The eighth-grade starting pitcher Conner Aplin could not locate his pitches early and gave way to teammate Matt Petty.
Petty took over in the game five batters into the second inning with ACCS down in the game 3-1.
Petty could do no better against a power-hitting team such as Central Private that starts six seniors.
After three full innings Central Private had a big lead 11-7.
Helping start the scoring for Central Private in their third inning was Parker Toural, who had a solo home run to left field.
Colby Irwin had a triple that drove in three more runs.
In the bottom of the third inning, ACCS was able to get to the starting pitcher Cotton Huff of Central Private.
Huff showed very little as a starting pitcher and ACCS was able to get hits if he got the ball near the plate.
Aplin started the game with a single, then Jack Whitehead hit a double.
In the third inning is where Huff lost it. He hit two batters, had a wild pitch and also walked four batters. ACCS took advantage and was able to score 6 runs to trail 11-7.
ACCS could not stop Central, they had too many hits and ACCS had too many errors throughout the rest of the game.
Trip Flotte and Peyton Teural got pitching work in relief for Central. The final score was a lopsided district game score of 29-8.
“We got down by 10 runs and battled back,” said Matthew Freeman, ACCS head coach. “But we couldn’t stop them.”
