“They have a lot of talent,” Beverly said. “They’re probably one of the top three teams in the state.”
The Warriors (23-5) looked the part on Thursday.
Lee-Scott hurlers Nick Constan and Carson Meadows combined to strike out 20 Fort Dale batters.
Fort Dale led the Warriors 2-0 in Game 1, but the lead was quickly erased by three Lee-Scott runs in the bottom of the first inning. A five-run third inning gave the Warriors a little breathing room.
The Warriors cruised in Game 2, scoring eight runs in the first three innings and eight runs in the fifth inning to close out the Eagles.
Fort Dale finished the season with a 15-12 mark.
