FROM STAFF REPORTSMarch 8, 2014 

Central blasted Russellville 13-4, but the error bug proved too much to overcome in an 8-6 loss to Rehobeth.

Weston Dawson picked up his second win of the season in Game 1.

Despite committing five errors and being down 8-0, the Red Devils rallied for six runs in the sixth inning of Game 2. They had a chance to tie the game with runners on second and third and the top of the lineup due, but the comeback ran out of steam.Satuday at Central
