TRURO – The Cobequid Cougars look to keep an excellent season rolling Friday as they host the Springhill Golden Eagles in a high school baseball doubleheader.
Game 1 gets underway at 7 p.m. at Bible Hill Rec Park.
The Cougars enter the contest with a 6-2 record after winning four of their six games last weekend in doubleheaders against the Central Kings Gators, Amherst Vikings and Avon View Avalanche.
Sam Byers is scheduled to start the opening game for the Cougars. Byers, a Grade 12 student, is 2-0 this season and holds a 0.82 ERA. He’s also collected 13 strikeouts.
Cobequid will send Grade 10 hurler Matthew LeBlanc to the mound in Game 2. He got a no decision in his only other start of the season.
On Saturday the Cougars hit the road to take on the Hants North Flames at 1 p.m. in Kennetcook and make their way to Alma Sunday for a meeting with the Northumberland Nighthawks at 2 p.m.
