South Boston in O-Zone title game

SoVaNow.com / July 31, 2014
South Boston’s O-Zone all-stars battled Christiansburg last night to settle the state title.

Christiansburg capitalized on a two-run walk-off homer in the seventh inning, propelling that all-star squad into the finals of last night’s state O-Zone state tournament. Christiansburg downed Madison Heights, 12-10. Both of those teams had one loss.

South Boston had one loss heading into the O-Zone finale.

The local all-stars stayed in contention with a 10-5 win over Madison Heights on Monday. The locals scored one run in the first, two in the third, four in the fifth and three in the sixth.

South Boston had singles from Thomas Lee, Zack Lowery and Trey Mahan in the fifth inning, but the big blow was a three-run homer from Harrison Culpepper, who proved to be a key power source in this tournament.

Lee had two singles, a walk and scored three runs. Jared Dawson cracked two singles, drew a walk and scored two runs. Zack Lowery walked twice, singled and scored twice.

Culpepper was hit by a pitch, homered and singled, with a run scored. Ali Ferrell walked three times and scored a run. Colby Hancock walked and scored.

Earlier, South Boston got a state record-setting power surge from Culpepper, who slammed three homers to spark a 15-8 win over Rustburg on Sunday.

South Boston has been prolific offensively in this tournament. Sunday’s surge was part of that narrative, as the locals scored three runs in the first, six in the second, two in the third, and four in the fifth.
