Rams take two

The Vardaman Rams headed north to West Union for tournament action over the weekend, coming up with two wins for their efforts.
The Rams won over the hosting Eagles, 4-3, with Ty Long getting the win on the hill.
Long helped himself with a double and Dalton Huffman added a double. Brandon Washington had a hit and Chase Owens had two hits and scored twice.
In the second game, the Rams got a come-from-behind win in eight innings as they beat Walnut 7-6. Kemp Edmondson got the win on the mound.
“I was pretty tickled with them,” said coach Boo Griffin. “I knew they were tired. We’d already played a game and were down 3-6, but they fought back, tied it and went to the extra inning.”
Chase Owens, Allen Hendrix, Edmondson and Trae Owens each had two hits and Trae Owens scored the winning run in the top of the eighth.
Walker had three hits and Kent Casey added a double.
The Rams started the week at 4-1, heading to the East Webster tournament Monday and hosting a round-robin with Hebron and Calhoun City March 15.web round vard
