Huge swings in fortune are commonplace in high school sports. However, the fans watching as J. Frank White Academy hosted a baseball game with Pineville high school on March 16, 2017 saw changes in momentum that few could have expected.

By the second inning, the Knights had taken the lead with 5-0. The Mountain Lions finally scored a run in the third inning but the Knights still led 7-1. In the fourth inning the Knights extended their lead to 10-2. Both teams tallied 3 runs in the fifth, making the score 13-5.

And then “Old Mo,” as some old-timers refer to the fickle thing known as momentum, reared his head and turned the game around.

The 6th inning was devastating for the Knights as the Mountain Lions bats came alive and they scored 9 runs. Pineville took the lead 14-13 by the beginning of the 7th inning. In the final inning, the Mountain Lions hot hitting continued. They scored 11 runs while the Knights were held scoreless, giving Pineville the win 30-13 and leaving the Knights scratching their heads and wondering how the game got away from them so quickly in the final two innings.
