VA. -- It is very rare that a high school team will play a 1-0 game all year long, but it is almost impossible to play two 1-0 games in back to back days, but that is exactly what Lawrence Co.

PLAYER COMMENT

“... All I was trying to do was was throw strikes and trust my defense they have been good all year and I have faith in them. I knew the offense would score even though it was only one run I trust those guys to get the job done. I knew Kade would close it out.”
