RAYMOND — Sean Kerry Cothern’s three-run home run highlighted a four-run rally in the top of the eighth inning as the Adams County Christian School Rebels defeated the Central Hinds Academy Cougars 10-7 last Friday afternoon in eight innings to split a varsity doubleheader in MAIS District 3-5A action.
ACCS head coach Jake Winston said the Rebels had just two base hits going into the seventh inning of Game 2 of the twinbill and were trailing 5-1. But the visiting team from Natchez would not go away at all.
“We scored five runs in the top of the seventh inning to go up 6-5. Then they scored one run in the bottom of the seventh to tie it (at 6-all),” Winston said. “We scored four runs in the top of the eighth and they only scored one in the bottom of the eighth.”
