[SUPER=03-Radford/Randolph-Henry vs. James River; :00]


Randolph-Henry stood in between the Knights and the state title game. Tincher cruised through the first 4 innings. In the 5th, with two runners on, she works out of a jam with a strikeout keeping this one scoreless.
But in the 6th, Tincher ran into trouble. Randolph-Henry's Megan Holt scampers home on the passed ball giving the Lady Statesmen a 1-nothing lead.
The Knights get the run back in the bottom of the inning when Hollie Hall smacks a shot to short scoring Brooke Harlow sending the game to extra innings.

Heavy rains last night and over the last five days have saturated the ground, causing water to seep through the asphalt in some areas of the track. Workers have been out on the track and in the surrounding infield areas trying to remove the water. The qualifying order will be based on Winston Cup owners points. Points leader Sterling Marlin starts on the pole, followed by Jimmie Johnson and then Jeff Gordon. The Pocono 500 is Sunday at 12:30.

He turned left and down he went- into a sinkhole on a Charlotte street.
He wasn't hurt, but the car was damaged.
A water main is under construction in the area- but officials still don't know for sure what caused the sinkhole.
