NATCHEZ — Thanks to a two-hit shutout by Colin Dollar and a nine-run fourth inning, the ACCS Rebels took a 13-0 District 3-AA win over the visiting Riverfield Academy Raiders.

The Rebels (10-7, 5-2) dominated every phase of the game and took an early 4-0 lead three innings into the game.

“This was the most complete game we have played all year,” ACCS head coach Hunter McKeiver said. “We put everything together. I’m very proud of our team.”

The win allows ACCS to maintain second place in the District 3-AA standings, one game behind cross-town rival Trinity Episcopal.

ACCS broke the game wide open with nine runs in the bottom of the fourth inning with T.J. Johnson knocking in three of those runs on two doubles.

Chris Perry and Hunter Russ also hit RBI doubles in the inning and gave ACCS a 13-run lead at the end of the fourth inning.

Dollar held Riverfield from mounting a comeback and the Rebels took the win after five innings of play.

“Colin did a tremendous job for us,” McKeiver said. “He hit his locations tonight. When he gets on the hill he is tough to match.”

Dollar received the win for ACCS while Corbin Cater was dealt the loss for Riverfield.

Johnson batted 2-for-3 with two doubles and three RBIs.

ACCS travels to Riverfield Friday for a District 3-AA doubleheader.
