Big third inning gives Garner big win


Garner sent 11 hitters to the plate and scored six runs to break open a one-run game as the Trojans blasted Smithfield-Selma 10-4 on Thursday night at Trojan Park.

SSS (4-6, 0-3) scored in their opening at bat on back to back doubles from TJ Brown and Ben Youngblood, as they took a 1-0 lead after half of an inning.

Garner (4-4, 2-2) answered right back in the bottom of the inning with three, two-out hits. Alec Hulmes, CJ Schmitt and Will Norris singled in succession as Norris collected his first RBI of the year to knot the game at one after an inning of play.

The Trojans took their first lead of the game in the bottom of the second as Brett Walters collected the first of his three hits as he singled and advanced to second and third on a throwing error by Brown, the Spartan catcher. Walters came around to score on the Colin Perry fielder's choice.

SSS retook the lead in the top of the third with a two-run home run from Tyler Castleburry. That lead didn't last long.

In the bottom of the inning, the Trojans sent 11 hitters to the plate as the first three reached and Connor Torruella scored on a wild pitch to tie the game.

Soccer sweeps SSS

Garner came out ready to play Wednesday night. After a confidence boosting campaign against Knightdale in which the lady Trojans scored seven goals, momentum was on their side.

Garner opened up the game with high energy and quick play. Garner moved the ball around effectively creating numerous scoring opportunities. The Trojans were unable to score in the first half, but forced Smithfield-Selma's goalie to 12 saves.

Garner's defense only allowed one shot on goal in the first half, and only two shots on goal total for the game. The defense was very organized and aggressive. Any time it looked like SSS was transitioning forward, the Garner fullbacks were able to win the ball back and regain possession for their teammates.

The second half was much of the same as the first, only this time with goals. An adjustment to move Kari Skillman from defense to forward proved beneficial as the she was able to connect off a corner kick from Gabi Dugal to open up the scoring midway through the second half.

Michelle Roth followed about 10 minutes later with a brilliant header off another Dugal corner kick. The final goal started from the back where Sarah Izzell won possession, was able to get free from her defender and find Heather Wilfong checking to the ball. Wilfong turned toward the middle and played a diagonal through ball to Amber Eberhard who finished with composure.

Garner won the game 3-0, providing a clean slate for the first time this season. Garner had 17 shots, 4 corners, and 5 fouls. SSS had 2 shots, 0 corners, and 4 fouls.

For the second consecutive night, the JV team defeated SSS, tonight they blasted the Spartans 5-0.

The varsity returns to action when they travel to Southeast Raleigh on Monday at 6:00.

Varsity Soccer Update

Last week:

at West Johnston: Lost 5-0. Although the score was lopsided, the game was not. The Trojans came out to a quick start and dominated the first 10 minutes of the game. After Michelle Roth nearly scored after dribbling between multiple defenders, Garner gave up their first goal in transition the other way. West Johnston finished the half with a 2-0 lead. Garner came out explosive in the second half keeping possession and moving the ball around well, however, it was West Johnston who was able to finish. After playing a more offensive strategy, Garner left gaps open defensively which were exploited by the opposition. Garner finished the game scoreless.

Clayton: Tie 2-2. Garner took control of the first half, but couldn't find the back of the net until Kaity Fulkerson was able to put in a deflection from Amber Eberhard's multiple shots. Gabi Dugal hit the crossbar from 20-yards out, but was still looking for her first goal of the season. Garner was not forced to make a single save in the first half, however Clayton did hit the side post with 30 seconds left in the half. The beginning of the second half belonged to the Comets. Garner struggled to get the ball out of their own half allowing Clayton to slowly gain confidence. As the game progressed, the pace of play got more exciting. Clayton found the equalizer in the second half to send the game into overtime. In the first overtime, Garner scored early. With 3 minutes left in the second overtime, Clayton was able to tie the game for the final score to be 2-2.

at Knightdale: Won 7-2. Garner got revenge on the Knights after last years debacle. Knightdale controlled the game early, but after Eberhard finished from a breakaway, Garner got their rhythm. The score at halftime was 3-1 in Garner's advantage. The final score was 7-2. Eberhard scored four goals, Heather McClung scored one, Fulkerson scored one and Kari Skillman added the final goal. Michelle Roth assisted on three of the goals, Dugal had one assist, and McKenzie Bennett added an assist.

Baseball earns first road win over Knightdale


Garner used a five-run third inning and held off a late Knightdale rally to earn their first conference win of the season with a 8-4 road win on Tuesday night.

In the opening inning Garner (3-4, 1-2) struck first with a trio of runs. Brandon Tant led off with a single to right and after Taylor Stephens beat out a bunt the Trojans had two on with no outs. Alec Hulmes came to the plate and on the first pitch he saw, the launched the ball over the wall in right for an early 3-0 lead for the men of Troy.

Knightdale (4-2, 2-1) couldn't solve the puzzle that was Will Norris (W 2-2) as the senior went six innings to earn the win for the Trojans.

Still leading by three, Garner got back on the board in the third inning. With one out, Hulmes singled ahead of CJ Schmitt who belted a two-strike pitch over the wall in left for his second homer of the season and a 4-0 Trojan lead.

But, that wasn't all that Garner would get in the third. Colin Perry, Connor Torruella, and Brett Walters walked to load the bases with two outs. Matt Hawley followed and also drew a free pass to bring home Perry and make it 5-0. The Trojans finished off their scoring when Tant delivered a two-run bloop single to center to plate Walters and Hawley and after three it was 8-0 Garner.

The Knights scored a pair of runs in both the third and fourth off Norris who walked only one and struck out six. Hulmes came in and got the final three outs to preserve the win for the Trojans.

Garner will be back in action on Thursday night when they host Smithfield-Selma at Trojan Park, first pitch is slated for 7:00.

Defense kills Trojans in loss to Clayton


Clayton senior Jason Creay (W 2-0), a North Carolina State committ, limited Garner to just one hit while striking out four as the Comets blanked the Trojans 11-0 on Friday night at Trojan Park.

Clayton (7-3, 3-0) scored twice in the second off Danny Shortt (L 1-1), the Garner (2-4, 0-2) staring pitcher. With the bases loaded and one out, Matt Reid walked to bring home a run. It looked like Garner would be out of the inning with only some damage done as Shortt got a comebacker and went home for the second out of the inning and the relay throw to first rolled past the first basemen allowing the second Comet run to score.

Garner trailed by only two after the first three innings, but the Trojans missed a couple of scoring chances in the first and third after the leadoff hitter reached, Garner was unable to move the runner to second on a failed bunt which allowed Clayton to get out of the inning.

In the fourth, Clayton sent nine hitters to the plate scoring five runs (all unearned) in the fourth as Garner committed six of their eight errors in the fourth inning.

Clayton added a pair of runs in the sixth and three in the seventh to take the 11-0 win over Garner.

Errors cost Trojans in loss at West Johnston


Garner committed a season high five errors including three in one inning as West Johnston defeated the Trojans 6-4 on Tuesday night at Wildcat park.

West Johnston ( 5-2, 1-0) struck first off Trojan starter, Will Norris in the second inning with four runs. With one out, Thomas Hill reached on the first error of the inning, Alex Espada followed with an infield single. Garner looked to be out of the inning as Norris struck out Kodi Whitley, but a walk to Austin Pittman loaded the bases. With the bases loaded, Adam Morrison delivered an infield single to score a run. After two more errors and a walk, the Wildcats had batted around and led 4-0, however, Norris pitched himself out of the jam and left the bases loaded.

Garner (2-3, 0-1) answered right back in the top of the third. With two out, Brandon Tant and Taylor Stephens had back to back singles. Alec Hulmes followed the singles with a home run over the wall in left and pulled the Trojans back to within one at 4-3. Garner put two more runners on as CJ Schmitt singled and Norris reached on an error, but a groundout ended the threat of anymore runs for the Trojans.

After a couple of scoreless innings, Garner tied the score in the top of the fifth as Stephens doubled to begin the frame. However it looked like the Trojans couldn't capitalize as the next two hitters struck out and flew out. But, Norris walked and Connor Torruella was hit by a pitch to load the bases for Brett Walters who reached on an error allowing Stephens to score and knot the game at four.

West Johnston struck back in the bottom of the inning to regain the lead. With one out, Parrish doubled to left field and Aaron McGee reached on an error putting runners at the corners with one out.

Varsity Soccer Update

Last Week:

Game 1: Garner played at Wake Forest-Rolesville. We were very organized defensively, only allowing 1 goal the entire game. The Cougar goal keeper made 7 saves in order to keep the Trojans scoreless. We played well as a team, moving the ball quickly, maintaining possession, and creating scoring opportunities.

Game 2: Home against Cary. Lost 4-0.

This week:

Game 3: Home against Wilson Fike. The Trojans started off slow allowing a goal in the first 15 minutes, but after adjustments were made, the game got exciting. The rest of the first half was back and forth when Amber Eberhard played the ball into the middle where Heather Wilfong got into position to tie the game up. The second half belonged to Garner. With possession time advantage going to Garner, so did scoring opportunities. The Wilson Fike keeper was able to make 3 breakaway saves in order to keep the game tied at 1 -1. The Garner defense played extremely well keeping the ball on the Fike side for most of the second half. The game ended with a back and forth frenzy only to leave both sides wondering what could have happened if overtime could be played.

Game 4: Away against Cary. In a rainy atmosphere, the Trojans took on the Mustangs of Middle Creek. With the field being wet, the game was a little sloppy. Two yellow cards were issued out, one for each team. Garner took a first half lead of 1-0 when Gabi Dugal played a diagonal through pass to Eberhard who found herself one on one with the goal keeper. Eberhard faked the goal keep left and went around her to the right to make a tap in goal. The second half brought on more rain and worse field conditions. As puddles emerged throughout the field, the players kept on. Middle Creek tied the game with a shot from 18 yards out that went into the left side netting midway through the second half. Garner responded shortly after when sophomore Micaela Kymer played a free kick into the penalty box. Taylor King got the first touch on it, but it was Heather Wilfong who got the golden touch to put Garner ahead 2-1. After numerous saves by goalkeeper Francheska Keke, Garner was able to withstand the Middle Creek pressure to win 2-1.

Carroll lifts Garner past Cary


Ashley Carroll slammed a pair of home runs and drove in seven runs as Garner's Varsity Softball team defeated Cary 15-2 on Wednesday night to earn their second win in as many days.

Cary (0-5) struck first in the bottom of the opening frame off Lady Trojan starter Lauren Marbury. With one out, Casey Brawn reached and moved to second on an error and later came around to score on a fielder's choice.

Garner (3-1) would answer two innings later with two out. Raven Smith singled and stole second and third ahead of Mary-Scott Powell who reached on the first of four Cary errors to plate Smith and tie the ball game. Carroll came to the plate and promptly sent a 1-0 pitch over the wall in left centerfield giving Garner a 3-1 lead.

After Garner added another run in the fourth inning to go up 4-1, Cary answered with a run on a Claire Ruddiman single which made it 4-2 after four innings of play.

In the fifth, the Trojans scored again when Carroll collected her third RBI of the game on a ground out which brought Smith in to score and Powell scored in the same inning on another Lady Imp error.

The sixth inning is where things came unglued for Cary. With two on and two outs, Garner loaded the bases for Powell who delivered a two-run single. Amanda Hulmes got her first at bat of the night and delivered a single to score Powell and after six, Garner had a 10-2 lead.

In their final at bat, the Trojans made their swings count as Shea Barbour delivered a single to plate Courtney Barbour. Later in the frame, Garner loaded the bases for Carroll who, on a 2-2 pitch hammered it over the wall in center for a grand-slam. It was her second homer of the game and third of the season.

Christina Gower came on in relief of Marbury and pitched the final three innings to earn the save as Garner defeated Cary 15-2.

The Lady Trojans return to action on Tuesday night when they travel to West Johnston for a 7:00 first pitch.

With one out and Norris standing at first with a lead off walk moved to second base when Connor Torruella reached on an error.
