Alexander Central 1
Cox Mill 0
Chesney Millsaps blasted two-out, opposite field home run in the 9th inning to give Alexander Central a win over Cox Mill Friday night in Taylorsville. With the win ACHS advances to the Western 3A Regional Finals against Carson High of Rowan County.
The game was nothing short of epic on a field where there are no shortage of great moments frozen in time, add this one ! Two rain delays interrupted the pitching duel between Alexander Central’s Millsaps and Madison Michael for the visitors from Concord. Michael frustrated and dominated the Lady Cougar lineup allowing only 1 hit through 7 innings while Millsaps scattered 12. It was the Blue and Gold defense that stood rock solid throughout the night and some less than clutch moments on the base paths by Cox Mill. The visitors had a runner picked off second and a pair of runners gunned down at the plate including one in the top of the 9th.
ACHS, now 24-5 will begin a best of three series against Carson who advanced with an 8-3 victory on Thursday over Marvin Ridge. Game one of the series will be played at Central Park on Tuesday with game two set for Wednesday at Carson. If a game three is to be played, it would be in Taylorsville.
