BEAR CREEK — Chatham Central took a double header sweep of Cornerstone Wednesday evening in Bear Creek in 1A Central Tar Heel Conference play.

In the opener, the Bears rode the arm of Michael Moore who fired a five-inning, one-hitter than included five strikeouts and a walk.

The Moore effort trumped a great outing by Cornerstone ace Max Green who went four innings and allowed one hit, one runs, walked two and fanned two.

Carter Fuquay scored the winning run in the bottom of the fourth after singling and later scoring on a base hit from Riley Lagenor.

Moore had the only other hit the Bears while Drew Clark was 1-for-2 to lead the Cardinal at the plate.

In the nightcap, the Chatham Central pitching was strong once again as Caleb Staley allowed just two hits and a walk in the five inning 4-0 victory while striking out five.

The Bears plated three runs in the first and then another in the third to cruise to the 4-0 win.

Colin Lagenor was 2-for-2 at the plate to lead Chatham Central offensively while Moore was 2-for-3 with a run, Cox 1-for-2 with an RBI, Staley 1-for-3 with two RBI, and Tyson Measamer 1-for-3.

Nathan Townsend and Johnny Dean were each 1-for-2 in the loss for Cornerstone while Jaron Henderson suffered the defeat on the hill after going all five innings and allowing eight hits, four runs (three earned), no walks and fanning three.
