Carson- 2  East Lincoln- 4

PBR of North Carolina was in Denver, NC on Tuesday May 17th for a 3A third round playoff game as the #11 East Lincoln Mustangs hosted the #14 Carson Cougars. 

A back and forth game early with East Lincoln taking the lead for good in the bottom of the 4th inning. Carson got a strong start from Hayden Simmerson who struck out 8 in 5.2 innings of work. The Mustang offense was able to capitalize on some Carson errors that led to 2 unearned runs and also got RBI hits from Graham Smiley and Evan Matile. East Lincoln pitcher Isaac Armstrong went the distance and seemed to get better each inning, he finished the game with 9 strikeouts and did not issue a walk while scattering 5 hits.

With the win East Lincoln advances to the 4th round and will face a conference rival on Friday Night when they travel to St. Stephens. The two teams split their season series with St. Stephens winning their third matchup in the conference tournament. Game time is at 7pm on Friday with a berth to the 3A West Finals on the line.
