Baseball-Softball Postseason recaps

Roos fall behind early, drop Game 1 to Richland

Staff Report

Errors and costly free passes dug an early hole for Weatherford on Friday, as the Kangaroos traveled to meet the Richland Rebels in the first game of a Class 5A, Region bi-district best-of-three match. A 5-run deficit after three complete innings proved too much for the Roos to erase as they eventually took the loss, 7-2.

WHS got off to a good offensive start in the first frame. Back-to-back doubles by Andrew Healy and Will Young resulted in a run to open the scoring in the game.

But Richland wasted little time answering in its first at bat. Three singles, a double and a Roo error produced a lead the Rebels would never surrender in the game.

While the Roo bats banged out seven hits in the game, Richland pitcher Austin Pryor scattered the hits well, preventing a sustained rally by WHS.

Weatherford scored its second, and final,  run in the fourth inning, when Tony Rodriguez drilled a single into right, scoring Will Young.

Pryor re-established the 5-run deficit and helped his own cause with a solo homer in the bottom half of the inning.

Game 2 was set for Saturday as the Roos returned to Raymond E. Curtis to try to even the series. Check the sports page on www.weatherforddemocrat.com for post-game results.

    That coaches will move on, due to advancement of career, life changes or a myriad of other influences, is a given. Aledo is not immune to the turnover, but is year-in and year-out apt to experience very modest changes, due to another myriad of positive factors.
