SOUTH POINT - Supposedly, revenge is best served cold. But things were still warm when the South Point Pointers got their revenge against the Fairview Eagles.

After losing 4-3 in eight innings Saturday, the Pointers bounced back Monday and spanked Fairview 9-5.

"After playing them so close Saturday and then beating them the way we did, that has to help our confidence," Pointers coach Kevin Milem said. "Wes (Patterson) and Tyler (Staton) came around and were hitting the ball hard."

The Eagles got a run back in the top of the third inning, but the Pointers put up four in their half of the inning to lead 7-4.

Kinney was safe on an error, stole second and Staton singled and stole second and

scored when Corey Smoot singled.

The Pointers got two insurance runs in the fifth inning.

Smoot was safe on an error, stole second and came home when Smith doubled. Patterson got his second RBI single to cap the South Point scoring.

Staton picked up the win as he scattered seven hits, struck out three and walked four.
