    Last week, the Jackets opened their season with four straight losses. The first two losses came against district foe Loudon, loss No. 3 was at county rival Rockwood then the Jacket lost their opening round contest of the 2008 Roane County Tournament against McMinn Central by a 12-2 margin.

    Kingston did play well early on against the Chargers and actually held a lead after two innings of play.
