WC splits with North Texas Central

Staff Report

Hunter Lockwood had two hits, both extra-base knocks, as the Weatherford College Coyotes erased an early 4-run deficit to beat North Central Texas in the first game of a North Texas Junior College Athletic Conference (NTJCAC) double header, played in Gainesville on Wednesday. 

Lockwood finished the game with three runs batted in, hitting a 2-RBI triple in WC’s big-scoring fourth frame. The Coyotes crossed the plate with six runs, surging ahead for the lead they would hold for the balance. The sophomore also hit a solo homer in the sixth inning in the 11-7 WC win.

WC third baseman Trooper Reynolds also had a trio of RBIs, all in the sixth frame, clearing the bases with a double.

Jacob Stone started on the mound for the Coyotes and was one out shy of a complete game, when head coach Jeff Lightfoot inserted Parker Thomas to finish off NCTC.

The Coyotes’ bats were muted in the second game of the twin bill, dropping the contest 11-1, resulting in a split. Reynolds picked up another RBI and Trevor Simms had a pair of hits, but the WC offense was not near enough to counter the 12-hit attack by the Lions.

Despite the Game 2 loss, the Coyotes gained a half game on 4th-place Hill College, who started the day three games up, but were swept by Cisco, Wednesday. 

WC has six games remaining in their NTJCAC schedule, hosting NCTC in a 2-game set on Saturday at Roger Williams Ballpark, and playing home-away double headers with Cisco to end the regular season. Saturday’s fare begins at 1 p.m.
