FAYETTEVILLE — South Caldwell is the No. 8 ranked 4A club in the state for a reason.

And Northwood found out why on Tuesday evening.

South Caldwell (18-3) plated five runs in the bottom of the first inning and never looked back in an 8-0 victory which gave the Spartans third place overall in the Terry Sanford Easter Invitational Tournament.

Northwood managed just four hits in the contest with Justin Szczypinski going 1-for-2 with a walk, and Dylan Hitt going 1-for-3 with a walk, and Landon Johnson 1-for-3.

Colby Rollins picked up the win for South Caldwell after working five innings and yielding two hits, four walks and striking out four.

Spartan reliever Ryan Parrish hurled the final two frames and allowed one hit and fanned three.

Two walks, a single by Owen Foxx, and a three-run homer by Hunter Ingle put South Caldwell up 4-0 before the home squad added another run in the first inning aided by a pair of Northwood errors.

Singles from Sam Rosario and Isaiah Kirby coupled with another Chargers error plated another run in the home half of the third to send the Spartans up 6-0.

South Caldwell put the game away in the sixth with two more runs to go up 8-0. A leadoff triple by Avery Raynor got the Spartans rolling before Clay Canale and Kirby chipped in RBI-singles.

Ingle paced the Spartans at the plate with a 3-for-4 effort that included a single, homer and four RBI while Foxx was 3-for-3 with a run, and RBI and two doubles.

Tyler Johnson suffered the loss on the mound for the Chargers after going 5.1 innings and allowing nine hits, eight runs (seven earned), three walks and striking out three.

John Kurz hurled the final .2 innings and yielded one hit.
