Lady Mohawks Fall, Baseball Tribe Advances in Regionals
The Lady Mohawks fell to Melbourne 8-0 in their first round regional tournament game Monday at Harrison. Meanwhile, the baseball Mohawks knocked off Yellville 6-4 to advance to the second round--and earn themselves a spot in the state tourney.
The remaining three games also went to members of the 3A-3, setting up today's regional semi-finals among four teams very familiar with each other.
The Harrisburg Hornets beat Melbourne 7-3, and took on the Tribe at noon. Harrisburg got the better of the Mohawks, notching a 9-8 win.
In the lower half of the bracket, the Rivercrest Colts had two pitchers combine for a no-hitter, as they beat Bergman 10-0 and the Manila Lions got a no-hitter from Brady Jones as they beat Flippin 6-1.
In the girls bracket the Lady Colts advanced with a no-hitter by Micalah Beall, while Harrisburg beat Flippin and Mt View beat Corning 7-6 in nine innings.
The state tournament gets underway Thursday at Searcy and is hosted by Harding Academy.
The Mohawks will play at either 5 p.m. or 7:30 based on where they finish in the third-fourth place game at Harrison. Full details will be posted Wednesday.
