The Trojans have filed a protest of their 11-7 loss to the Bobcats due to Bell's alleged use of an ineligible pitcher.
Senior Steven Hunter came on in relief of starter Brandon Jackson in the second inning and worked one inning after pitching a complete game against Harlan in the Philpot Memorial Tournament on Saturday. KHSAA rules require pitchers to rest three full days after pitching seven innings.
Cawood (5-6) pounded out 11 hits against the Bobcats but committed six errors to aid Bell's cause.
Cory Estep doubled and singled to lead the Trojans, and Mikey Hensley and Derrick Watkins added a pair of singles apiece. Blake Turner doubled, and Will Colinger, Sam Jenkins, Billy Turner and Jon Whitehead each singled.
Hensley (3-4), a junior right-hander, suffered the loss on the mound for the Trojans.
Bell was led at the plate by Dustin Johnson with a double and a single. Hunter, Jackson, Spencer Greer and Kyle Nelson each added singles.
Jackson returned to the mound in the third and worked 1 1/3 innings before being replaced by Nelson, who finished the game.
The Trojans return to action tonight at home against Lee, Va. Bell will play host to North Laurel on Thursday.
