SMAC Softball confusing...in a good way this season

As of now, East Rutherford (10-2, 8-2) and R-S Central (12-2, 9-2) baseball are still battling for second and third overall in conference play and for the first 2A seed in the SMAC. Central may have the pitching edge, but East is probably better from an offensive standpoint. Still, both are really good baseball teams as we get into the last 6 games or so of the regular season.

Softball

R-S Central softball (7-1, 5-0) is still on a roll, aside from the 1-0 non-conference loss to Chesnee, the Lady Hilltoppers are undefeated in conference play.

Local Sports:

R-S Central softball (5-1, 4-0) is legit, but they did fall to a very tough Chesnee last week in non-conference play. They will have East Burke this Friday (3/17) and East Rutherford on 3/24.

East Rutherford (2-1, 1-1) lost their first game last week to Burns, but this young group should be interesting to watch. Scoring hasn't been a problem with 19 runs in 3 games.

Chase (3-1, 2-1) has battled to gain a couple of close wins so far, but lost their first game to Crest last week. They host KIngs Mountain on the 21st.
