Weatherford back on track with win over Colts
The Weatherford Kangaroos varsity hitters did their damage early in a District 3-5A baseball match on Tuesday in Arlington. En route to a 5-1 win over the Arlington High Colts, the Roos scored all five runs in the first two frames, leaving the balance of the contest to a pitcher’s duel.
Weatherford sophomore Beau Burrows’ full-game 3-hitter allowed no earned runs in the contest, while striking out 13 Colts batters. The performance was a welcome one for WHS, who were looking to get back in the win column after dropping two-consecutive district contests.
First baseman Dustin Williams had a 3-hit night at the plate including a double, scoring one run and knocking in another. Brock Riebe and Andy Rogers each had two RBIs.
The Roos travel to play Paschal on Friday, with a 7 p.m. start.
