High School Baseball:
Hilt Does It All for West Deptford

Baseball can be a very interesting game where sometimes the bounces on the field just don't go your way. When those times occur, the main focus is to just get the outs in order to get through an inning. On the other side of the players' bench, there's a different feeling that the players don't want it to end. In a Colonial Conference game played at Audubon, the high flying Eagles from West Deptford were the recipients of everything going right for them. Starting pitcher Justin Hilt drove in seven runs with his bat and West Deptford cruised to a 22-6 win over Audubon.

It would be a battle between the first and second place teams from indicating that both teams were having a winning season. One big difference was that West Deptford has gone eighteen straight games without a loss. The Eagles have been compiling impressive wins and this game would be no difference. Audubon would keep the game close after the first inning by scoring two runs during the bottom half of the inning by trailed 4-2. From that point on, the Eagles could do no wrong as they would score eighteen runs over the next two innings to end this game early The game was highlighted by Hilt and Alex Dalsey’s home runs and extra base hits.
