On To Area

James Ward, Sports Editor

The Bearcats won the first game of the area playoff series against Burleson on Thursday. The second game is on Friday at Boswell High School at 7 p.m.


The first game was a defensive battle as both teams only had one run scored by the ninth inning. Burleson scored first in the fifth inning off a RBI single. It wasn’t until the seventh inning when the Bearcats tied the game.


In the twelfth inning with bases loaded, Sam Sisk ended the game with a walk off hit. 


To get to area, Burleson beat Trimble Tech in a three game series and the Bearcats beat Northwest High School in a three game series.

The Ladycats also advanced to area after beating Burleson Centennial in a three game series.


The winner of this series will play either Granbury or Mansfield Timberview.
