After toppling North Wilkes 12-0 last Tuesday, the Forbush Falcons set their sight on the defending 1A State Baseball Champs, West Wilkes.
The Falcons were able to rally in the final two innings to complete the 6-5 win over the Blackhawks.
Grayson Fulp was 1-4 at the plate, but drove home two runs. Teammate Caleb Brawley also had a strong night at the plate, going 2-2, also driving in two RBI.
The Falcons will host the Starmount Rams tomorrow night in a rivalry match for the conference top spot and county bragging rights.
The Forbush Softball squad also had a big game against the Blackhawks last Friday. The Lady Falcons used a five-run fifth inning and coasted to the 8-5 win over West.
Forbush will also host the Starmount Rams on Friday in a battle for control of the top conference spot.
Continuing to roll through its season, Forbush blasted the West Wilkes Blackhawks 11-0. The win improved the Lady Falcons to 5-1 on the season, with their only loss coming from West Stokes.
In that loss, the West Stokes Wildcats were able to edge out the win against the Falcons 4-3. Still, the Falcons are undefeated in conference play, heading into rivalry week. They will host the Rams tonight. Game time is at 7 p.m.
