War­riors end week by sting­ing Cal­houn

The Catoosa County News - - WORSHIP DIRECTORY - By Scott Herpst

It may not have been the per­fect 3-0 week they were hop­ing for, but last week was still a very prof­itable one for the LFO War­riors.

The Red-and-White got two re­gion vic­to­ries, none more im­por­tant than a solid win over then-No. 4-ranked Cal­houn. That gut-check vic­tory came just 24 hours af­ter a hum­bling loss to then-No. 2-ranked Ring­gold.

LFO 8, North Murray 5

LFO got four more hits and three more stolen bases from se­nior Andrew Brock in a Tues­day win over the Moun­taineers in Fort Oglethorpe.

Brock also scored twice in the win. He fin­ished his first 10 games with a whop­ping .758 bat­ting av­er­age and an through his team’s first 10 games with an on-base per­cent­age of .800. He has 16 RBI’s thus far to go with 16 runs scored and 16 stolen bases.

LFO took a 4-0 lead af­ter two in­nings, but the Moun­taineers would tie things up head­ing into the bot­tom of the fifth.

How­ever, the War­riors would put up three runs in the bot­tom of the fifth and both teams would tack on solo runs in the sixth in­ning be­fore LFO was able to slam the door in the sev­enth.

Ri­ley Mosier pitched the fi­nal 2.1 in­nings, giv­ing up an un­earned run on two hits with two strike­outs. He would pick up the win in re­lief of starter Zach Coots, who threw the first 4.2 in­nings. Coots al­lowed four earned runs on 10 hits, but struck out eight.

Bryce Don­na­hoo had a hit and drove in three in the vic­tory, while Jake Bass and Jack­son Her­rod both had two hits. Joseph Hein­rich knocked in two runs, while Bass and Gio­vanni Bar­roso each had one RBI.

Ring­gold 11, LFO 0

There wasn’t much in the way of good news for the War­riors on Thurs­day as they watched Ring­gold pitcher Holden Tucker strike out 11 of 15 bat­ters in a five-in­ning per­fect game.

The Tigers hits three homers, in­clud­ing a walk-off shot in the fifth, as they snapped LFO’s seven-game win­ning streak.

Jack­son Her­rod took the loss for LFO. He was one of four pitch­ers used by the War­riors in the game.

LFO 3, Cal­houn 1

The War­riors put Thurs­day’s loss be­hind them with an im­pres­sive home vic­tory over the Jack­ets.

Cal­houn scored their lone run in the top of the third in­ning, but LFO (9-3, 2-1) re­sponded with two runs in the bot­tom of the fourth and one more in the fifth, while their pitch­ing took care of the rest.

Mosier threw 6.2 strong in­nings, scat­ter­ing three hits and strik­ing out seven, to pick up the vic­tory, while Matthew Trus­ley came in with two outs in the sev­enth. He gave up an ini­tial hit, but got the next bat­ter on strikes to close it out and get the save.

Don­na­hoo, Bass and Ja­cob Flana­gan had the only hits for the War­riors, while Don­na­hoo, Bass and Her­rod had RBIs.

LFO was slated to play at Coahulla Creek on Tues­day, but de­tails were not pro­vided as of press time.

The War­riors will en­ter­tain Har­al­son County on Thurs­day be­fore hit­ting the road for a Fri­day game at Sono­rav­ille.
