Nocona teams struggle against Breckenridge

Published

on

Baseball
The Nocona Indians were not able to carry the momentum of their previous win into Friday’s game at Breckenridge.
The Buckaroos won 20-1 in five innings due to run-rule in a game where not much went right for the Indians.
Breckenridge scored three or more runs in all four innings it had at-bats. The things that have killed Nocona recently reared their head as the team gave up nine walks, hit three batters and committed eight fielding errors. That led to the Bucks eight hits usually dealing big damage with runners always being on base.
Nocona’s batters had trouble getting on base or getting hits. Kooper Hansard got the only hit for the Indians as he led off the game in the first inning.
Nocona was able to score in the third inning when Bodie Davis drew a walk and later score when Breckenridge committed its only error of the game trying to field a Hansard groundball.

Softball
The Nocona Lady Indians lost at Breckenridge on Friday night.
The Lady Bucks won 10-0 in five innings due to run-rule in a game where only one bad inning ended up costing the Lady Indians.
Breckenridge scored one run in the first inning and three in the third to build a 4-0 lead that was still relatively close.
Nocona batters were doing a good job of putting the ball into play, but only two went for hits during the game and the team drew only one walk.
Breckenridge then scored six runs in the fourth inning to build the lead to double-digits and Nocona had no answer offensively.
Avery Crutsinger and Maddie Ezzell each got the only hits for the Lady Indians.
Pitcher Sydnee Mowry limited the free bases she gave up only walking two batters and making Lady Buck batters make contact. Unfortunately, the defense committed six fielding errors as only two of the 10 runs give up ended up being earned.

on

Devin Stewart scored 22 points for Saint Jo and helped the Panthers beat Bellevue on Friday night.

The Saint Jo Panthers were able to bounce back and beat Bellevue on Friday night in Bowie to earn the third seed in district play.
The Panthers won 69-51 against a hot Eagles team coming into the game.
Bellevue had won the last four district games heading into the game, including a dominant win against Saint Jo just the previous week.
The Eagles comeback win against second seed Forestburg earlier in the week clutched at least a playoff spot, with a play-in game against the Panthers for the third seed.
The first quarter was competitive as Bellevue led 15-12 as the Eagles had five different players score at least one point.
The Panthers answered back in the second quarter, scoring 22 points as the team got a big lift from Devin Stewart who scored nine points during that period.
Bellevue kept up, scoring 16 points even as it fell behind a little bit.
Saint Jo led 35-31 at halftime.
The Panthers defense stepped up in the third quarter, limiting the Eagles to only one basket and some free throw attempts as Bellevue scored seven points.
Saint Jo got a big boost from Barrett Johnson, who scored 10 of his team’s 14 points as the Panthers lead extended.
Saint Jo led 49-38 heading into the final period.
While the Eagles scored a bit better in the fourth quarter, scoring 13 points, it was not enough to keep up with the Panthers. Saint Jo went 12-16 from the free throw line in the final period alone, which helped the team score 20 points and pull further ahead.
The Panthers won 69-51.
