CENTREVILLE — After losing a district doubleheader on the road to Central Private School Saturday, the Centreville Academy Tigers got back on the winning track with a 10-0 win over the Adams County Christian School Rebels in five innings Monday afternoon.
Zach Moore went all five innings and held ACCS to just four hits. He struck out eight batters and walked four. Luke Thomas was charged with the loss after giving up seven runs on three hits in three innings. The defense behind him did not help him as the Rebels committed four errors.

The Tigers scored one run in the bottom of the fourth and two runs in the bottom of the fifth to defeat the Rebels by way of the 10-run-rule after five innings. Noah Burns went 2-for-3 with one run batted in and Tyler Caston had a double.
