H.S. BASEBALL: Madison Southern tops Boyle County, 1-0

BEREA — Outstanding pitching by Griffen Norris and a clutch hit from Devin Vanover helped Madison Southern pick up a hard-fought victory Wednesday in Berea over a Top 25 team.

Vanover ripped a walk-off double in the seventh as the Eagles (1-2) topped Boyle County, 1-0. Norris earned the complete-game victory for Southern.

“It was a great game,” Southern coach Dusty Hon said. “This was big for us. It’s a good momentum builder.”

After falling twice on Saturday at home in the season openers, Southern got a very impressive performance from Norris. The junior allowed just two hits and three walks and had 11 strikeouts.

“Griffen was phenomenal,” Hon said.

Going into the seventh inning, the Eagles had just one hit, but they found a way to push across a run. Kendan Angel reached on a dropped third strike, then moved to second on an error.

Vanover brought him home with a shot off the bottom of the left-field fence.

Lukas Owens had the only other hit for Southern.

The Eagles are set to return to action today at home against Danville.
