The win extends the Lions record to 8-0, and puts them 2 games up in the early SBC league race. Austin Skaggs pitched 6 great innings and was aided by solid Lion defense. The offense was led by Cole Bird with 2 doubles and 3 RBI's, Levi Simpson with 2 hits, Ryan Waters with a triple, and Austin Skaggs with 2 hits. The Lions host Wilmington this Saturday for a non-league double-header.
