February 22, 2024

The Woodland Wildcats lost a true pitchers’ duel Thursday afternoon at the Pickens High School Mountain Classic, falling 1-0 to the Franklin County Lions.

Austin Daves of Woodland and Caden Cawthon of Franklin County both tossed complete game gems, but it was Cowthon who received the single run of support.

The game was a scoreless battle until the Lions pushed across a run in the bottom of the sixth on an infield error and an RBI single.

Connor Stermer, Jake Clowers, and Cam Williams had the only Woodland hits.

Daves worked all six innings on the mound for the Wildcats. He allowed just one unearned run on two hits and two walks while striking out five.

Franklin’s Cawthon pitched all seven innings scattering three hits with no walks and three strikeouts.

The Lions improved to 5-0.
