BURLINGTON — Chatham Central smacked 21 hits en route to a 17-5 demolition of Clover Garden last Thursday afternoon in 1A Central Tar Heel Conference softball action.

Chatham Central (10-0, 10-3) sent five runs across in the first but Clover Garden countered with two in the bottom of the frame and three in the second to tie the game at 5-all. A six-run outburst by the Bears in the fourth coupled with two more in the fifth, and four more in the sixth to all but end the contest.
