South Knox 7, North Knox 0: For the second time in 10 days, the Warriors dropped a game against their bitter rivals.


The Spartans scored in four different innings en route to the shutout win in the opening round of the Class 2A Sullivan Sectional on Wednesday.


The loss ended the Warriors’ season with a record of 8-17.


After South Knox grabbed a 1-0 lead in the top of the first inning, the Warriors looked poised to draw even in the home half.


Braxton Yenned ripped a 1-out double to center and stole third. But the Spartans got out of the jam with back-to-back strikeouts.


It would be the last real scoring threat of the game of the Warriors.


Jacob Allen allowed just one other hit over the final six innings. The Spartan hurler finished the game with eight strikeouts and walked just one batter.


South Knox added a pair of two-out runs in the top of the second, another two-out tally in the fourth and three more in the fifth to all but put the game away.


Yenne recorded a single with two outs in the bottom of the sixth for the Warriors second and final knock of the game.
