With Owensboro Catholic taking 2 from Owensboro High on Tuesday night and Daviess County
beating Apollo in a rain delayed makeup game on Tuesday as well, all 4 local teams finished with a surprising 3-3 record on the season. That leads to an old fashioned "Blind Draw" on Friday afternoon to see who will come out as the #1 v #4 & #2 v #3. Daviess and Owensboro were clearly the preseason favorites to battle for District honors. Plus, many predicted the two would battle each other in the 3rd Region finals. Both have balanced teams, top to bottom with good pitching depth. Owensboro Catholic snuck in and beat Owensboro with an 8th grader on the mound to close out the rain delayed game on Sunday then followed up with a gem of a game with a up and coming freshman in Hunter Small who went the distance in a 5-2 victory on Tuesday. Daviess won with a Homerun by Kirk Leibert in the top of the 7th to beat Apollo 3-2.
Crazy things can happen with a blind draw, the 2 best could draw each other opening the door for Catholic and Apollo to play each other. Throw records out the door. Anything is possible with these 4 schools.
