Lynn Camp played an astounding game against Knox Central, played on their home field, on Friday. Although a steady effort was given from the Lynn Camp players, they fell to Knox Central 2-4.

Lynn Camp led against the Panthers until the top of the fourth when juniors Jaxon Stewart and Casey Patterson for Knox Central scored runs to tie the game.

Sophomore’s Nathan Garlen and Dylan Guinn scored two runs for Lynn Camp in the second, but Knox Central stepped up to the plate in the fourth and prevented Lynn Camp from scoring again.

The tie was broken by Knox Central’s freshman, Donavan Arthur. The tie-breaker made the score 2-3 and began the next half.

KC scored again in the sixth, but Lynn Camp put up a gallant fight. Lynn Camp sophomore Caleb Gray got Seth Hill out while Knox Central’s Drew Mills stole second.  With just one out left, Mills scored for the Panther’s to make the final score of 4-2.

While Knox Central got their tenth win of the season against Lynn Camp, hopefully they will continue the streak in their home game against Harlan County Tuesday.

Lynn Camp gave a steady effort against Knox Central, but it was not enough to break their back-to-back losing streak. If the Wildcat’s continue to fight in the games to come, they may get another win for the season.
