    Congrats to CB Aycock as they will be representing the East in the finals. Tough loss for the Lady Trojans, 4 to 1 going into the bottom of the 7th South, Three outs from securing the win. CB Aycocks bats come alive and they defeat South 5 to 4, heart breaker. Good luck to CB Aycock hope you bring the 3

    Yeah I saw Cape Fear has only given up 10 runs in 24 games all season which is incredible. I'm curious how tough the softball is in that area when compared to the Raleigh area.

    I guess both teams are playing for 2nd place though as far as the state championship is concerned. Alexander Central is number one in the country and North Davidson is number 11. I don't see anyway Cape Fear or Middle Creek could beat one of those teams two times.

    Congrats MC, my daughter has played some travel ball with Devin, great kid and family, took some lessons at Double Play training ctr. in Benson. Strength of Cape Fear will be Mary Williams and great coaching.

    Clutch 3 run HR by Devin Wallace of Middle Creek with 2 outs in the bottom of the 7th to tie the game with West Johnston and then to go on and win. I'm gonna call it a 3 run HR because I was there and saw it. It's all over the internet as a 2 run HR so maybe I missed something.

    Anyway it's on to play Cape Fear in the regional finals. For anyone who's seen them play, what are their strengths?

    It's been awhile since I have posted. My biggest takeaway from this season is that chemistry is everything. You can have the best 9 players out in the field and not be able to score a run. Ask the Yankees, they have had the best players for years and if they don't work together as a team, they do not win. I have seen teams this year that should be dominate but do not have the right frame of mind to play as one unit. I'm sure the answer in not easy. It has to start with leadership, from the coaching staff to the players. This is my last year with High School softball, I'm sure I will still get out to a lot of games the remainder of this year and next year. Woman's softball if fantastic.
    Good luck to the remaining teams in the playoffs. Will someone please beat Alexander Central.

    looking at the GNC 4a playoffs I think Clayton may have lucked out and avoided teams from the Southwest Wake Conference in the first round, don't get me wrong they have no easy task traveling to Rockingham to face undefeated Richmond but at least they will not know anyone or anything about them which in my opinion will help them.......

    Well well well, where do we start. The conversations this past week were more than interesting. I think it might be time to re define the purpose of this chat room. It is great that we can have discussions on coaching strategy and the game of softball in general. Examples being field conditions, what team do you thing is better than the other, what baseball gets that softball dose not, just to mention a few. It is not OK to call out specific girls by name. it is wrong because it's just plain mean and classless. It's not fair to that girl and her family that dedicates their time and passion to the game of softball. It's just not right and will not be tolerated on this forum.

    Did not mean to push your button teleman, it was not a negative comment like your comment was not a complaint, just the truth and for all these great out fielders you are refereeing to that are planning to play the next level, wind screens will be on almost all the fields, kinda like the sun during day games.

  • teleman9111 Apr 5, 2014
    Bench Warmer

    I agree it's a very nice facility, and it was just a question not a dig at South Johnston or whoever else uses it, just simply a question. So if you have nothing positive to add keep your negative comments to yourself, not saying, just saying too.......

  • rgwoodall Apr 4, 2014

    Same wind screen at Cleveland, Campbell and several other high schools and universities and by the way it is not black its forest green, South Johnston has one of the nicer facilities in the state for softball. Food for thought, if you keep the ball in front of you you want be look at the screen, not saying just
    saying.

    On a side note I have heard a few complaints about the outfield fence at South Johnston, it seems even the top outfielders have a problem judging it when the sun goes down due to the glare of the lights and the shiny black plastic they have covered it with, my question is if a coach complains about the issue would the school have to remove the covering? Just a question not a complaint by any means.......

    Greater Neuse has been the craziest conference this season you never know which team is gonna show up on any night, Clayton beat Harnett Central last night 6-3 with another strong offensive and defensive game, but lost to South Johnston 12-2 because they couldn't get anything going. It's Going to be very interesting come playoff time.

  • Jumbo Mar 28, 2014

    Cleveland defeated Triton but Triton played horrible on defense which was surprising. They have played a 11 inning and a 10 inning game this week then thier game got moved up from from Friday to Thursday. So they may have been a little sluggish who knows. But regardless when you have 8 errors you don't win ball games stats were on Maxpreps.

    East Wake over Clayton 7-2 on the heels of a great outing by Watkins, Clayton could not get bats going which is normally their strength.....

    Lets talk about the new ratings that just came out. Middle Creek is ranked 11th and 15th. Maybe it's their JV team thats ranked 15th, they are pretty good. Middle Creek will finish in the top 2 before the year is over with. Apex has had some close games. It will be interesting to see if Panther Creek stays in the top 15 after the schedule gets tougher. Green Hope seems much improved, lost to MC 3-0, pretty respectable. As you can tell, all I have seen have been SWAC games. If you have the scoop, please talk about the other conferences.

    Rank, School Pvs Record
    1. Apex 1 5-0
    2. South Granville 2 2-0
    3. South Johnston 5 4-0
    4. Orange 3 2-1
    5. West Johnston 4 3-1
    6. Green Hope 8 3-1 7. Panther Creek NR 4-0-1 8. Garner 9 3-1 9. Wake Forest 11 2-0-1 10. Heritage 12 5-1 11. Middle Creek 13 4-1 12. Clayton 14 3-1 13. Fuquay-Varina 7 3-2 14. Athens Drive 15 4-2 15. Middle Creek NR 3-1

    Green Hope has always been terrible at keeping the scorebook and stats. There have been MANY times an error was scored by one team and not by Green Hope, which allows their players to go 3-3 in games or whatever. I thought it would get better this year with the hopes of a new scorekeeper instead of the one there for the last four years, but no such luck...and let's be serious look who they have played so far. It will be interesting to see how the stats turn out after they face Middle Creek, Fuquay and Apex.

    Now I have a question...I understand 100% we want lots of newspaper press for fastpitch softball and I love it everytime I open the paper and a softball team is being recognized but.......why would there be an article on the Green Hope vs. Cary game on the same night that two of the top teams in this area faced off, Middle Creek vs. Apex. Absurd! Definitely an important game in SWAC and probably will be a very important game when it comes to playoffs. It is always an intense game with the outcome going either way. Maybe its because of the fudged stats that attention is drawn to Green Hope games.
