Fayetteville loses close contest with Clay-Central

SHARE NOW

FAYETTEVILLE, Ala. – Head Coach Matt Collier of the Fayetteville Wolves’ baseball team certainly can hang up his hat each night knowing that his team gives maximum effort, no matter who the competition is.

The Wolves hosted the Clay-Central Volunteers, a Class 5A power, on Wednesday night and were right in the ball game all the way to the end.

The Vols started in the second inning by singling in a run, but the Wolves came back to tie things at one before surrendering the lead in the next inning for a 2-1 score in favor of Clay-Central.

One of the brightest spots for Coach Collier was Brady Butler who had control of the mound for all seven innings. He gave up only four runs on five hits and captured four strikeouts of his own.

Fayetteville’s Kai Tubbs had a great game from the plate as he went 2-3 to lead the Wolves in hitting. Fayetteville actually outhit the Volunteers six to five but could not get the right hit at the right time and lost the contest 4-1 for the final.

Coach Collier said, “I am very proud of our baseball team. We competed hard, and how can you not pay attention to what Brady Butler did on the mound for us. He was great. We just need to get the hits at the right time.”

After a long night of baseball, probably the home run of the day belonged to Assistant Coach Josh Podoris as he relished in a bear hug from his son Carter, who was waiting with baited breath to see him.

The Wolves will travel to Sylacauga to take on the Aggies on Friday, weather permitting of course. You can listen to the call on the Aggie Sports Network on MIX 106.5 with Jeremy Law at 6:30 p.m.
