Hawks fall to Alcorn Central
Alcorn Central used a three-run fifth inning to move past Myrtle, winning 4-2 on Saturday.
The Bears struck first, stealing home and taking the 1-0 lead. The Hawks quickly answered in the bottom of the frame, placing runners on the corners and Anthony Lipsey coming home on a wild pitch to tie the game.
The score remained tied at one until the fifth, when the Bears loaded the bases with one out. A hit batter gave Alcorn Central the lead, followed by an RBI single and a Hawk error, making it 4-1.
The Hawks made it a two-point game in the bottom of the fifth, as Zack Perkins brought home Austin Floyd on a double. Floyd reached base on a lead off double to open the inning. Perkins led the Hawks with four hits in the game.
