Patrick Henry and William Fleming battled it out on the Colonel’s diamond Thursday afternoon in a Western Valley District cross-town rivalry won by the Patriots.

The grills were on fire adjacent to the Colonel dugout as the Fleming and Patriot fans as well as the media enjoyed hot dogs, hamburgers, chips and soda during the district matchup.

Patrick Henry picked up its fifth win of the season, while the Colonels, still looking for their elusive first win of the year, battled impressively all afternoon.
