Apr. 25, 2013 @ 11:06 PM


Orange 6, Cedar Ridge 5

HILLSBOROUGH — The Battle of Hillsborough went to Orange High School Wednesday night as the Panthers improved to 18-2 and dropped visiting cross-town rival Cedar Ridge to 7-12 in a comeback nail-biter.

The game doubled as a fundraiser for the VS. Cancer charity to fight children’s cancer. Participants shaved their heads after the game to raise funds for the charity. The event delayed the reporting of the game until today.

On the field, Cedar Ridge grabbed a 3-0 lead in the top of the third only to see Orange rally to tie it in its half of the inning. The Red Wolves regained the lead in the top of the sixth, 5-3, but again Orange rallied in its own half, this time taking a lead and giving starter Jonah Neville (2-0) a win. Ace relief star Jon Evans nailed down the save, his eighth of the year.

Evans also went 3 for 4 with a pair of RBI in the win.

Durham Academy 10, Ravenscroft 4

DURHAM — Durham Academy (2-13) won its second game of the season, scoring four runs in the bottom of the fifth and sixth innings to beat visiting Ravenscroft (7-10).

The Cavaliers had 13 hits in the seven-inning game as Davis Morgan went 3 for 3 with two RBI, Neil Cornwell had a pair of doubles and drove in three runs and Kelly Moore also drove in three. Brandon Regnerus went 2 for 2 for DA, which got a complete game shutout by Jack Clayton.


Jordan 9, Riverside 0

DURHAM — Jordan (13-2-2 overall) remained atop the PAC-6 4-A standings at 9-0-2 as Annalies Jobsis, Amy Hicks and Rachel Hill scored two goals apiece, Kat Ford and Scottie McLeod each scored and Riverside added an own-goal.

Jordan’s PAC-6 ties were scoreless draws against fellow PAC-6 unbeaten East Chapel Hill. If both teams win out in conference play as expected, they will tie for the PAC-6 title and state playoff seeding will be determined by a coin flip.

N.C. Science & Math 6, Franklinton 0

DURHAM — Madison Boice and Mary Poletti each scored a pair of goals and Meghan Cole and Ryan McCord also scored as N.C. Science and Math improved to 13-2-1 after peppering Franklinton with 30 shots on goal. Jenny Wei picked up a one-save shutout in goal.


Breese sweeps PAC-6 weekly tournament

The conference will hold its championship tournament Monday at 3 p.m. at Croasdaile Country Club.

Riverside had a balanced attack with Joe Jongkind shooting 38 to finish third and teammates Newt Barringer, Carson Hunt and Junior Schrickx tied for fifth at 40. Jesse Moore of Person was second at 35 and Michael Wicker of Northern was foruth at 39.

Durham Academy 294, Wake Christian 382

DURHAM — Will Beischer fired a 2-over-par 72 Thursday to lead Durham Academy to an 88-stroke rout of Wake Christian Academy at Hope Valley Country Club.
