Weatherford varsity softball begins its 2014 playoff campaign on Thursday, hosting Keller Timber Creek in the first round of the state playoffs.
The bi-district playoff will feature a best-of- three series.
Game 1, pitting the District 3-5A Lady Roos against the three seed Lady Falcons from District 4, will be Thursday at 7 p.m. at Lady Roo Field.
The WHS girls hope to be up a game on Friday as they head to Keller for the second match, but whether they are looking to close out the series or pull even, the Weatherford softball booster club is planning a send-off to help a Game 2 win.
The Lady Roos will leave from Hall Middle School around 4:30 p.m. and the boosters hope to see a lot of roadside support for the girls as they make their way east on W. Russell Street, then north on South Main and east again on 180 at the court house.
Friday’s game at Timber Creek is also slated for a 7 p.m. start. If a rubber match is necessary, the teams will square off at Aledo High School on Saturday, with a noon start.
Tickets for the games are $5 for adults and $3 for students.
