Luckily, the Lions have plenty of good ones themselves.</p> <p> Lewisville went on the road Tuesday to face second-ranked Lamar. They faced a great pitcher in Daniel Galloway, but had one of their own on the mound in Drew Colvin and scratched out a pair of late runs to take a 2-1 victory.</p> <p> &ldquo;It was a classic pitcher&rsquo;s duel,&rdquo; said Lions Coach Billy Keels.</p> Autry's rise no surprise to former coach http://www.onlinechester.com/content/autrys-rise-no-surprise-former-coach <p> Chester High graduate Trent Autry has gotten a lot of attention lately for his play at Florence Darlington Tech, but his former coach doesn&rsquo;t understand why anybody is surprised.</p> <p> &ldquo;I don&rsquo;t see it as a surprise at all that he&rsquo;s pitching so well,&rdquo; said Chester High Baseball Coach Chris Powell, who coach Autry during his senior season. &ldquo;He has a such a competitive nature. He gets on the mound and wants the ball in his hands. He never wanted to give the ball up and that&rsquo;s a good thing.&rdquo;</p> Thomas almost perfect...again http://www.onlinechester.com/content/thomas-almost-perfectagain <p> To say that Lewisville&rsquo;s Chloe Thomas has been sharp in region play would be an understatement.</p> <p> The junior hurler for the Lady Lions has now pitched two region contests and has pitched two no-hitters in those games, with her latest victim being Lamar Tuesday. The game was never close, with Lewisville leading 6-0 after two innings and 8-0 after three on the way to 10-0 victory in five innings.</p> Cyclones win big at Fairfield Central http://www.onlinechester.com/content/cyclones-win-big-fairfield-central <p> The Chester baseball team has played a lot of close games this season&hellip;or at least it had until Tuesday.</p> <p> The Cyclones went on the road and got a blowout over Fairfield Central, improving their region record to 2-1 with a 19-2 runaway in five innings.</p> <p> Oddly, the early action didn&rsquo;t indicate the blowout that was to come. Chester had one base runner in the first, that being Anthony McCullough who led off with a single, but he was cut down as part of a double play and Chester failed to plate a run.</p> Lady Cycs score 20 in rout of Camden http://www.onlinechester.com/content/lady-cycs-score-20-rout-camden <p> Chester Softball Coach Chris Dodson didn&rsquo;t have much to say after his team&rsquo;s game with Camden on Friday. The results pretty much spoke for themselves.</p> <p> &ldquo;We just played a good game tonight,&rdquo; Dodson said.</p> <p> Chester got outstanding performances at the plate, in the field and on the mound in a 20-2 rout of Camden that ended after five innings on the 10-run mercy rule.</p> Keels no-hits Union County http://www.onlinechester.com/content/keels-no-hits-union-county <p> The Lewisville Lions appear ready for a big week of region baseball.</p> <p> In the final warm-up ahead of a week that will see them play the number one and number two ranked teams in Class A, Lewisville blew out AAAA Union County 10-0 in five innings on Saturday afternoon.</p> <p> Lewisville overwhelmed the visitors in every way. Senior Trey Keels threw a no-hitter, struck out six and did not issue a single walk. He was one error away from a perfect game. Obviously, several hitters contributed to the 10-run output, with Braxton Elms leading the way with a pair of hits.</p> Blanchett tosses a gem, but Cycs lose close one http://www.onlinechester.com/content/blanchett-tosses-gem-cycs-lose-close-one <p> Pitch for pitch and play for play, the Chester baseball team matched a ranked Camden squad on Friday&hellip;except for in the fourth inning.</p> <p> The game turned into a big-time pitcher&rsquo;s duel between Chester&rsquo;s Luke Blanchett and Camden&rsquo;s Devin Beckley, but the top-five ranked Bulldogs managed to scratch out a couple of runs in the fourth and escape with a 2-0 win.</p> Lady Lions win in extra innings http://www.onlinechester.com/content/lady-lions-win-extra-innings <p> Going into last Thursday, the Lewisville softball team had not played a single, seven-inning game this season. They still haven&rsquo;t.</p> <p> After winning its first three games in five or six innings on the 10-run rule, the Lady Lions were finally tested Thursday against AAA Indian Land. It went to extra innings, but Lewisville got a walk-off hit to take an 11-10 victory.</p>
