|Hounds hold off Tallulah|
Huntington junior pitcher Jordan Wilson held Tallulah to two hits as the Hounds defeated the Trojans 2-1 in Tallulah Tuesday.
The game was the District 6A East opener as the Hounds' contest against Tensas Monday was suspended with Huntington leading 4-1 after four innings.
Wilson struck out eight Tallulah batters and walked three over seven innings.
"Jordan pitched well, he was the turning point," said Huntington coach Mitch Ashmore. "But we still haven't played as well as I would like to see us play."
Huntington scored all the runs it needed in the third inning as Jody Cottongin reached on an error and moved to second on a sacrifice bunt by Aaron Maroon.
Jordan Wilson grounded out to third to move Cottongin to third and Landon Willard reached first on a walk.
"We then went to a forced balk play where when the pitcher starts his pitch we ease off the base a little more than usual and the guy balked. We had to manufacture a run that way," Ashmore said.
Willard moved to second on the play and Josh Lee followed with a groundball that the first baseman missed, scoring Willard
"We made four errors and some silly mistakes, but Jordan pitched out of everything," Ashmore said. "The field was covered in sand, so it was tough conditions. The main thing is we got a district win. Hopefully our bats will come around."
Huntington's game with Tensas Monday will be picked up on March 25 when the Hounds go to Tensas.
"The conditions were not very good and we just tried to get in a complete game," said Huntington coach Mitch Ashmore. "We played as long as we could and they batted four times and we were able to get the game in. I thought we did some things OK and other things I wasn't happy about, but the main thing is we got a win in our first district game."
The contest was played in a continual drizzle that turned into a steady rain by the fourth inning, forcing the game to be stopped in the fourth inning.
The Hounds scored all the runs they needed in the first inning as doubles by Jody Cottongin and Josh Lee ignited a 3-run inning.
Huntington would not manage any other hits in the contest, but did not need any as Lee kept the Chief bats quiet throughout the contest, allowing only one hit.
"Josh has pitched well in his last two games," Ashmore said. "He did struggle at times against Tensas not hitting his spots like I wanted."
J.T. James picked up the loss for Tensas, allowing only the two hits.
Huntington plays at Franklin Academy Friday and hosts Amite School Center Saturday.
