Coyotes blank Eastfield College in non-conference clash, 3-0

Staff Report

Pitchers Trevor Simms, Calvin Loftis and Seth Henry combined for a Coyote shutout performance on Monday, as Weatherford College traveled to Mesquite on Monday for a 9-inning non-conference match against Eastfield. The trio of hurlers scattered six hits in the game, and starter Simms notched four strikeouts over six frames, as WC won, 3-0.

WC, also blanked for five innings, figured out Eastfield pitching in the top of the sixth when Cody Semler’s single broke the stalemate. The Coyotes finished the frame with two runs, and Semler added another RBI in the eighth, boosting a sac fly to score Colton Hall.

Weatherford resumes conference play on Wednesday, hosting a double header with Vernon College, with the first game at 3 p.m.

 

Roos notch another District 3-5A win, beat Paschal, 5-0

Staff Report

Beau Burrows climbed the mound for the Weatherford Kangaroos on Tuesday in a home game against Paschal, pitching a complete-game shutout and throwing a double play ball to end the contest. Burrows fanned nine batters in the stint, yielding just three hits to the Panther batters.

Weatherford cranked up its offense in the second frame. With the first two batters resulting in two outs, Mitchell Dworsky drew a walk and was pushed to second on a Cory Bynum single to left. Beau Burrows filled the bases with a walk, and Brock Riebe forced home a run after being hit by a pitch. Andrew Healy made Paschal pay for the free passes when his single pushed two runs across.

WHS increased its lead three innings later, taking advantage of a string of Paschal errors after Dustin Williams led off frame with a single. Will Young also scored when Dworsky hit into a fielder’s choice.

The Roos improve to 3-1 in district play and will travel to play North Crowley on Friday.
