CARROLLTON -- The Carroll Academy Rebels will begin their quest for a Class A title as the playoffs are set to begin on Good Friday at Hebron Christian.

The Rebels are 6-9 overall after dropping a pair of games to Benton Academy Thursday. The Raiders won District 4 with an 8-0 record, and the Rebels came in second at 6-2.

The Eagles are the number one team from District 3 and went 11-3 overall.

The Rebels had the ideal opportunity to clinch a district title Thursday at home when Benton came to Carrollton. The Rebels weren't able to capitalize and were swept at home by the Raiders 7-3 in game one and 13-3 in game two.

Jake Streater (2-4) got the loss in game one as he allowed five runs on eight hits, walking five and fanning six. Junior Payton Neal started on the mound, but only went 22/3 innings. He was removed with a blister on his middle right finger. Neal gave up two runs on two hits, walking one, hitting one batter and fanning one.

Carroll led 1-0 after the second frame when Justin Farris reached by error, stole second and scored on two consecutive wild pitches.

Benton came back with two runs in the top of the third. The Rebels made it 2-2 when Jordan Bell drove in Streater from third base with a single to right-center field in the third.

Both teams plated a run in the fourth inning. Farris scored from third on a fielder's choice by Tristan Wiggins.

Carroll only had three hits in the first game. Andrew Montgomery, Farris and Bell had a single each.

Austin White, who had three singles and scored two runs at the plate, was the winning pitcher. He went the final three innings, striking out three.

In the second game, Benton scored six runs in the second and seven in the fifth to claim its 13-3 win. Carroll scored two in the first and one in the fifth.

Colby Harper (2-3) got the start on the mound as he walked seven and struck out four.
