Broughton JV Defeats Sanderson 4-3, to Close their Winning Season
Noah Yarborough pitched a solid game for The Caps today, completing all 7 innings, while keeping the Spartans at bay. This was an exciting game to watch. The Caps won as a team, with only one error on defense.

The next 2 innings were scoreless for both teams as both pitchers were controlling the bats. Yarborough had 2 Ks in the 3rd.
The 4thinning was exciting. Baldwin and Collins led off for Broughton with nice hits, and seemed to rattle the Spartan pitcher. Morris pushed one enough to get Eller home. Robinson came in to run for Caps catcher Morris, and made it home on a steal and a couple of Spartan errors. The Spartans retaliated with a run, but The Caps stayed focused and closed the inning. Caps 2, Spartans 2

With 2 Games to Go the Caps Still Control their own Destiny
The Caps got a big win on Tuesday against Heritage. Broughton won the slugfest 14-10 on a hot muggy night. With every starter getting at least one hit the Caps put themselves back in the driver seat to get into the State Playoffs. With a win tonight and another win on Monday the worst they can do is end up in a tie with Heritage. If that happens a one game playoff will be held to fill the last State Playoff spot.
A 40 min lightning delay and hot muggy conditions put a strain on both pitching staffs Tuesday night but the Caps bats picked up the slack. Jr. Max Magallanes led the team going 3-4 (2 Runs). Jr. Joe Bialkowski (2-5 2B RBI), Soph Rob Case (2-5 RBI), Jr. Wilson White (1-2 RBI), Jr. Austin Walker (1-3 RBI 3 Runs), Jr. Maclin Bathelor (1-4 2 RBIs), Jr Jackson Williams (1-2 RBI), Fr. Dom Ford (1-5 2 RBIs) and Sr. Zi Hopkins (1-5 RBI)
The Caps next game will be at Wakefield on Friday night 7:00pm- Come support the Caps!!!!
