CANTON - Errors cost Canton as they fell to South Williamsport, 8-5, during non-league baseball action.

The Warriors led 2-0 after the first but found themselves down 8-2 midway through the fifth. They would tack on three runs in the bottom half of the inning to cut it to 8-5 but couldn't get any closer.

Hudson Ward got the start, and took the loss, going two innings with four strikeouts, one walk, three hits, and three runs, one of which was earned.

Holden Ward pitched an inning with five walks, no hits, and three earned runs.

Zach Colton finished out in four innings of relief, allowing three hits, two runs, two walks, one earned run, and striking out two.

Colton also had the big hit to get them back in it, a 3-run double in the fifth. He finished 1-for-4 on the day with Hudson Ward (2-for-4) getting a double with an RBI and a run scored.

Ben Fitch (1-for-3) also had a double as Bailey Garner (1-for-3) scored a run. Holden Ward scored twice with Cohen Landis also crossing home, while having the defensive play of the night when he bare handed a hard hit ground ball that took a bad hop, then threw to first for the out.
