Northview halts WSN streak

The W.S. Blue Eagles lost their first game of the season as they lost to the Northview Chiefs in a close contest 3-2 on Thursday.

It was a tough hard fought game as both teams gave there all and left everything on the field.

The Eagles struggled against the Chiefs, as they didn’t get a run until late in the fourth inning. The Chiefs jumped to a early two nothing run in the first inning.

Jennings Hobbs had three plate appearances, three at bats, one hit and one stolen base. Connor Moye had three plate appearances, three at bats and three assists. Brandon Moye had three plate appearances, three at bats, one hit and three assists.

Kristian Taylor had three plate appearances, three at bats and one hit. Hunter Revel had three plate appearances, three at bats, and one hit.

“The game with Northview was a game where we didn’t swing the bat well and their pitcher pitched well and got his team in the positions of where they needed to be,“ head coach Coy Campbell said. If we were to lose I’m glad we lost now, because it’s good to lose now than to lose in the playoffs next week.

The Eagles also dropped a game to the Jay Royals at home later week losing 11-6. The Eagles allowed the Royals to get three runs in the first inning and allowed them to get six in the sixth. The Eagles tried to respond by getting three runs in the fourth and two in the fifth, but it wasn’t enough.

Campbell said, “I tell the guys anybody can beat anybody on any day in baseball and that was the example on the last two games we played against Northview and Jay.”

The Eagles are now 20-2 and they are locking down and preparing for the playoffs next week. The Eagles will play either Andalusia or Daleville High School in the first round of the playoffs next Friday.

WSN Connor Moye has also been dominated as Gatorade player of the year in the state of AL.
