Weatherford also received offensive support from Riebe 2 hits, 3 runs, Dworsky 2 hits, 2 runs, Rogers 3 hits, 3 RBI’s including double and triple, Will Young 1 hit, Andrew Healy 1 hit, and Tony Rodriguez 1 hit.

Friday began with a 4-1 Weatherford win over Mansfield Legacy. Will Young pitched six shutout innings, spelled by Cory Bynum, who closed out the final frame. 

Bynum also led the hitting for the Roos, with two hits and a run batted in. Andrew Healy stroked a pair of hits, while Riebe’s lone hit was a double. 

Matt Riney climbed the mound against Midland Christian, throwing a 3-hitter with 10 K’s in a complete-game effort. The WHS boys won, 6-2.
