The reigning 2A State Champions defeated North County on Friday, 2-1. Dillion Waters (Salisbury) threw a complete-game three-hitter, while striking out eight and only walking one.

Southern started the scoring in the second on a 2-out RBI single off the bat of Chance Simmons. They would score again in the bottom of the sixth on a sac-bunt that turned into a throwing error and game-winning run.

North County tried to come back in the top of the 7th, but was only able to plate one across.

Waters grew stronger and more efficient as the game progressed. He struck out the side in the sixth. His fastball ranged between 79-85 with some late life. He showed a sharp breaking ball that was difficult to pick up and feel for a changeup at 69-73 mph.
