Kavaliers drop road game to Fuqua

Published 9:13 pm Monday, May 2, 2016

The Kenston Forest School baseball team took an early lead, fell behind and then tried to rally late against host Fuqua School on Monday, but the Kavaliers ultimately fell 12-5.

“We’re a young team, still got a lot of learning to do,” KF coach Scott Adkins said. “They tried to turn it on at the end of the game and come back, but it was a little too late.”

The Kavaliers took a 2-0 lead to start the game, but the Falcons responded in the bottom of the first with three runs, then gradually built up to a 12-3 lead during the game. Kenston Forest began a rally in the top of the seventh but could only generate two runs.

Sophomore Chance Whitehead was a bright spot for the Kavaliers at the catcher position, throwing two people out. Senior Dillon Dunn played through an injury on his leg, going 1-for-3 with a walk on offense and pitching three innings, throwing two strikeouts.
