Weatherford’s Riney no-hits North Crowley
Kangaroos hurler Matt Riney threw a no-hitter on Tuesday, picking up his fifth win of the season on the mound, in grand fashion. The senior right-hander had four strikeouts and a lone walk on the night, letting the defense behind take care of the balls put into play. Playing on the road, the Roos beat North Crowley, 10-0.
Weatherford was led on offense by a stellar game from Andrew Healy. The catcher had three hits, including a double and a home run en route to four RBIs. Mitchell Dworsky also had a 3-hit game, driving home two runners.
Weatherford also benefitted from hits by Dustin Williams, Andy Rogers, Will Young, Grayson Huffman, Beau Burrows, Chris Pohl and Cory Bynum (a double, two RBIs). The Roos, who will host Arlington Lamar in a District 3-5A match on Tuesday at 7 p.m., improved to 4-1 in district play, and are 18-2-1 on the season.
Bearcats bust out in fourth inning, record District 7-4A win over Southwest
In a game otherwise controlled by pitching and defense at Bearcat Field on Friday, the fourth frame was an anomaly — but a very good departure for Aledo. Down two runs after Fort Worth Southwest added a score in the top of the fourth, the Bearcats went on a two-out rampage, scoring nine runs en route to a 10-2 district victory over the Raiders. Aledo took advantage of five walks, three hits and a Southwest error during the rally.
Chris Reed started on the mound for Aledo, striking out seven Raider batters while giving up a single earned run, and was spelled in the fifth frame by Mark Swift, who held Southwest scoreless over the last three innings. Both pitchers scattered six hits in the contest.
Also banging out a half dozen hits, the opportunistic Aledo offense was led by Caleb Frysinger’s two hits, who scored a run and had an RBI. Tyson Mauser crossed the plate twice and was credited with a pair of runs batted in.
Improving to 4-1 in district play, Aledo hits the road on Tuesday to take on the Pirates in Granbury. First pitch is slated for 7 p.m.
Lady Roos clobber Houston, 23-1
Weatherford softball took three turns, plus, around the batting order in as many innings on Friday, while augmenting their average runs per game in a 23-1 route over Arlington Sam Houston’s Lady Texans in a District 3-5A match.
Leadoff hitter Kelsey Horton went 4-for-4 at the plate, and was responsible for six runs, scoring all four times and driving in another two. Lauren Leach and Liz Konig had three hits each, driving in three and two RBIs, respectively.
With the WHS girls scoring 20 runs in the first two innings, Starter Kelsey O’Brien stepped out of the circle after the first frame, as Lady Roos head coach Ty Comstock handed the ball to Darrion Ross.
Halfway through its district schedule, Weatherford is 7-0, and looks to extend their unbeaten streak on Tuesday, traveling to play Arlington Bowie at 6 p.m.
