NATCHEZ — After a rough first inning, Colin Dollar did not allow a run or a hit over the next five to lead the Adams County Christian School Rebels to a 10-2 win against Prairie View Academy Tuesday.

Dollar gave up two singles and a two-run homer to Jeremy Cooper in the top of the first inning. After that, Dollar struck out seven while walking just one batter over six innings.

“He gave up three hits in the first inning. Once he got past that, he settled down and threw strikes,” ACCS coach Hunter McKeivier said. “He kept the batters off-balance.”

The score was tied at 2-2 until a Bryce Murray single coupled with an error allowed three runs to score in the bottom of the second inning and gave the Rebels the lead for good. They added five more runs in the bottom of the fourth to put the game out of reach.

“The fourth inning was a combination of walks and a single,” McKievier said. “Brandon Sanders had a run-scoring single. We made them throw strikes and it worked in our favor.”

Sanders led ACCS (8-5, 2-0) at the plate, hitting 3-for-4, while T.J. Johnson was 2-for-4 with a double and four RBI.

Huntington 12, Tallulah Academy 11

TALLULAH, La. — Josh Lee and Jess Dossett each hit home runs as the Hounds held off a late rally to defeat the Trojans Tuesday afternoon in an MPSA District 6-A game.

After two and a half innings, it looked like Huntington was on its way to an easy win over Tallulah Academy with an 11-4 lead. But the Trojans responded with three runs in the bottom of the third inning to make the score 11-7.

“Jordan Wilson pitched his heart out, and our bats came alive a little bit,” Huntington coach Leo Eliser said. “I started our seniors for the most part and told them it was on their shoulders.”

Huntington (2-5, 2-3) didn’t score again until the top of the sixth inning to go up 12-7. Tallulah Academy put up four runs in the bottom of the seventh to cut the lead to one run, but that was as close as they could get.

Centreville Academy 10,

Silliman Institute 0 (5 innings)

CLINTON, La. — Winning pitcher Kyle Brown went all five innings for Centreville as he threw a no-hitter, struck out nine and walked just two. He got all the run support he needed when the Tigers scored four runs in the top of the first inning.

But Centreville (9-5, 1-1) wasn’t done yet. Led by Logan Felder and Emile Garrett, the Tigers scored three runs in the top of the second, two in the top of the fourth and one in the top of the fifth. Felder went 3-for-4, Garrett was 2-for-4 with a double and Daniel Perkins hit a three-run double.

Franklin Academy 6, WCCA 4

WOODVILLE — Eight errors proved costly for Wilkinson County Christian Academy, as the Rams lost to Franklin Academy Tuesday night.

Both teams had eight hits, but neither team scored after the fourth inning. Besides the errors, WCCA (6-10, 2-3) could not get the timely hits it needed to win, even though Sutton Olive and Randy Bell both had three hits.

Franklin Academy (10-6, 5-0) and WCCA scored one run each in the first inning, but the Cougars scored three runs in the top of the second inning to take a 4-1 lead. The Rams scored two runs in the bottom of the second. However, the Cougars scored one run in each of the next two innings to make it a 6-3 game.
