Bowie baseball loses first game of road trip

Published

on

It was not a good game for the Bowie Jackrabbit baseball team on Tuesday as they lost at Jacksboro in their first of a four-game road trip to end the season.
The fourth and fifth inning got away from the Jackrabbits as they lost in five innings to the Tigers 12-2.
Jacksboro got out to a lead in the first inning. Bowie could not get any runners on base in the first inning. The Tigers leadoff man reached base due to an error by the right fielder.
After pitcher Taylor Pigg struck out the next batter, the Tigers hit back-to-back singles and a sacrifice fly ball to score two runs. Pigg forced the next batter to ground out as Jacksboro led 2-0 heading into the second.
Chance Tomlinson was hit by a pitch with one out. He advanced to second on a groundout to put himself in scoring position, but the next batter struck out to end the scoring chance. A leadoff single from the Tigers led to nothing as Bowie executed an inning ending double play to end the second inning.
Evan Kennedy got on base with a one out single in the top of the third. Unfortunately, Jacksboro pulled off a double play to get out of the inning as well. A leadoff single and walk for the Tigers put base runners on first and second with no outs.
Pigg was able to force two ground outs, but the next batter hit a double into the gap to score both runners and put the Tigers up 4-0 heading into the fourth inning.
A leadoff double from Keck Jones started things off on the right foot. Payton Price followed with a single. Weston Partridge then drew a walk to load the bases with no outs.
Tomlinson drew a walk to score Jones. The next two batters struck out swinging, but Boo Oakley drew a walk to score another run and cut the lead down to 4-2 before the next batter struck out to end the top of the third.
A base hit, hit batter and walk loaded the bases for Jacksboro with one out. After a strike out, the next batter hit a single that scored a run. The next batter then hit a bases clearing double that put the Tigers up 8-2.
Another base hit looked like Jacksboro was going to score more, but the Jackrabbits were able to force a pop out to first base to end the fourth inning.
After two outs, Price and Partridge hit back-to-back singles to get on base and be in scoring position. Unfortunately, the next batter grounded out to end the scoring chance.
A change of pitcher to start the bottom of the fifth did not help Bowie. The Tigers quickly loaded the bases with no outs. A drawn walk and a sacrifice fly ball scored two runs. A fielder’s choice out at home made it seem like the Jackrabbits might get out of the inning. Unfortunately, the next batter hit a single that scored two runs to end the game early, 12-2.

Saint Jo
The Saint Jo Panthers won their hosted tournament last week.
The Panthers went 5-0, winning by double-digits in all of their games.
During pool play Saint Jo beat Newcastle by 50 points (89-39) and Sacred Heart by 20 points (60-40). Bracket play saw the Panthers win even more dominantly first against Petrolia 71-19 and then district opponent Prairie Valley 60-22.
This put them in the championship game against a 2A Muenster program that not only is used to success, but with it only being 10 miles down the road and with current Athletic Director Mark Stevens spending seven years there, the athletic programs are tight.
Usually the bigger Hornets beat up on Saint Jo teams at worse or the Panthers try to keep it close at best during pre-district matchups, but on Saturday that was flipped. Saint Jo beat Muenster 56-46 to win the overall tournament championship.
Kile Thurman was named the tournament’s most valuable player. Brice Durham and Collin Thomas were named to the all-tournament team.

Nocona
The Nocona Indians played in their first tournament at Dodd City last week.
The Indians went 2-2 overall to finish in fourth place at the tournament.
Nocona played two games during pools on Thursday. The first game was a rematch against Bells from earlier in the week. The Panthers then beat the Indians 46-36 and again in pools 53-33.
Nocona was able to bounce back later in the day, winning a close game against tournament host Dodd City 53-47, a state-ranked 1A team.
Going into bracket play two days later, the Indians won another close game, this one against Tom Bean 59-52.
This put Nocona into a game against North Hopkins for third place. The Panthers are a 2A state-ranked team and unfortunately the Indians did not play their best. North Hopkins won 60-36 as Nocona finished fourth.

Prairie Valley
The Prairie Valley Bulldogs played at Saint Jo’s tournament last week to get some work in.
The young Bulldogs went 2-3 overall to finish in fourth place.
Prairie Valley’s first game of the tournament came against 2A Muenster. The Bulldogs lost 55-30.
Prairie Valley bounced back in the second game of pool play against Petrolia, winning 41-30.
The next day the Bulldogs beat Nocona’s JV team 54-30. To get a chance to play for the championship game and another chance at Muenster, Prairie Valley would have to beat district opponent Saint Jo. The Panthers won 60-22, pushing the Bulldogs to play Sacred Heart in the third place game.
Unfortunately, Prairie Valley lost 65-31 to finish fourth overall.

Gold-Burg
The Gold-Burg Bears struggled at the Saint Jo tournament last week.
Out of the five games played, the four that were reported were all losses.
