If the rematch on April 2 is anything like the first round last week, better pack a supper and breakfast before heading over to the high school field to watch Jones County’s two middle schools battle it out in baseball.

When Gray Station hosted Clifton Ridge last Wednesday, the game featured nine pitchers surrendering 20 hits, 21 walks, three hit batters and a balk – and two huge rallies before the Cougars escaped with a 16-11 victory.

Teldrick Ross was the hero for Clifton Ridge, driving in seven runs and scoring five as he went 4-for-4 with a triple, a double, two stolen bases and an intentional walk in five trips to the plate. And he held the Hounds to one single, which was erased when he got the next batter to ground into a double play, in the seventh inning for the save.

The game started out as a Clifton Ridge rout. The Cougars scored three runs in the first and four more in the second to take a 6-1 lead.
