Mill Creek vs Dacula Baseball

On Wednesday May 11, 2011 I photographed the Mill Creek – Dacula state playoff doubleheader for the Dacula Patch. The Mill Creek Hawks stepped onto Fathers Field against the Dacula Falcons for the second round of the Class AAAAA state high school baseball playoffs.  Mill Creek took an early lead over Dacula during the first game of their doubleheader.  The Falcons tried to regain some footing late in the sixth and seventh innings but the Hawks maintained their lead winning 5-3.  The second game, Mill Creek pitcher Brian Stillwell threw a no-hitter enabling the Hawks to win 1-0.  Mill Creek moves on to the next round of the playoffs with another doubleheader on May 17. Here are my favorite images from game one.
