Rebels knock off Demons

-A A +A

When they met on April Fool’s Day in Williamstown it was the Demons who defeated the Rebels 7-3.

The two teams squared off again on Tax Day – April 15 – in Owenton. This time it was the Rebels who were pleased with their returns.

Owen County took an early lead and then held on to pick up the 4-2 win. It was the Rebels’ third-straight win at Dunavent Field.

The team is 3-1 at home this year. The loss was just the third Williamstown has suffered on the season.

The win was also worth a trip to the emergency room before the game for Owen County Head Baseball Coach Kevin Webster.

The coach took a line drive off the elbow during batting practice and did not arrive back at the field until the game was in progress.

Despite the pain, Webster was pleased with his team’s effort in picking up the win.

The rest of the week was not as enjoyable for Webster and the Rebels.

The team lost a 31st District contest earlier in the week at Gallatin County and then dropped a pair of games at the Kohl’s Tomahawk Classic at Madison Central. Owen County lost to both Madison Central and Boyd County.

 The Rebels were back on the bus this week in search of their first road win of the season as they played at Henry County Monday. 

They will play at Trimble County Thursday night before traveling to Woodford County over the weekend for three games.

They will also play at Frankfort April 26.
