Prep softball ends regular season, baseball making last impressions

— Staff Reports

The precipitation inundating the area on Thursday was hardly a downpour, but the incessant drizzle dealt enough dampness to force Friday holiday games for many local teams.

Softball’s regular season was completed this week and has produced the usual healthy contingent of playoff teams. To say that Aledo dominated District 7-4A play could be an understatement, as the Ladycats nearly run-ruled the table and will take a No. 1 seed into postseason.

Weatherford and Brock also step into their respective second seasons, with both entering as two seeds. There are seedings yet to be determined, and bi-district play is set to begin April 29.

Prep baseball enters its final week, with most of the Parker County contingent already assured a postseason slot or a having shot at getting in or improving their seeding.

 

Weatherford 3, Arlington Lamar 1

The Kangaroo varsity made the very most of three hits on Friday, producing three runs in the bottom of the fourth frame. Erasing a 1-run deficit to take the lead it held for the rest of the game, Weatherford was victorious in the 3-1 win over the Arlington Lamar Vikings.

Lamar scored its lone run in the first frame. Maneuvering a runner to second base, a single got the runner home. Weatherford had its only error in the opening inning, but the miscue did not hurt them and the defense was solid for the balance of the match.

The Vikes pitching remained effective for the first three Weatherford at bats, but the Roo offense heated up in the fourth.

The Roos tied the game with a bases-loaded walk, as Beau Burrows looked at four-straight balls to collect the game-tying RBI. A single by Alex Wirsing and a sac fly by Hayden Rowell netted one run each, and the eventual final score was reached, leaving the rest of the game to the pitchers and the defenses.
