DOBSON — The Golden Eagles picked up two conference wins with a doubleheader sweep of Carver.


Surry Central’s Samuel Harris threw a five-inning no-hitter in the first game, and catcher Cole Fowler provided plenty of run support in both games.


Fowler hit a two-RBI single, a double and three-run homer to lead the offense over Carver, which committed as many errors as the Eagles had hits.


In the first game, Jake Wilmoth led off with a bunt and reached on an error. He stole second and scored off a single to right by Stephen Bruner.


Bruner stole second and scored off an infield error on a soft liner from Jess Wilmoth for a 2-0 lead.


In the bottom of the second, walks, errors and wild pitches allowed Central to score twice and load the bases for Fowler. The senior lined a shot to center to score two runs.


A hit batter, wild pitch and single by Brett Mosley pushed the score to 8-0 at the end of the second.


Coach Matt Scott reined in his base runners after that, telling them to stay put when they could have advanced on errors and passed balls.


Jake Wilmoth and Forest Kimbrell were walked and came around to score after errors on swings from Bruner and Fowler. John Marshall hit a single through the left side to load the bases.


Michael Roberts brought in a run on a groundout.


Travis Green doubled home two runs with a line drive down the third-base line. Another run scored off an infield error as Central went up 14-0 after three.


Meanwhile, Harris was breezing along on the mound, averaging two strikeouts an inning and eventually striking out the side to end the game in the middle of the fifth.


In the second game of the doubleheader, Fowler hit a three-run homer out to left as the Eagles jumped out to a big lead.


By the time the second game ended early, the Eagles had a 26-0 lead.


The bench saw plenty of action in the doubleheader and made good contributions.
