The Norris City-Omaha-Enfield Junior High baseball team played their only game of the week Tuesday afternoon when they welcomed the Carrier Mills Wildcats to town. This game did not get off to the start that NCOE had hoped when the Wildcats jumped out to the early 2-0 lead. This lead would swell each inning for Carrier Mills as they would manage to push runs across in each inning until the fifth inning when the Jr.Cards would hold the Wildcats scoreless. This, however, did not change the outcome as the Wildcat pitching would dominate from start to finish and hold NCOE scoreless the entire game as they handed the Jr.Cards the 11-0 loss.
