North Stanly claims YVC tourney title

Patience at the plate late in Friday’s Yadkin Valley Conference tournament finals led top-seeded North Stanly to a 5-2 win over Uwharrie Charter.

In the bottom of the fourth, Carson Lowder tied the game for the Comets with a solo inside the park home run.

North scored four runs in the bottom of the sixth drawing five walks scoring on two passed balls and a wild pitch.

The Comets will host either No. 15 Chatham Charter (8-7) or No. 18 North Stokes (12-11) on Friday in the state playoffs.
