The Jersey Panthers varsity baseball team played two games last week, one against the Civic Memorial Eagles and the Calhoun Warriors.
The Panthers played their first game on Thursday, April 14, hosting the Eagles in a conference game. The Eagles made good progress in the first inning, with two runs scored in the top of the inning. The following two innings were silent for both teams, as neither could get anything going.
The top of the fourth inning saw action from the Eagles, who scored one runs to make the game 3-0.
The Panthers came back in the bottom of the inning with one run of their own, and the game stood at 3-1.
The Eagles drove in another run in the top of the fifth, extending their lead to 4-1. The Panthers failed to score anything in the bottom half of the fifth.
With the Panthers down by three in the sixth inning, they rallied in the bottom half to score two runs and were only down by one run. Then in the bottom of the seventh, the Panthers scored two and won the game 5-4 against the Eagles.
Then on Friday, April 15, the Panthers traveled to Calhoun for a non-conference game against the Warriors. The Panthers made strong moves in the first inning, scoring two runs and then three more in the second. The Warriors stayed scoreless in both.
The third inning saw the Panthers driving in two more runs while the Warriors managed one in the bottom of the inning with the game 7-1.
This would be the only run the Warriors would get in this game, as the Panthers scored one run in the fourth, one in the fifth, and four in the sixth. The game was called with the Panthers winning 13-1.
The Panthers currently hold an 11-7 record, 5-4 at home and 6-3 away.
They’re currently second in the Mississippi Valley Conference behind Civic Memorial.
