Adams Central did what they have done all season long...get an early lead, lose it, then come from behind to take the victory. Lately, they've been doing it against quality teams.
After losing a tough game to state-ranked Norwell, the Jets took Heritage into the eighth inning before scoring two in the top half to defeat the Pats, 7-5 in the first game of two on Thursday night.
Isaac Luginbill had another whale of a game for Dave Neuenschwander's Jets going four-for-five at the plate and then hoisting AC on his shoulders defensively throwing three innings of scoreless baseball in relief of Dalton Combs who got the start.
Luginbill scored the first AC run in the first inning with a one-out double. Two batters later, Landon Brunner would knock in the junior when he singled up the middle giving AC an early 1-0 lead.
Heritage would respond in the third with three runs on a bases-clearing double by Mitchell Castleman to take a 3-1 lead. The fly to right-center dropped right in-between two Jets who both assumed the other would get to it resulting in the hit.
