Placeholder Image
Saving their best for last, Lugoff-Elgin and host Camden sent their respective aces to the mound in Wednesday’s Telasco Alarm Service Camden Spring Break Tournament finale.For six innings, the battle between Taylor Lunsford and Camden’s Jake Ansley lived up to --- if not, exceeded --- nearly all expectations as the two dueled to a 1-1 standoff. Then, the wheels came off for the Bulldog defense as they helped L-E to a six-run top of the seventh, paving the way for a 7-3 Demons’ victory.L-E won the tourney title with a sweep of its three games while CHS played it best game of the week on Wednesday after losing its first two games at American Legion Park.Throughout this season, the Bulldogs have had an inning or two which have undone all the good they did the rest of the game. On Wednesday, those breakdowns were saved for last.Camden aided the Demons’ five-hit seventh frame by committing four errors behind Ansley and reliever Jalen Rice, making the hosts’ two runs in the bottom of the inning off Lunsford as simply window-dressing.“We have to be able to, mentally, overcome that,” said CHS head coach Denny Beckley’s of his team’s seventh-inning miscues.
