Sports Report for Tuesday, 4-24-2018

PC Notes… Click on the scores of the following for more information.

  • Softball… The PC softball team traveled to Buies Creek, NC this past weekend to take on the Campbell Camels… On Friday the Blue Hose trailed by 4 but fought back only to have their rally fall short as Campbell took a 5-3 win… The two teams played a doubleheader on Saturday and the news is not good here as Campbell won both games by scores of 7-2 and 8-1… The softball season for PC is winding down fast and their last home games of the season will be tomorrow (weather permitting) when they host the Bulldogs of SC State in a doubleheader starting at 2:00 pm.
  • Baseball… After taking the 7-4 win against South Carolina a week ago tonight, the PC baseball team traveled to Gardner-Webb for a 3-game series with the Runnin Bulldogs over the weekend and each of the 3 games were decided by a single run… On Friday PC lost to the G-W by a score of 3-2 after butting 2 runs on the board in the first inning but could not hold the lead…  The Saturday game was very similar to the Friday game in that PC jumped out to an early 2-0 lead and again could not hold it as they lost by a score of 5-4… The final game of the series on Sunday saw G-W jump out to an early lead to go up 6-1 and then PC rally for 4 runs in the in the 7th and 8th inning but came up just short as the Bulldogs took a 6-5 win to earn a sweep of the series… The team travels to Clemson tomorrow for a 6:30 pm game (weather permitting) with the Tigers.

Local Notes:

  • SoccerLast Thursday the Red Devil Soccer team traveled to Irmo to play the Providence Athletic Club Panthers… The game was sloppy offensively, but both teams played stout defense and avoided mistakes. Neither team was able to score at all, so the game and to overtime and eventually penalty kicks… The Panthers drove home 4 of their kicks, while the Devils only made 2, ending the game in a win for the Panthers…. The team was supposed to play Laurens yesterday but that match has been canceled and will not be rescheduled…This Thursday the team will be taking on Chapman at Woodruff HS to break a tie for 2nd place in the region… It is scheduled to start at 5:30 and the team would like to see a large number of Red Devil fans travel the short distance to Woodruff to cheer them on.

Pros… Click on the scores of the following for more information.

  • Drive… As you might suspect, the Greenville Drive had their game with the Augusta GreenJackets postponed due to rain and will attempt to get it in Wednesday as part of a doubleheader… In the mean time they will try to get a game in today with the GreenJackets at 2:05 pm as Furman is set to host South Carolina tonight at Flour Field at 7:00 pm… Anyone want to bet on whether either of those games get played?
  • Reds 10 – Braves 4… The Braves started their road trip last night in Cincinnati and the two teams were tied 2-2 going into the bottom of the 6th inning when the Reds struck for 6 runs and then went on to take a 10-4 over the Bravos.
