Big Inning Carries Hitters
Sophomore Paul Mahoney had two hits, two walks and scored three times and senior Mark Howlett pitched five strong innings.
Collegiate scored first in the second inning when Mahoney doubled and scored when Jackson Burke reached on an error. Mahoney again manufactured a run in the fourth inning with a walk, two stolen bases, and a wild pitch.
The Oaks broke open the game with four runs after two were out in the fifth inning. Joe Morrison reached on an error before sophomore Jimmy Hurley singled with two outs. Morrison went to third on a botched pickoff play and then scored when Cabell Thomas reached on an error. Mahoney’s single plated a pair before eighth grader Hunter Flora singled to score the fourth run.
The Oaks added a run in the sixth inning when Burke walked and scored on Howlett’s triple to center and another in the seventh when Thomas singled, stole a base, and scored on Burke’s single.
Earlier, the Oaks dropped a game 4-1 to Norfolk Academy despite a strong pitching performance from sophomore Reid Wilkinson.
