Long Inning Costs Groveton In State Semifinal Game

SSS_7522

ROUND ROCK -- The winning coach of this Class 2A state baseball tournament will undoubtedly admit a little luck was involved somewhere along the postseason ride. Whether it was a dramatic late-inning comeback or just getting that one call to change a team's spirits, something happened.

Dallardsville Big Sandy got off to a slow start Wednesday, but a judgement call to spearhead a five-run fourth inning gave it momentum it never relinquished against Groveton in the state semifinal round, 7-3.

The Indians' season came to a close at Dell Diamond in Round Rock with a final record of 31-4. It was just their second loss of the postseason, preceded by second-day wins to get them by Woden in a best-of-three regional championship round.

There weren't many breaks that went Groveton's way this time.

HEATH -- Brandy Harris drove a near perfect shot to no man's land between four Whitesboro defenders to lead off the top of the seventh. Right fielder Weston Hickman's ESPN Top 10 caliber, full extension catch was just a little bit better.

That's the kind of day it was for Beckville in a 2-1 season-ending loss Saturday at Rockwall-Heath High School in Game 2 of the Class 3A Region II championship series. Whitesboro caught more of the breaks late, was the stronger offensive team in early innings and advanced to Round Rock for the 3A state tournament.
