Porters Chapel rolls over Newton

Published 12:00 pm Wednesday, March 23, 2011

Jarad Tompkins homered, Montana McDaniel threw a three-hitter, and Porters Chapel Academy stayed firmly atop District 5-A by trouncing Newton Academy 12-1 on Tuesday.

Tompkins finished with three hits for PCA (9-1, 6-0 District 5-A), which blew the game open with five runs in the top of the third inning.

The outburst gave the Eagles an 8-1 lead and provided plenty of cushion for their ace McDaniel.
