Cavs down Wolves

Lincolnton fell to East Rutherford 9-0 on Thursday.
Kyle Campfield hit a solo-homerun in the top of the fifth, making the score 2-0. The Cavaliers then reeled off six runs in the seventh, aided by two Wolves’ errors.
Sophomore Tyler Smith worked six innings and struck out seven to earn the win. Senior Dustin Weaver pitched a complete game, gave up nine hits and allowed three earned runs in the losing cause.
Leading hitters for the Wolves were: Weaver who went 1-for-4, Shane Brackett who went 1-for-2 with a walk. Nate Wright and Justin Green both went 1-for-3.
Lincolnton (7-7, 3-4) has now lost four games in a row. Wolves’ head coach Cole Sigmon is hoping things turn around Friday versus county rival and Midwest 2A foe, West Lincoln.
“We got outplayed. We just need to win,” said Sigmon. “Any way we can get it, we just need to win.”
Sigmon believes his team had opportunities, but just failed to capitalize.
“The first four innings we had opportunities, but just couldn’t get the big hit,” he said. “Against good teams, you’re only going to get so many. If you don’t take advantage of them; you’re going to come up on the short end.”
East Rutherford is second in the MW 2A with a 5-2 mark.
