“Don’t quit!”, that’s what Bradwell Institute coach Rhett Hellgren told his team after they fell behind 10-0 to Groves in the third inning.
The Tigers heeded the first-year coach’s advice and tied the game at 11 after six innings.
However, Groves (7-8, 5-2 Region 3-AAAAA) rallied in the seventh inning, scoring three runs and held on to win 14-12.
Groves broke the tie after Josh Magaw walked a batter and Trey Sprague broke the game open with a two-run single to right field.
The Tigers (4-12, 4-3) scored a run in the seventh inning, but Groves’ Matt Marshall ended the rally to win the game.
Bradwell's next game is 6 p.m., Tuesday at Camden County.
