ORANGE CAPS PERFECT BIG EIGHT 3-A CONFERENCE SEASON WITH WIN OVER CEDAR RIDGE

In an odd twist of fate Orange finished its season undefeated in conference play and soared to a 20-win milestone in unfamiliar territory — at home.

Buoyed by a pair of early big innings and fighting off a late-rally by cross-town rival Cedar Ridge, Orange won 10-6 Friday night during a senior night game that ended two straight months of road games.

“I’m sure there was a little bit of nervousness. We played 20 straight road games, and so they’re back here and they’re excited to be back on the field for this last home game,” said Panthers coach Dean Dease.

“We played Feb. 28 here and March 5, and been on the road since after the [March 6] ice storm, so it wasn’t quite the home opener,” Dease said. The weight of the ice on the backstop netting caused the wooden poles to snap, crushing the backstop and sections of the brick backstop wall.

“It just was a disaster. You couldn’t play at all,” Dease said.

Dease said he challenged his team midway through the conference schedule to go undefeated, and they reminded him Friday that they met his goal, as well as getting the 20th victory.
