Things were no better in round two of the state playoffs than they were in opening night play for Kershaw County teams as the Lugoff-Elgin and North Central baseball teams saw their seasons come to an end while the Camden and L-E softball teams were knocked out of the state tourney with second round losses.
Knights fall to Blacksburg: In baseball on Friday, some 18 hours after a trip to North Augusta, North Central went in the opposite direction for a lengthy trip to Blacksburg and the road-weary Knights were closed out in six innings by the hosts in an 11-1 loss.
BHS scored four in the first, one in the third and three runs in each of the third and sixth innings.
Tyler Bowers led NC with a two-hit night while Parker Jones added a single.
“They just pecked away at us all game,” said NC head coach Robbie Cash who added that eight hours on a bus in a 24-hour stretch did little to help his team.
NC played the game minus pitching ace and leading hitter Grayson King, who had a death in his family.
Demons upended by Knights: Saturday afternoon, West Florence used the 1-2 offensive punch of Zach Shields and Akeem Bostick at the top of its betting order and Brandon Baggett, who stymied the L-E bats as the visiting Knights left Optimist Field with a 10-1 victory.
Shields and Bostick had two hits each and combined to score six runs for the Knights, who scored once in the first off Demons’ starter Jacob Young to grab a 1-0 lead. The guests used a two-run top of the second to extend the margin to 3-0.
L-E got to  Baggett for a run in the home half of the second as freshman Russ Radcliff drove a two-out double to left field. He scored from there when Brock Robinson, an eighth-grader, lined an RBI single to trim the deficit to 3-1.
After a scoreless third, the Knights scored four times in the fourth before three more runs in the fifth to pull away to a commanding 10-1 lead.
L-E had five hits in the loss with sophomore Cody Mailly leading the way with a pair of singles.
In winning for the sixth time in seven decisions, Beggett fanned 10 Demon batters, including striking out the side in the bottom of the seventh.
CHS, L-E lose on softball diamond: In softball, Camden saw its season come to an end at the hands of Region 6-AAA rival Marlboro County in a 13-3 setback on Saturday.
Lugoff-Elgin’s post-season run was ended in a loss to a Lexington team which it had beaten twice during the regular season.
