I saw the games listed under the schedule for Hoke's 2012 summer team on their GameChanger page. Here's the link. The schedule and all their games and stats for the season are entered by head coach Mike Ray. If you look at the full schedule and the first three games, under "Type" is has Thursday's game listed as "Non-League" and Monday's as "League" games. I didn't really understand it either, since both teams are in the Southwest Division. I was just curious because if it comes down to the end of the season and UP finds themselves in the race for one of the division's playoff spots, they would benefit more from having two division wins over Hoke, rather than a win and tie.
Umm, I'm pretty sure the reason why the JV games have a time limit is because they're required to have both games including the varsity completed by darkness due to not being able to use or turn on the field/stadium lights for a non-school event during the summer months. That's Moore County Schools policy (I guess to save $$$) and it's county-wide, affecting Union Pines and North Moore as well. So if you're going to blame someone, blame the the school system, not the coaches. That's the reason why all the county teams have start times of 4 and 6 p.m. for summer league games and everyone else in the division is 5 and 7 p.m. (Although I have seen other schools around the area without any restrictions place time and # of innings limits for their JV teams as well)
Just curious, I saw where Union Pines and Hoke County played last Thursday in Raeford and UP won 11-8, but it was listed as a non-division game on the schedule. Why were the two 5 inning games on Monday at UP (resulting in a win and tie in CCSSL division games) counted instead of UP picking up two division wins?

SCC played LIGHTS OUT in that first half!!!
Go get you some Flyers - 20 minutes from glory baby!
I was looking over all of Sandhills' scores from throughout the season and thought it was interesting to note that coming into the national tournament Sandhills had not played in any games this season that were decided by three points or less, or in any overtime contests.
You would think that would be a disadvantage for a team facing that situation for the first time all season, especially for only a fourth-year program making their first ever appearance on such a big stage, but how did the Flyers handle it? They go and win their first two games by a combined total of 2 points and needed an extra frame to do so to reach the championship... Talk about clutch!
WHAT A GAME!!! Watched it on the live feed from the NJCAA and just about tore my house down when that shot went in. Way to go Flyers!
The show goes on...
Way to go fellas.
I hope this little guy doesn't end up like that escaped emu from last year...
Speaking of which, does this monkey have large talons?
