WILLIAMSBURG — The Williamsburg Yellow Jackets fell victim to the South Laurel via shutout for the second straight day, this time in a 12-0 loss to the Cardinals.
The Yellow Jackets committed nine errors in the loss and afterward coach John Mountjoy was quick to point out that no team is going to win when it plays as poorly as his did on defense.
“You’re never going to win when you play like we did on defense tonight,” he said. “One thing I talked to my kids about after the game is how to react and recover when that type of thing starts during a game.
“We need to be able to step up and make the next play, but instead we’re letting one turn into two and two into five until we’re sitting here with nine errors on the books,” he added. “This was a better caliber opponent than we have been playing, but it’s baseball and you have to make routine plays no matter who you’re playing against.”
The Cardinals scored a run in the first and three more in the second to jump ahead 4-0 after two innings of play.
Two more runs in the fourth followed by six in the fifth sealed the win for the Cardinals as they improved to 9-3 on the season.
Williamsburg has now dropped three straight after starting the season with nine straight victories, including a 13th Region All ‘A’ championship.

THE WAY IT IS: Football is in the air in the Tri-County
These cool summer days are reminding me of the cool football Friday nights of September and October, and with that said, these cooler temperatures have me in the mood of writing about things to come for our local football teams in the Tri-County.
It’s never too early to talk about what games will be the big ones for the Tri-County high school football fans to watch this upcoming season. I’ve tried to narrow my list down to 10 games, but honestly, it really wasn’t easy to do — but I did manage to do it.
Let’s just say things should be very entertaining, and interesting, for you the fan this season.
