|Huntington eliminated from postseason|
Huntington School will not be going to the playoffs or to a district tournament for the first time in several years as the Hounds fell to Franklin 9-7 Tuesday in Ferriday.
The Hounds dropped to 3-4 in District 6-A East. WCCA clinched the district title with a win over Tensas and Franklin Academy and Tallulah are competing for the other spot in the district tournament.
The top two teams in District 6-A West and 6-A East advance to the district tournament.
"We've had some timely hits lately, but haven't been very consistent on the mound, and that's disappointing considering our expectations coming into the year," said Huntington coach Mitch Ashmore. "We just didn't close it out against Franklin. But we're still going to play hard in our remaining games. We still have to go out and represent ourselves because we've been in situations over the years where we were counting on other teams to play hard when they were out of it. We're a young team and we'll be back. But we're going to continue to play this year as if we are still in the thick of it."
Huntington left one runner stranded in the first inning after Jody Cottongin led off with a single, and two runners in the second inning after Joey Roberts and Tyler Pere´ had back-to-back singles with two outs.
Franklin got on the board in the second inning with a single run on two walks and hit batter.
Huntington got on the board in the fourth inning, scoring three runs before Franklin answered with three runs in the fifth.
The Hounds scored three more runs in the sixth inning to go back up 6-4 as Roberts led off with a home run, but Franklin tallied five runs in the top of the seventh, with four coming on a grand slam by Christian Wallace.
Huntington scored one in the seventh to come up two runs short.
Franklin managed only four hits in the game off of Landon Willard and Josh Lee.
The loss overshadowed a big night at the plate for Roberts, who homered, tripled and singled in the game.
Pere´ had three singles, while Willard and Cottongin singled twice.
Aaron Maroon and Jordan Wilson doubled for Huntington.
On Friday, Tallulah Academy scored three runs in the top of the fifth inning to defeat Huntington 7-5 and drop the Hounds to 3-3 in District 6-A East.
The Trojans scored three runs in their first at-bat and led 4-1 before Huntington scored four in the third to take a 5-4 lead.
Landon Willard doubled and singled for Huntington, while Phillip Washington and Josh Lee had two singles each.
Huntington goes to Brookhaven Thursday before visting Wilkinson County Christian Academy on Friday. The Hounds visit Claiborne on Monday before hosting Riverdale on Tuesday.
