Midway  8 South Johnston  5

A very disciplined and aggressive Midway team completed the two game sweep for the week  at South Johnston on Friday night.  South Johnston came out banging in the first as they put up a 3 spot.  The first two batters for South drew walks and Midway had a costly error as both runners scored.  A single by Kellen Smith was followed up by with a double by Will Johnson to add another run early for South Johnston as they led 3-0.  

Midway was able to hang around as they chalked up a run in the second and held South Johnston scoreless.  Midway evened things up in the fourth, at 3-3, with two runs paced by a Wyatt Herring single and a Wyatt Lucas double.  

In the fifth, a Wyatt Lucas double cleared the bases, plating 3, and moving the lead to 6-3.  With the score at 6-4, John Nelson McLamb hit a solo shot to CF.  Wyatt Lucas came through with another RBI single, giving Midway the 8-4 lead.
