Price King? started at pitcher for Ashley, and pitched out of some tough spots, picking up 5 strikeouts along the way. The Screaming Eagles had opportunities to put more runs on the board, as well as get out of some defensive jams, but just couldn't get the hits or big plays when they were needed. Jordan Fentress? and Evan Laverick? had the only hits for Ashley, who falls to 7-5 overall, sporting a 3-3 conference record. The Eagles turn around and play at Pender High tomorrow, following the junior varsity game just before that.
