Area roundup: HCC advances to Region XX final

May 14, 2008


ARNOLD, Md. -- Cory Livengood scattered six hits and struck out six as Hagerstown Community College beat Potomac State College 5-1 in the winners' bracket final of the Region XX Tournament at Anne Arundel Community College on Tuesday.

"It was a very gutty effort from Cory. He really pitched a great game today," HCC coach Scott Jennings said.

Livengood got all the offensive support he would need in the top of the first inning. Matt Greene led off with a single and Jacob Darr drew a one-out walk. With two outs, Mike Knight reached on an error that allowed Greene to score. Alex Stover followed with an RBI single and Knight scored on a wild pitch to give the Hawks a 3-0 advantage.

Charles Johnson hit a solo home run in the seventh inning and Matt Byers drove in a run with a bunt single in the ninth. Johnson finished with two hits.


Potomac State will face Monroe (N.Y.) in an elimination game this morning at 10. The Hawks (37-16-1) will play the winner at 1 p.m. in the championship round.

If HCC loses this afternoon, the final game will be played Thursday at 1.
