Cardinals fall short against Jumpertown


Potts Camp dug itself a hole on Tuesday of last week against Jumpertown and almost climbed out.

The host Cardinals fell behind 7-0 but tied the game with seven runs in the bottom of the fifth inning. Jumpertown countered with one run in the sixth and three in the seventh to take an 11-7 win.

“Jumpertown is 10-2 and winning their division,” said Potts Camp Head Coach Jeff King. “I was pleased with our effort. We played real well excepted for some fly balls we missed.

“We’re getting better. I can see signs of that.”

Eric Tucker, who took the pitching loss, led the Cardinals on offense. He had three hits. Getting one hit each were Chad Bowman, Jake Howell and Kurt Sanders.

Saturday, Potts Camp dropped a doubleheader at powerhouse DeSoto Central, 18-0 and 18-0. The Cardinals dropped to 1-9 overall on the season.

Division contests heat up this week. The Cardinals were slated to visit Marshall County rival H.W. Byers on Tuesday. They then invade Blue Mountain Friday at 5 p.m. before hosting Benton County neighbor Hickory Flat on Saturday at 12 noon.
