Johnston County South tops Cleveland for 8U district crown

A couple big innings at the plate and the flashing of some leather on defense propelled Johnston County South to the Tar Heel Leagues District V 8U softball title Thursday night at Clayton Community Park. South jumped out to a big lead with five runs in the first and then used a four-run fifth inning to finish off Cleveland 13-2 to advance to the state championship tournament to be held in Shelby between July 17-20.
