After a scoreless first inning, the Rebels struck first blood in the bottom of the second. Carroll led off the inning with a single, and was then driven in on a double by Josh Calcote, who was celebrating his 18th birthday Friday.

But the third inning was where ACCS did the most damage.

Brumfield and Sanderson led off with singles, and were then both driven in on a double by Austin Weeks. Perry walked, Carroll got on on a bunt single Britton McCall walked to load the bases.

A passed ball scored Weeks, and then a fielder’s choice scored another run.

The Rebels (12-13) then led 5-0 at the close of the inning and never looked back.

“We’ve been having great pitching and playing great defense,” ACCS coach Ron Rushing said. “We just haven’t been hitting the ball well. Today we did a much better job.”

Centreville head coach Jason Horn said the game was another example of what a tough season it has been for his young Tigers (4-18).

“We bunted back to the pitcher a couple times, we left guys on and we made a lot of mental mistakes in the field and mistakes throwing,” Horn said. “Everything bad that could have happened, happened.”

Sanderson took the win on the mound for ACCS, while Brad Jelks took the loss for Centreville.

Carroll batted 2-for-4 for ACCS and Perry was 2-for-4 with two doubles.

Jelks batted 2-for-3 to lead Centreville.
