Tigers complete sweep of Bobcats

Friday, April 25, 2008

Having already clinched the District 10-AA regular season title, the Marshall County Tigers overcame an extremely sluggish start to defeat archrival Giles County, 12-8, at home Tuesday on Senior Night.

After needing a late comeback to defeat the Bobcats, 4-3, the previous evening, the Tigers (18-6, 13-1 District) once again found themselves playing catch up Tuesday evening and trailed Giles County 7-2 heading into the bottom of the fourth inning.

The Bobcats saw all their hard work go for naught, as MCHS crossed home plate 10 times over the next two innings with the help of some fielding miscues and erratic pitching by Giles County to seize a 12-7 advantage before eventually claiming the four-run victory.

While Marshall County had already clinched the top seed in the upcoming District tournament, MCHS head coach Joe George believed it was important for the Tigers to end league play on a positive note.
