That is not changing. The Democrat will continue to be the news source for Suwannee County, including Live Oak, Branford, Dowling Park, McAlpin, OBrien and Wellborn. Starting next week, though, Democrat read ers will also notice more regional coverage from North Florida in the Wednesday edition in order to better serve and inform those sub scribers. News doesnt stop at the county line and with staff also covering news and events in Hamilton and Lafayette counties, it makes sense to provide more of that content to the readers in Suwannee County. The focus will remain on Suwannee County and its communities, editor Jamie Wachter said. But now there will be more from around the Suwannee Valley as well. As part of the expanded regional coverage, the midweek Democrat will also feature a combined regional North Florida sports section with news and notes from Suwannee and Bran ford as well as Lafayette and Hamilton County. nttnn n 3 men arrested for cannabis possession rfn r fntb ffb jessie.box@ganews.com LIVE OAK Three men were arrested after a drug deal was in terrupted by the Live Oak Police Department at a Live Oak home March 22.

FRIDAY, MARCH 30, 2018 SUWANNEE DEMOCRAT /LIVE OAK PAGE 3A Remembering Suwannee 61697-1 Inuential Dexter settles in Columbia County As Suwannee County was not estab lished until December 1858, many of its earliest American settlers lived much of their lives in the shadow of other county governments. Since several of Suwannee Countys precursors lost their earliest records to re or other disasters (espe cially Columbia County, which lost four courthouses in a span of about 30 years due to Indians, arsonists, etc.), the Su wannee County Ofcial Records have limited information on these early settlers. Fortunately, other types of records now available on the Internet and in scattered archives provide snippets of life during the pioneer days of Suwannee County. One of these early and inuential set tlers was Thomas D. Dexter. He was born in or around 1814 in Rhode Island accord ing to the Federal census records of 1850 and 1860, and his middle name is shown as Dennis in some records. By 1835, he had moved to Florida, as he is listed as the editor of the recently-established Jackson ville Courier in that same year, after the death of the original editor, Mr. Williams. The Second Seminole War broke out in late 1835, lasting until 1842. Like many men in Florida, Thomas Dexter served in militia service to protect the frontier from Indian attacks and to perform general patrol duties. These militia terms normal ly covered three months. Dexter served numerous terms with North Florida units between November of 1835 and 1839 or so, including Captain D. L. Gardiners Company, William Rosss Company of Mounted Volunteers, and Captain James B. Masons Mounted Company. By 1843, Dexter had moved to Colum bia County, which had been established in 1832 and at the time included Suwannee County. On Dec. 19, 1843, Dexter be came postmaster of Mineral Springs (also known as Rosss Mineral Spring and now known as Suwannee Springs), a position he would apparently hold until February 1851. Thomas Dexter was one of ve whisky merchants in Columbia County in 1845, and also served one two-year term as county commissioner beginning that year. Dexter married Mary Ann Summerlin, who was born in 1828 and was the daugh ter of Jacob Summerlin (Sr.), an early Florida pioneer. The Summerlins were some of Jacksonvilles earliest settlers be fore moving to Alligator (now Lake City), where Jacob Summerlin owned practically all of the towns property at one point. It was Summerlin who changed the towns name to Lancaster, after a local judge who was one of his good friends. Mary Sum merlins dower, discussed in later probate proceedings in Suwannee County, includ ed 2,280 acres. Thomas Dexter was one of the men who later probated and adminis tered the will of Jacob Sr. upon the latters death in 1848. The Summerlin family would become cattle barons and inuen tial settlers in Florida over the next few decades. Jacob Summerlin, Jr., supposedly the rst American born in Florida after it became a United States territory, would later be nicknamed the King of the Crack ers and the King of the Cracker Cow Hunters, and would be instrumental in the growth of Bartow and Orlando among other communities. Jacob Jr. would also board and tutor Thomas and Marys son George, and possibly their other children as well. Another child of Jacob Summerlin Sr., Louisa, would marry Captain John Frink of Hamilton County. After his death in the Battle of Gettysburg in 1863, she would eventually marry prominent Suwannee County citizen and politician John S. Pur viance in 1868. Thomas and Mary Ann Dexter had ve children, Jacob S., Horatio (Horace), Florence, George, and Rebecca (Rubie). Jacob served in the Civil War and was killed in action on May 6, 1864, during the Battle of the Wilderness against Union forces. Horace would go on to be one of the wealthiest men in Suwannee County in the late 1800s and early 1900s, build ing hotels, businesses, and a couple of large mansions on Duval Street, before his death in 1907. Florence apparently died rather young, since she was not listed as an heir in 1887 probate documents. George would build part of the downtown business district of Live Oak. Rebecca married J. C. (Judson Conner) Blount, another prominent citizen of Suwannee County. Well complete a look at Thomas Dex ter next week.

According to recent research from the Pew Research Center in the year 2000, only 14 percent of seniors ages 65 and older were regular Internet users. However, today, 67 percent of those older adults say they go online daily. One of the biggest draws to the Internet for seniors in recent years is to log on to social networking sites like Facebook, Twitter and YouTube. In fact, in 2013, 27 percent of older adults reported using social media, but as of mid2017, that number had risen to 34 percent. Social media usage itself has steadily risen among all age groups since 2005, with 69 per cent of Americans logging on to some social platform regularly. For seniors, social media offers some great benets for overall wellness, including: 1. Keeping in touch with fam ily. The most important benet of social media for seniors is the fact that it gives them a way to stay in touch and maintain their relationships with their families. Generations of family members can stay connected and engage with each other on a regular basis by checking in on Facebook, shar ing photos and videos and making new memories. 2. Staying involved with the community. Social media can pro vide an easy way to stay engaged with friends who may not live nearby, or meet new friends to get the social interaction you need to thrive. Engaging with others and staying socially active is so important for seniors, offering nu merous physical and mental health benets. 3. Research and learning op portunities. Social media tools provide a way for seniors to keep learning about topics that are interesting to them. As an added bonus, they can interact with oth ers who may be searching for the same information. 4. Getting daily entertainment. Social media offers seniors a va riety of ways to stay entertained, from watching video clips of their old favorite shows on YouTube to playing Scrabble with grandchil dren via Facebook or other apps. 5. Peace of mind for family members. By checking in regu larly on Facebook, for example, seniors can provide their loved ones peace of mind that they are healthy and happy. This can be especially important for seniors living alone in their homes. jessie.box@ganews.com LIVE OAK A highspeed chase led to the discovery of 50 grams of cocaine Sunday. According to the Live Oak Police Department, an ofcer attempted a trafc stop in the area of Winderweedle Street and Houston Avenue. The report states that the driver turned on an adjoining road and accelerated away from the ofcer. According to LOPD, the driver continued to ee at a high rate of speed and left the roadway several times, even driving through open elds. When another ofcer came to help the efforts to get the vehicle stopped, the driver made a U-turn and drove in the wrong lane towards one of the ofcers vehicle, the report states. The ofcer had to take evasive action to avoid a collision. According to LOPD, the driver eventually stopped the vehicle and ed on foot through a wooded area. The ofcers gave chase but were unable to locate the driver, the report states. A search of the abandoned vehicle revealed more than 50 gram of cocaine, almost 4 grams of methamphetamine and schedule IV prescription drugs and a safe with scales and packaging to dispense drugs, the report states. According to the report, the driver has since been identied and a warrant for his arrest is being processed.

DArcy, his wife, Robbin, and their two oldest sons moved to Dowling Park the last week of October 1982. According to the Chapmans, much has changed at Advent Christian Village since then. Prior to moving to Florida in 1982, DArcy was work ing as a youth minister in Benson, N.C. Ron Thomas, director of ACVs childrens program at the time, called the Chapmans and asked them to come to Dowling Park to work as house parents. Both DArcy and Robbin were very familiar with Advent Christian Village; both had worked at ACV during college spring breaks. At rst, the Chapmans declined the invitation but after praying about it, they ultimately said yes. They packed up their family, including 10-month-old Stephen and six-weekold Kevin. Their youngest, Andrew, was born about a year and a half later. When the Chapmans rst arrived in Dowling Park, they stayed at the brand new Village Lodge in the Vil lage Square, which was still under construction. Ac cording to DArcy, todays Village Grocer was just a large, empty room and didnt open for business for another year. The Merry Morsel (now the Village Caf) wasnt open yet, either. He remembers teaching ACV President Pomeroy Carters son Chris how to cook om elets on the grill in the new restaurants kitchen. The Chapmans admit that working as house parents was an incredibly challenging job. The children living at ACV at that time were foster children with many needs. DArcy worked full time in residential treatment as one of two Dads while Robbin worked days as a teacher at ACVs SPRINT school for the children living there, and as one of two Moms the rest of the time. During this time, the ACV staff was much smaller, and several young couples moved to the area at the same time. These couples spent a lot of time together, supporting each other and socializing with each other. At that time, the nearest re station was in Live Oak, a 20-minute drive. A childrens cottage had burned to the ground a few years earlier, and though no one was hurt in the blaze, ACV implemented several precau tions to keep such a loss from happening again. Conse quently, every male employee became a volunteer re ghter, including DArcy. More recently, he has even earned his certication as a Florida reghter. Over the next few years, Robbin not only cared for her own boys and the Village children, she also taught full time and earned two masters degrees from Florida State University. DArcy worked very hard as Mr. Mom, and Robbin graduated in 1988 with degrees in exceptional student education and learning disabilities with the help of the Forward Fund, a scholarship still available to ACV employees today. In 1990, the SPRINT school closed and the chil drens program underwent major modications due to changes in public policy. Robbin had already taken a job as a public school teacher, and DArcy became an independent living case manager at ACV. After Good Samaritan Center (GSC), ACVs current nursing home, was built, DArcy worked various jobs there, including case manager, care coordinator and ad missions coordinator over the next two to three years. He eventually worked more than 16 years in social services, before transferring back to independent living social services, where he still works today as a service coordinator. And Robbin is a fth-grade teacher in Su wannee County, a position she has held for many years. Robbin and DArcy enjoy reminiscing about every thing that has changed over the past 35 years at Advent Christian Village. Much of the physical landscape has changed, of course. When they came to work at ACV during college, Myrtle Carter Nursing Home stood where Carter House now stands. When they moved here, there was no Good Samaritan Center, no Cope land Medical Center and no Carter Village Hall. River Woods neighborhood was a hay eld used to feed ACVs farm animals. DArcy used to help with the farm, which included horses, cows and pigs; and Rob bin remembers painting the barn red during one of her college spring breaks. DArcy helped build the current Wee Care building during one of his college spring break trips. Wee Care started in another building in the 80s and the Chapman boys were some of the rst kids served. While many things have changed over the years, the most important aspects of Advent Christian Village its commitment to ministry, its desire for quality and its dedication to serving the Lord have not changed. For more than a century, ACV has been a place people enjoy living and working, and its in large part due to seless and dedicated employees like DArcy Chapman.

Knowles He is not here; he has risen! (John 24:6) This week we celebrate Good Friday and Easter Sunday! I hope you take time to be reminded of all the events leading up to the emp ty tomb found on that first Easter morning! Go back to the Gospels and read the accounts carefully. It is remarkable for an empty tomb to signify the potential for fullness, but it does exactly that! In John 10:10, Jesus said, I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full. Jesus conveys to us the necessity of being filled by His overwhelm ing love and forgiveness, so that we can overcome the natural desire to live to please only ourselves. While it promises great results, living for ourselves will leave us searching, dry, and empty every single time. We live in a culture that champions the paradox of being empty to the point of excess! We cant eat enough, drink enough, spend enough, sleep enough, exercise enough, work enough, take enough med icine, or do enough drugs. All excess is rooted in emptiness. Emptiness screams to be filled, and there is never enough! Enough is enough! Emptiness also impacts our relationships by drain ing the people around us! Living on empty turns us into emotional beggars holding out our cup for the people in our lives to make daily deposits to make us feel good about ourselves. The problem is that even those who love us the most cant keep our nev er-ending cup filled. Because they are human, they will let us down, and we will fall hard if our selfworth is tied to their opinions and care for us. The fullness that Jesus offers consists of His for giveness for our mistakes, His grace for our lack and His purpose for our lives. Bring your cup before Him and He promises to fill it with a never-ending spring of living water! We have worth in Christ that is not measured by what we own, who we know, what we look like or what we can accomplish. We can rest in His fullness knowing that the price has been paid, His life for ours. And to receive it, all we have to do is askbecause your Heart Matters!

On April 9, he will be the rst national security adviser who, upon taking up residence down the hall from the Oval Ofce, will be suggesting that the United States should seriously consider embarking on war crimes. The rst two charges against the major Nazi war criminals in the 1946 Nuremberg trials concerned waging aggressive war. Emboldened by the success, as he still sees it, of Amer icas Iraq adventure that began 15 years ago this month, Bolton, for whom a trade war with many friends and foes is insufciently stimulating, favors real wars against North Korea and Iran. Both have odious regimes, but neither can credibly be said to be threatening an imminent attack against America. Nevertheless, Bolton thinks bombing both might make the world safer. What could go wrong? Much is made of the fact that Bolton is implacably hostile to strongman Vladimir Putin, whom the U.S. president, a weak persons idea of a strong person, admires. And of the fact that the president has repeatedly execrated the invasion of Iraq that Bolton advocated. So, today among the uneduca ble, furrowed brows express puzzlement: How can the presi dent square his convictions with Boltons? Lets say this one more time: Trump. Has. No. Convictions. Even this scatterbrains Swiss cheese-style tariffs are too sloppy to reect forethought. He has sentiments, and viscer al reactions to which he is attentive. But to speak of, say, a sincere sofa is to commit what philosophers call a category mistake sofas are incapable of sincerity and to speak of this presidents convictions (or plans, or policies) about this or that is a category mistake. It is frequently said that the decision to invade Iraq was the worst U.S. foreign policy decision since Vietnam. Actually, it was worse than Vietnam, and the worst in American history, for two reasons. One is that so far we probably have paid no more than 20 percent of the eventual costs of that decision that enhanced Irans ascendency. The other reason is that America gradually waded waist deep into Vietnam without a crossing-the-Rubicon moment a single clear, dispositive decision. In contrast, the protracted preparation for invading Iraq was deliberative and methodical. It is not true that, as the current president and the virulent left insist, President George W. Bush and his senior advisers lied about Iraq possessing weapons of mass destruction. They simply got things wrong, which conservatives, especially, understand was an event not without precedent in the annals of government. For the rst time since World War II, when the mobiliza tion of U.S. industrial might propelled this nation to the top rank among world powers, the American president is no lon ger the worlds most powerful person. The president of China is, partly because of the U.S. presidents abandonment of the Trans-Pacic Partnership without an alternative trade policy. Power is the ability to achieve intended effects. Randomly smashing crockery does not count. The current president re sembles Winston Churchills description of Secretary of State John Foster Dulles the only bull I know who carries his china closet with him. Like the Obama administration, whose Iran policy he ro bustly ridicules, Bolton seems to believe that America has the power to determine who can and cannot acquire nuclear weapons. Pakistan, which had a per capita income of $470 when it acquired nuclear weapons 20 years ago (Chinas per capita income was $85.50 when it acquired them in 1964), demonstrated that almost any nation determined to become a nuclear power can do so. Boltons belief in the U.S. power to make the world behave and eat its broccoli reects what has been called narcissistic policy disorder the belief that whatever happens in the world happens because of something the United States did or did not do. This is a recipe for diplomatic delusions and mili tary overreaching. Speaking of delusions, one died last week the belief that this president could be safely cocooned within layers of adult supervision. Boltons predecessor, H.R. McMaster, wrote a brilliant book (Dereliction of Duty) on the failure of of cials, particularly military leaders, who knew better but did not resist the stumble into the Vietnam disaster. McMaster is being replaced because he would have done his duty regard ing the impulses of the most dangerous American. George Wills email address is georgewill@washpost.com.

When Christ hung, and bled, and died, it was God saying to the world, I love you. The late Rev. Billy Graham Resurrection, renewal, re-birth, all these terms come to mind when we consider Easter. The symbolism, both religious and secular are ever present: baby chicks, rabbits, colored Easter eggs, Easter lilies, orchids for corsages, new brightly colored clothing for Easter services, serving a spe cial Easter meal, and in the Deep South, that meal may include ham, fresh string beans, potato salad, marinated carrots, sweet potato souf, deviled eggs, and for dessert, homemade coconut cake. I asked a number of my readers to share special Easter memories, and their remarks brought smiles and at times, tears. My grandmother always made a special Bunny cake for us at Easter. We always looked forward to that bunny cake and hunting Easter eggs at her house after church on Easter Sunday. I remember Mama making our Easter dresses. She worked for hours on those dresses, and on Easter Sunday, my word, we would be turned out with crinolines, scratchy crinolines, white shoes, hats, gloves. I remember those days and having photographs made. I love Cadbury eggs, and I still love them. I always felt Easter had begun, when I bought that rst Cadbury egg. Dinner on the grounds at the church after Easter morning services. This was at a small country church that didnt have a fellowship hall. We had a shelter and long tables made with plywood and saw horses. The spread put out on that table; ham, potato salad, fresh acre peas, deviled eggs, fried chicken, all kinds of pies and cakes, and lots of sweet iced tea and lemonade and then, after all that huge meal, we hunted Easter eggs. Great memories. I remember loving, loving the fragrance of Easter lilies in the church. Some people dont like that fragrance, but I have al ways loved it. I still love attending Easter services and that fragrance reminds me of Easters long ago. It always takes me back. My mothers homemade coconut cake with pineapple lling or homemade devils food cake. I still remember she made either one or the other and, sometimes when we had lots of company, both. This one is mine. The rst time I re member hunting Easter eggs probably was Easter of 1963, a clear memory. My pater nal great aunt and uncle, the late Mr. and Mrs. James H. Bud Bullard, loaded, me, Libby, Lou, and Linda Bullard up in their big station wagon with our colored Easter eggs. Uncle Bud had two men who worked for him take tobacco sticks and beat the bushes to drive the snakes and bugs away before the eggs were hidden. After we hunted, Aunt Margaret took out a big jar of mayonnaise, made egg sal ad for us, and we ate egg salad sandwich es, drank iced tea, and had some pound cake she had that was made by Aunt Nan cy Morgan. Good memories. Easter Sunrise Services at Stephen Fos ter in White Springs. Theyve been going on for 51 years. Most years I have attend ed with my mother, and we have always enjoyed the service. Unless providentially hindered, I will be there this year at 7 a.m. on Sunday, April 1. I do love to hear Sister Mae France Marshall Sing. What a voice she has!!!! Helping Mama set the table for Easter. Easter was a big deal for her when the family came for lunch. The table was per fectly set with her good china, crystal, and always a small centerpiece, usually made with owers from our gardens or that of a neighbor. Once Publix opened in this area, Mama would have one of those beautifully decorated Easter egg cakes, shaped like an Easter egg baked and she would place it on her crystal cake pedestal and place owers around the base of it. She always helped make Easter special. She still does. Easter egg hunts at our neighbors farm. Our neighbor owns a farm with a beautiful eld and wooded area within a stones throw of the Suwannee River. Each year she hosted a huge Easter Egg Hunt and what a good time we had. Riding in the trailer pulled behind her farm tractor, bas kets in hands. Waiting for the eggs to be hidden and then the hunt. Wonderful. For me, I remember sitting up late with Daddy and Mama and watching Ben Hurl or The Robe. We loved those sto ries. When The Color Purple and Steel Magnolias were released. I often watch one or both of them during the Easter sea son, as the theme of those lms is death, resurrection, re-birth. I remember going into Van H. Priests Five and Dime Store in Live Oak, and I loved all the Easter candy and novelties. And, again, this personal from me, nev er an Easter arrives without me missing the late Mrs. Frances McCall who, for so many years owned and operated Live Oak Florist. Some folks arrange owers, Frances was oral designer, an artist, and oh, her creations were beautiful. I still miss her. No matter where you spend Easter or with whom, I will relate this to my readers. The story of Easter is always the same and, yet, its always fresh and new. Let the message of Easter go with each of you, a story of love, truly, unconditional love. It is a story of human nature which has not changed. Being hailed with Hosanna and, on the way, He healed two blind men, being betrayed, falsely accused, tried and convicted, beaten and abused, crucied, but, then. Three days later Resurrection and HOPE. Anything worth having requires sacri ce. Jesus gave His all for you and for me. I am thankful for many gifts and for this Easter season. Before closing, our sincere sympathy is extended to the family of Mr. Frank Butch Smith, Jr. White Springs. May God comfort and sustain you during this time of sorrow. White Springs United Methodist Church invites you to attend Good Friday Services on Friday, March 29, at 7 p.m. Come join us for the Service of Shadows. The historic sanctuary is on the corner of Wesson Ave nue and U.S. 41. From the Eight Mile Still on the Wood pecker Route north of White Springs, wishing you a day lled with joy, peace, and, above all, lots of love and laughter. Happy Easter. Senior living communities offer friends, signicance and peace of mind While moving to a new place can be overwhelming for seniors, there are many benets to life in a senior living community that can make it an exciting time for your loved one. The people theyll meet, the sense of security and the stressfree, healthy lifestyle available can help provide new possibilities for those looking to begin their next chapter. Socialization is important at any age. In senior living communities, there are always new people to meet. But because of the camarade rie found in senior living communi ties, many say that their neighbors have become like family and the support provided by neighbors is an undeniable perk. Just walking down the street, youll see people smiling and waving as they pass. Most are eager to welcome new people into their ever-expanding circle. And being surrounded by a network of supportive people can provide a sense of security. Some times residents even nd a special someone among the new people they have met. Safety features provide peace of mind, including guest sign-in, gated areas and standard emergency call systems and support staff. More importantly for some, is the benet of nancial security. Low-cost se nior living opportunities keep basic expenses more affordable, remov ing a lot of worry. Having essential shops nearby also helps keep these costs low. Many communities offer restaurants, grocery stores, houses of worship, barbershops and beauty salons, banks and more on site or within walking distance.

Sports SUWANNEE DEMOCRAT /LIVE OAK FRIDAY, MARCH 30, 2018 SEE TRENTON, PAGE 3B Bulldogs outlast Bucks michael.jones@ganews.com LIVE OAK Taking a four-run lead into the top of the seventh inning, Suwannee was just three outs away from victory in what was a pretty normal baseball game. Thats when things started to get crazy. Visiting Deereld Beach, struggling at the plate the entire game, erupted for an unexpected six runs to take its rst lead. But SHS didnt fold when faced with adversity. The Bulldogs came back to force extra innings and then nished off a marathon game with Marquis Jones walkoff single in the ninth inning. After playing for nearly four hours, the Bulldogs escaped with a 11-10 win on Tuesday. When a game starts going to that point, its just tough ness and who wants it more, said Bulldogs coach Justin Bruce. We could have laid down a couple of times. Get ting the win speaks for our team. Were not winning pretty, but at the end of the day sometimes you have to take it in baseball. Hueston Morrill played a big part in the win. Suwan nees leadoff hitter blasted two home runs and scored four times. His last home run was a two-run shot in the ninth inning that tied the score at 10. After the home run, three straight hitters reached base to load the bases for Jones, who hit a ground ball through the left side of the ineld to score Bo Bonds. Jones, who had a tough outing on the mound and was 0-5 before his nal at-bat, came through when Suwannee needed it most. He also made a key play in the ineld in the eighth inning, making a diving stop near third base and tagging the bag to slow down a charging Bucks offense. The Bulldogs nished the game with 11 hits. Trett Wadford went 3-5 with a walk and an RBI. Josh Wharton picked up two hits and scored three runs. Nolan Miller got the start for the Bulldogs and pitched four scoreless innings. Making his varsity debut, sophomore Dawson Harrell picked up the win. He pitched the nal 2 1-3 innings and allowed two earned runs. Biggest thing on the night was Dawson Harrell, Bruce said. A sophomore moving up to varsity and he played huge. That was a big lift when we needed it.

BHS (8-2, 5-1), off to it best start to a season since 2007, had its seven-game winning streak snapped by the speedy Tigers, who stole four bases and took advantage of a two Buccaneers errors. Branford stayed close trailing 3-1 after six innings before Trenton (8-2, 6-0) put three runs on the board in the seventh. We didnt play bad, said Branford coach Alex OQuinn. Theyre pretty fast around the bases. One little mistake and they can capitalize pretty easy because of their speed. We just had a few miscues. Branfords only run came in the first inning when Trey Sapp singled to drive in Cameron Noling. After that, Trenton pitcher Landon Kennedy gave up just one hit in the final six innings. He finished with 10 strikeouts. Branford hit into two double plays and left two runners on base in the fourth inning. Trenton, meanwhile, was able to score six runs on eight hits. The Tigers were led by Daniel Plank and Wyatt Langford, who combined for five hits and four RBIs. THS scored one run in the third inning to take a 2-1 advantage and then one run in the fifth. Rylee McKenzie got the start for the Bucs. He pitched 6 2-3 innings and kept BHS in the game most of the way. I think were pretty evenly-matched teams. Things just didnt fall our way, said OQuinn. Rylee gave us a chance to win. Several times we had runners on base we just couldnt capitalize. UP NEXT: Branford travels to Fort White on Tuesday.
