- 5A powerhouses square off for State Championship trip –
The Boiling Springs Bulldogs traveled to Rock Hill Wednesday night to take on the Trojans of Northwestern. The Bulldogs would need two wins to punch their ticket to the state championship series. Boiling Springs (25-4) came into tonight’s game coming off a 7-4 win over the Westside Rams. Northwestern (27-4) got a day off after defeating Westside 10-0 on Monday and moving to 2-0 in the Upper State tournament. 89 degrees and plentiful sunshine set the scene for tonight’s game between these two clubs. The 5:00 start time hampered the crowd at first, but as the 5 o’clock work release bell rang, the stands began to fill up and midway through the first, both sides were filled to capacity. The Trojans are traditionally tough to beat in the friendly confines they call the “pines”, however the battle-tested Bulldogs from Boiling Springs would not make it easy on them.
