Unaka’s quest to come up with a base hit against University High was like searching to find a clean shaven Phil, Willie, Jace and Sy Robinson.
It wasn’t going to happen no matter how hard the Rangers tried.
However, they did manage to find success just like the four from Duck Dynasty did — and it earned them a berth into Monday’s regional tournament. The Rangers scored a throwing error in the eighth inning to knock off the Junior Bucs 1-0 following UH’s 13-3 loss to North Greene in the first contest.
Due to scheduling conflicts, Saturday’s championship between the Rangers and Huskies was called off — leaving Unaka with a trip to Cosby for Monday’s regional semifinals. The game will be held at Newport’s City Park, beginning at 5:30 p.m.
