— South Robeson came to get revenge for last week’s 9-0 non-conference loss to the Knights, and they got it on Wednesday with a 6-5 win in eight innings.
West Bladen fell to 1-2 on the young season.
The Knights found themselves trailing 4-0 in the second inning and 5-2 in the fourth, but managed to pull within 5-4 in the fifth inning before knotting the game in the bottom of the seventh on an RBI single by Trent West.
But the Mustangs pushed across a run in the top of the eighth on a fielder’s choice, error, single and another fielder’s choice.
The Knights went 1-2-3 in the bottom of the frame.
