Uniontown Area High School
Ringgold High School
Ringgold hosted Uniontown on Friday afternoon in an important Section 3-4A game. The Rams could potentially clinch a playoff berth with the victory.
Ringgold grabbed an early lead, scoring on Jake Mayer’s sacrifice fly to go ahead 1-0 in the second inning.
The score would remain until the fifth inning when the Rams were able to add to their total. Matt Morgan would single to center field, driving in two runs, to give the Rams a 3-0 lead.
Uniontown would add a run in the top of the seventh, but it wasn’t enough, as Ringgold held on for the victory.
Bo Haines earned the win on the mound. He went five innings, allowing zero runs and only one hit, while striking out four.
With the win, Ringgold improves to 11-2 (7-2) on the year and clinches a playoff berth for the first time since 2005. The victory also sets up next week’s battles with section front-runners, Belle Vernon and South Park. The Rams will take on the Leopards on Monday, May 1 at 7pm.
