August 25, 2010

Mamie Allen and Hunter Coleman had put in a solid four innings as pitcher and catcher, respectively, for the Oak Hill Academy Diamond Raiders (9-8; 0-3) on Tuesday afternoon.
Due up back-to-back in the bottom of the fourth, they knew two runs would end the game, and both batters reached base to set up the final two scores in a 12-0 victory over the Diamond Patriots of Heritage Academy.
The Lady Raiders were coming off of a hard 4-2 loss at Manchester on Monday, which saw a 2-0 seventh inning lead slip away.

Watching the game is harder than it sounds

I have to admit that I have a refrigerator full of generic brand diet colas. They may not taste as good as Diet Coke, but does Diet Coke really taste as good as regular Coke?
The point is that if you look around my place, and if you look around your own house, you’ll probably find that you’ve gone generic on a lot of products. It might be food, drinks or even paper plates.
Companies will always find a way to make a cheaper version of a product that often runs out of my price range, and I don’t mind that.

Lady Eagles continue streak against Central

August 25, 2010

The Diamond Eagles of Hebron Christian School continued their domination of the region on Monday night, with an 18-2 win over Central Academy.
For the last two weeks, Hebron has been on an offensive surge that has been coupled with good defense and excellent pitching.
Central was able to hold the Lady Eagles to minimal damage for the first four innings, but in the fifth, Hebron exploded.
“It really took us a while to adjust to the pitching,” said Hebron head coach Cass Tapley. “We didn’t have any K’s in the game but just couldn’t do anything with the ball for a while.”

Gregg says ‘lack of concentration’ key in loss to Heritage last Friday

August 25, 2010

It’s a new week for the Oak Hill Academy Raiders, who are coming off a week one 28-14 loss to the Heritage Academy Patriots.
Friday night’s game came down to which team could get the big plays, and it was Heritage that took advantage of a couple of defensive miscues by the Raiders for a pair of touchdowns.
The Raider offense could not get free as many big runs as the Patriots did, and they were left two touchdowns in the hole when the buzzer ended the game.
