Wright's Walkoff Single Rallies West Columbia Past Evans (Ga.)

Posted

A trio of Airport High current and future graduates helped West Columbia Post 79 take a non-league win Monday at Brookland-Cayce High School.


John Allen Forrester went 4-4 with three runs scored and a home run and Corbin Wright's walkoff 2-run single gave him four RBI in the 6-5 win over Evans (Ga.) Post 192.


Forrester's solo shot in the bottom of the first put West Columbia on the board. After Evans tied the game in the top of the third, Post 79 and Airport High's Layne Turner doubled in the bottom half of the inning to score Forrester.


After Turner drew a walk in the bottom of the fifth inning, Wright cleared the bases with a two-run homer to make it 4-1.


Evans (Ga.) rallied with four unanswered runs in the sixth and seventh innings. Chris Bussey III's RBI single put Post 102 ahead 5-4.


White Knoll's Trey Gallegos led off the bottom half of the inning with a walk. After back-to-back singles by Forrester and Turner, Airport Class of 2023 member Wright lined a center to score two runners for the walkoff victory.


West Columbia (8-4) plays host to Richland Post 215 at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday. Other League IV action has Lexington Post 7 facing Chapin/Newberry Post 193/24 at Newberry College at 7:30 p.m. 

West Columbia, Airport. Forester, Wright, Turner
