Burrows K’s, Vols errors nail down Roo win in district opener

Staff Report

Junior hurler Beau Burrows fanned 14 Bowie hitters on Tuesday, as the Weatherford Kangaroos varsity opened its 2014 District 3-5A campaign in Arlington on Tuesday. Burrows went the distance in the match and was well-supported by his defense, who played errorless ball.

The Roo offense, on the other hand, took advantage of a handful of Volunteers’ errors and were led by Andrew Healy at the plate, who finished the game with two hits for three RBIs.

 The WHS boys will take a brief respite from district play, but not from baseball, as they are slated to play in the Arlington Heights Classic Thursday through Saturday. The Roos district home opener is slated for Tues., Mar. 11 with the first pitch at 7 p.m.


Heights’ 2-run first holds up as Aledo drops district opener

Staff Report

Playing its District 7-4A opener in Fort Worth Tuesday, the Aledo varsity could manage just a single run, as the Bearcats pitching shut down Arlington Heights’ hitters for six innings. But the ‘Jackets early incursion was sufficient as Aledo fell to Heights, 2-1.

Pitcher Chris Reed gave up just two runs, in the first inning, before settling in for a good outing. He was spelled in the fifth by Garrett Uhl, who closed out the Yellowjackets. Aledo pitching yielded just two hits, but they were costly.

Aledo answered with its only run in the top of the third frame. The Bearcats will play in the Western Hills tourney this weekend and pick back up with district play on Tuesday, hosting Fort Worth’s South Hills in a 1 p.m. start.


Coyotes drop NTJCAC-opening double header to Temple

Staff Report

After dueling the Temple Leopards for six complete innings, with a 1-1 result, Weatherford college had a nasty seventh frame, giving up six runs and dropping the first game of a North Texas Junior College Athletic Conference double header at Roger Williams Ballpark, Wednesday.

Although the Coyotes outhit Temple in the game, costly errors plagued WC in the 7-1 loss.

Weatherford scored first again in the nightcap, but Leopard runs in five consecutive innings saw the Coyotes failing to keep pace as they dropped the second contest, 7-2.

WC will get another shot to even things up on Saturday as it travels to Temple in the double-header return match. The Coyotes are home again on Wednesday, hosting Grayson College.
