Tide boots shot at MED lead

-A A +A

Trouble making the routine play led to a 7-4 loss in a key Mountain Empire contest.

By Craig Worrell, Sports Editor

Both teams played nice this time around. But only one team played well. A couple of weeks after an ugly scuffle marred a meeting between Fort Chiswell and Galax, the rematch went off without incident Friday at Felts Park, but not without its unsavory moments as eight Maroon Tide errors contributed mightily to a 7-4 Fort Chiswell win in a key Mountain Empire District game. The win leaves the Pioneers (5-1 district) all alone in first place in the league standings with two games against Narrows remaining. Galax (4-2) dropped into a second-place tie with Grayson County.
