The Pioneers had their game with Fred T. Foard washed out on Tuesday night. It's been rescheduled for Thursday night. Our coverage begins at 6 pm on Oldies 100.7 FM. There was one game played last night in the Northwestern 3A/4A Conference, and the outcome benefited the Pioneers. Hibriten defeated South Caldwell 8-7 down in Sawmills. The Panthers built an early 6-0 lead, but the Spartans came charging back, thanks to a six-run sixth inning, to go up 7-6. THe go-ahead run scored on a balk. But Hibriten regained the lead on A.J Watson's two-run double off losing pitcher Jacob Hatton in the top of the seventh. The Spartans loaded the bases in the bottom of the inning, but could not score. The loss leaves WHS just a game-and-a-half behind the Spartans for first place. Alexander Central and St. Stephens were rained out last night. They will make that game up tonight. And there's three more games on the schedule tonight. Hickory entertains North Lincoln, South Caldwell welcomes McDowell, and Hibriten travels to West Lincoln.
