On April 27 the varsity baseball team hosted the TJ Patriots in a home game where they fell 1-0, in low scoring affair.

Following the loss, the Lancers dropped to an overall record of 5-7  and a  5-6 regional  record.

Despite the devastating loss, there were plenty of bright spots in Wednesday’s home game. One  was Old Dominion commit and Linganore ace, Ben Moore. Moore and the defense started the game out strong with a 1 2 3 first inning consisting of all groundballs. Moore continued to dominate as he threw 2 strikeouts in the 2nd inning, 2 in the third, and 3 in the 4th.

Moore had a masterful pitching performance, but the offense couldn’t produce the runs. Despite that,  sophomore Stephen Curry ripped a double in the 6th inning. The inning ended before the Lancers could bring him home.

The Lancers must now put their focus the two remaining regular season games.

“We can compete with any team when we have the mindset to win. We just gotta work on the small things and we will be the best,”said Curry.

They finish the season with senior night against Tuscarora on April 29. Senior night will be shortly followed by their final regular-season game against South Hagerstown on Monday, May 2.

The Lancers must put everything together as winning will soon mean everything with state playoffs looming.
