Ea­gles poised to be danger­ous seed in the play­offs

The Covington News - - SPORTS - SHAKEEM HOLLOWAY shol­loway@cov­news.com

East­side com­pleted a sweep of Spald­ing in a dou­ble­header at home on Thurs­day to give the Ea­gles a shot at ob­tain­ing a No. 3 seed in the state play­offs at min­i­mum. With the weirdly con­structed way East­side’s re­gion is set up, de­spite go­ing 15-3 in Re­gion 4-AAAA, the Ea­gles will likely be the No. 4 seed forc­ing them to travel to play Wayne County in the first round of the state play­offs.

“I feel like we’re a whole lot bet­ter than a fourth place team, but it’s out of our hands. We had one bad week. We’ve only lost in the re­gion one week,” Bruce Evans, Ea­gles’ head base­ball coach, said.

East­side will fin­ish tied with Pike County for the sec­ond best record in the re­gion, yet the Ea­gles won’t have the op­por­tu­nity to host their own play­off
