PRESTONSBURG The third time proved to be the charm for Beaver Creek Friday evening. After splitting two games in a pair of prior meetings in the 15-16-Year-Olds District Seven Tournament, Beaver Creek was looking to earn a deciding game three win and a trip to the State Tournament. Beaver Creek did just that, defeating Knott County 8-4. Outstanding pitching from hurler Austin Cook held Knott County scoreless through six innings of play before the team from Hindman came through with four runs in the top half of the seventh.
Beaver Creek got on the board in the bottom half of the second inning. Tyler Cole and Junior Handshoe came through with an RBI each to put Beaver Creek in front 2-0 heading into the third inning. Neither team could produce much offense in the third inning as the score remained 2-0.
Beaver Creek went on to blow the game open in the fourth inning. Dakota Wilson reached on an error, followed by a sharp single from Austin Barnett. A base hit from Tyler Cole allowed Wilson to score and pushed Beaver Creek ahead 3-0. Austin Prater delivered a triple to plate Barnett and Cole, lifting Beaver Creek to a 5-0 lead at the end of the fourth inning.
Josh Handshoe and Cameron Hamilton both collected hits in a three-run fifth inning for the Beaver Creek team. Knott County pitching walked in two Beaver Creek runs in the fifth inning. Beaver Creek led 8-0 after five innings and would never look back. Knott County came up with four runs in the seventh inning, but it was too late as Beaver Creek came away with an 8-4 win and the 2010 District Seven title.
The Beaver Creek 15-16-Year-Olds All-Star team is made up of the following players: Tyler Cole, Junior Handshoe, Austin Prater, Gage Parsons, Josh Handshoe, Austin Cook, Cameron Hamilton, Dakota Wilson, Austin Barnett and Daniel Belcher. Coaches are Neil Allen and Brian Handshoe.
