St. Stephens couldnâ€™t have scripted a better ending.
Trailing 6-0 to Newton-Conover, the Indiansâ€™ baseball team rallied to score 12 runs, including a dramatic two-run homer by center fielder Phillip Carroll in the sixth inning. The Indians (6-13) bounced back from a 7-2 loss Monday to Hickory.
â€śWe came out flat in the first side out,â€ť said Indiansâ€™ coach Chip Watts. â€śOur kids responded well. We knew we had to chip at it a little bit at a time, and we wouldnâ€™t get it all back in one inning. Our kids stayed with the course and with the game plan.â€ť
