May. 14, 2013 @ 11:18 PM


Voyager 5, Camden 3

DURHAM — Voyager Academy starter Chad Sykes held visiting Camden to three runs and four hits and that was enough for the Viking to advance to the state 1-A quarterfinals Tuesday night at Southern High School, Voyager’s “home” field.

Coltyn Faucette’s two-run single in the second inning broke a scoreless tie — and the Vikings took advantage of three Camden errors to two more in the third and an insurance run in the bottom of the sixth after Camden had pulled to within 4-3.

Camden starter and loser Evan Phillips was ejected in the top of the sixth after he elected not to slide into home on a squeeze bunt as required by state high school rules.. He tried to run over Voyager catcher Hunter Coates, but the only damage he managed was to cut Coates’ nose.

The Vikings (19-4) will host Carolina 12 1-A Conference rival Roxboro Community School in Friday night’s state quarterfinals. The game will be played at 7 at Southern High School.

Orange 6, Northern Guilford 4

HILLSBOROUGH — Orange improved to 24-2 and advanced to the third round of the NCHSAA 2-A playoffs.

The Panthers made a winner of starter Jordan Toney (5-1) with a five run third inning that overcame a 2-1 Northern Guilford lead. Andrew Toney was 2 for 3 with a home run and a pair of RBI and Nick Debo went 2 for 3 with a double and drove in a run for Orange.

Reliever Jon Evans picked up his ninth save of the season for Orange.

Carrboro 8, Tarboro 0

CARRBORO — Seth Andres excelled at the plate and on the mound as Carrboro shut out Tarrboro 8-0 in a NCSAA 2-A second-round game.
