King George Foxes shutout Colonial Beach

The King George varsity baseball program is definitely headed in the right direction. For the first time in years, the Foxes are showing signs of dominance in every aspect of the game. After defeating Washington & Lee and Colonial Beach, the Foxes are now 2-0. Results of the Eagles vs. Foxes game on Tuesday were not available due to press deadlines.
After King George Director of Human Resources William Wishard threw out first pitch to celebrate the inaugural debut of the Foxes new baseball field, the partisan Fox fans could only watch in awe. The Foxes made short work of the Drifters by delivering a 15 run shutout.
In the bottom of the first inning, the Foxes took a 6-0 lead that featured hits by Troy Thompson, Dylan Dombrowkas and Collin Blake. After picking up a run in the second inning, Theo Klopsis blew the game wide open in the third inning with the ballpark’s first ever three-run homerun.
The Foxes would score two more runs in the fourth inning. The Foxes’ offense resulted in 11 hits, while the Drifters finished with three hits. In four innings of shutout work, Fox senior Ethan Slemp produced seven strikeouts, one walk and gave up three hits. Damion Carroll completed the Foxes’ mound duties with three strikeouts to retired the side, and win the game.

Drifters beat Foxes on Farinet's 3 pointer at the Buzzer

Dylan Farinet hit a three-pointer as time expired to lift Colonial Beach over King George 66-63. Farinet's heroics capped a 14-1 run to end the game, where the Drifters scored 34 points in the fourth quarter. Down 49-32 going into the fourth quarter, the Beach slowly began to chip away at the Foxes. With the Foxes ahead, 54-44 with 3 minutes to play, the Drifters started their full-court-pressure. Led by Farinet, Travis Cundiff, Randy Ruczynski and Paul Roberson, the home team was able to turn the Foxes over on numerous occasions.
The Drifters got their first lead of the game at 63-62, with just 30 seconds left in the game. D.J. Lewis, who led all scorers with 29 points, was fouled with 8 seconds left. He hit one of two free throws to tie the game.
Farinet then took the inbounds pass, beat a double team down the sideline, went by one more defender, and pulled up for the winning shot. As the shot went through the nets, the crowd went crazy, emptying onto the floor, and swarming the senior guard.
Farinet led the Drifters with 25 points. Cundiff had 18 points. Ruczynski, Roberson, and junior Mike Jackson scored six points apiece.
Colonial Beach improves to 4-6 on the season with the win. The Drifters will host Washington and Lee in a Northern Neck District game Tuesday.
