Munford had a chance sew up the number one seed in next month’s district tournament with a two-game sweep of Brighton.
It didn’t happen, though.
Brighton won the first game Monday and Munford won game two on Tuesday. That means Munford (18-7 overall, 6-2 District 14-AAA) and Brighton (11-11, 4-2) would finish tied atop the regular season standings if Brighton beats Covington twice next Monday and Tuesday. Munford’s district schedule is complete.
In game one, Brighton’s offense exploded for 17 hits on the way to an 11-4 win.
Andrew Davis was 4 for 5 with a double and Luke Perkins was was 3 for 4 with four RBIs. Bennett Stutts and M.J. Parimore each had two hits and Case Maxwell doubled as the Cardinal offense rolled.
Colton Bryant was dominant on the mound. He struck out nine over six innings, allowing just two hits.
Tuesday’s game in Munford was a different story.
Garrett McKinney struck out eight and held Brighton to just a pair of hits in a 7-2 Munford victory.
Noah Lowry led Munford’s offense with a single and a double and Owen Geiger drove in two runs.
Davis struck out five and allowed five hits over five innings to take the loss.
