Young, Riney combine for abbreviated no-hitter

Staff Report

The Weatherford Kangaroos’ offense and defense were very near the top of their games on Thursday, as they visited Arlington Sam Houston for a District 3-5A match.

Will Young took care of the first three innings on the mound for the Roos, fanning five Texan batters. WHS head coach Terry Massey, already enjoying a 15-run lead, inserted Matt Riney in relief to pitch what turned out to be the final two frames. Riney kept the no-hitter intact, striking out three more hitters, with no free passes. 

The Weatherford defense was flawless behind their two pitchers, and have been showing continual improvement in fielding efficiency after being plagued with miscues as recently as a few weeks ago.

Sandwiched between second and fourth innings of one and two runs respectively, the Roo offense banged out 14 runs in the third, ringing a death knell for the Texans’ hope of extending Weatherford to a full seven frames. The big inning featured 11 hits, three of those for extra bases, as Weatherford flirted with batting around in the order... twice.

Brock Riebe arguably had the biggest day at the plate, hitting 4-for-4 including a double and driving three runs home, while also crossing home plate one time. Chris Pohl also put up monster stats, hitting 2-for-3 with a double, scoring twice and tallying 4 RBIs.

The Roos made use of a free Friday, hosting Granbury in an early-afternoon contest.

Weatherford, improving its league record to 6-1, plays its next district contest on Thursday, at Arlington Bowie. In a quick-turnaround week, The Roos host Martin on Friday at Raymond E. Curtis Field. Both games are slated for 7 p.m.


Eight first-frame runs lifts Aledo over Bulldogs

Staff Report

Had it not been for the opening inning on Thursday, as Aledo hosted a District 7-4A contest against Fort Worth’s Trimble Tech, the opposing pitchers could still be putting zeroes on the scoreboard.
