Columbus County moves into DYB majors final four

Posted on: 07.19.2018 at 10:24 a.m.

Columbus County’s bats caught up with their pitching Wednesday night as the offense and defense both put on a show in the fifth round of the NCDYB Majors State Tournament being held in Kenansville.  Ty Bowen and Junior Stewart combined for a no-hitter.  Bowen struck out two batters over two and one-third innings.  Stewart came in and struck out five Burgaw batters over two and two-thirds innings in a game that was shortened due to the 10-run rule.

Columbus County batters provided eight hits with Junior Stewart, Ayden Graham and Maddox Coleman leading the way with two hits and two RBI’s each.  Evan Ward hit a towering homerun in the second inning and drove in the game ending tenth run in the fifth inning for Columbus County.  CJ Waddell also had a hit for Columbus County.

Columbus County earned a berth into the final four and will ply the undefeated Leland team Thursday night at 6 p.m.  Dunn and West Robeson are the other two remaining teams that play in an elimination game at 6 p.m as well.

Dunn will be pulling for Columbus County while playing West Robeson. If Columbus County and Dunn both win, Columbus, Dunn and Leland would each have one loss. Dunn would move into the championship game since it has played one more game than the other two. Columbus and Leland would have to play again to determine who would face Dunn in the winner-take-all championship game. Of course, all of this is predicated on Columbus and Dunn winning tonight.
