Game Recap:
South Iredell Vikings play host to conference opponent West Rowan Falcons. A back and forth game that would need an extra frame to eventually decide a winner.

Payne Stolsworth got the scoring started for the Falcons with a home run to deep left centerin the top of the 2nd inning. The Vikings immediately responded in the bottom of the 2nd with Josh Sherill scoring on a wild pitch to knot things at 1.

The Falcons tack on two more runs in the top of the 3rd retaking the lead.  The inning opened with a single from Carsen Bailey, followed by a walk and a single from Daniel Sell.  With the bases loaded South Iredell starter Josh Sherrill got a strikeout working to control some damage.  With Steven Smith at the plate, Sherill would balk in one run and allow a sacrifice fly from Smith to push the lead to 3-1.

The Vikings pull within one run with a solo homerun by Junior Jack Fortin in the 4th.  The Vikings worked to take the lead in the bottom of the 5th, loading the bases where Fortin cleared them with a double.    Gage Tomlin would follow withg a RBI double, scoring Fortin and moving South Iredell to a 6-3 lead.

West Rowan answered in the 6th to tie the game.  Cameron Graham had a sacrifice fly in the inning.  Moving to the 8th, West Rowan would strike again.  Using 3 walks to start the inning, loading the bases, Jake Perez hit what appeared to be a sacrifice fly to right but Sherill, now in right field, cut down Lane Adkins trying to score.  With two outs and runners on 1st and 2nd, Steven Smith singled to center scoring Michael Molenda, moving West Rowan up 7-6.
