Baseball Holds Pender Scoreless in Home Opener


The Ashley baseball team was back at it again tonight in some frigid weather for our first home game against Pender HS.  Noah Borntrager got the nod on the bump tonight, and was very effective for 5 innings, allowing only 1 hit, a single in the 2nd inning.  The Eagles struck first in the opening inning, as Cole Slocum scored on an RBI double off the bat of Donovan Francis.  That was all the run support we would need, as Noah dominated on the mound, and was relieved by sophomore Trevor Price, who finished out the game.  Donovan went 2-3 for the Eagles, and had the only extra base hit in the game.  Cole Slocum, Dakota Perryman and Jesse Goyne also added singles.  The Eagles are now 2-0, and return to the field for what is forecast to be another chilly game against West Carteret, first pitch at 5:00.
