“I believe we played great,” Williams said. “Our defense was solid. We ran bases well and took advantage of some errors they made. We are going to piece some more things together and have ourselves a solid team.”

Nansemond River will take on Grassfield on the road, while King’s Fork will take on Oscar Smith High School on the road, Thursday. Both games are at 5:30 p.m. Games could be rescheduled due to weather.
