SOUTH POINT — Moore was less.

The win keeps South Point atop the OVC at 4-0 and 6-0 overall.

The Pointers wasted little time by scoring a run in the first inning.

Chase McWhorter singled and scored when Jacob Seagraves and Tyler Smith reached on errors.

The lead went to 3-0 in the third inning.

Anthony Ross and Moore smacked back-to-back doubles for the first run. After Seagraves walked, Smith delivered a run-scoring single.

A run scored in the fifth inning when Moore was hit by a pitch, McWhorter walked, both moved up on a ground out and Smith had a two-run single.

The final run scored in the sixth when Chris Brown singled, stole second and third, and came home on a sacrifice fly.

Clinton Baise had the only hit for Chesapeake (1-4, 1-2).

The Pointers host East Carter, Ky., Tuesday.
