The Rebels began the week May 9 with a trip to Eminence to take on the Warriors.
Owen County would have little trouble picking up win number 14 as they won 14-3 in six innings. It was the third-straight win where the Rebels were able to close out the game in less than the regulation seven innings.
Owen County would return home on May 10 for a home game against Gallatin County in the NCKC Tournament.
On this night, the Rebels would need extra innings to dispatch of the Wildcats as they won 5-4 in nine innings. The win would extend the winning streak to seven games making it the longest such streak since 2006 when the Rebels run of nine-straight games early in the season.
Saturday, the streak would come to an end as Henry County would defeat Owen County 6-5 in the NCKC Tournament.
The loss would drop Owen County to 15-10 on the season.
The Rebels will look to begin another streak as they travel to Frankfort on Thursday before closing out the regular season on Monday by hosting Villa Madonna.
