Hawks in do-or-die spot

WYE MILLS, Md. -- Hagerstown Community College's bid to return to the district tournament will hinge on winning two games today in the Region XX tournament.

HCC, the defending champion, lost in the opener to rival Potomac State 11-2. The Hawks (39-16) stayed alive with a 6-1 victory over Chesapeake.

The Hawks must defeat Potomac State twice today, with the first game at 11 a.m., in order to gain a trip to the Eastern District tournament in New York on Saturday. HCC and Potomac have met in the Region XX finals six of the last seven years, including last season when HCC won the title.


Potomac roughed up HCC pitching for 16 hits and held a 3-2 lead before erupting for four runs in the third inning.

Charles Johnson provided the only offense for the Hawks with a two-run home run in the second inning.

Kyle Briggs came through with a nifty four-hitter in the victory over Chesapeake for his ninth win of the season.

Johnson had three hits and an RBI to lead an 11-hit attack, and Josh Barrett also had three hits, including a seventh-inning solo home run. Zach Smith also had two hits.
