TYLER BOWERS DOUBLED HOME the first Post 17 run in Thursdays loss to Hartsville with a first inning double.
Just when it looked as if Kershaw County Post 17 was ready to put Hartsville in its rear-view mirror, this happens.On a night in which the 17ers were set to wrap up finishing no worse than second in League III American Legion play, Hartsville handed visiting KC a 13-3 setback Thursday in Kelleytown. The loss sets up an interesting final week of the regular season for the locals.With its win over Dalzell-Shaw on Wednesday, Sumter guaranteed itself no worse than a tie for the League III crown. It would take the 17ers sweeping a three games in as many nights series with Sumter, which starts at home tonight for Craig Smith’s 17ers, for KC to pull even with the P-15s atop the standings.Equally important this week, is for Kershaw County to take a game, or two, from Curtis Johnson and company in order to avoid falling into a tie or, worse, ending up a game behind Hartsville and finish in third place in League III. KC enters its series with Sumter sporting an 8-4 league record.
