Dawson 10, Riesel 1
The Dawson Bulldogs got a strong pitching performance from Justin Gray and a convincing 10-1 win over Riesel Friday. Gray pitched a complete game, giving up an earned run, striking out six and walking two.
The Bulldog defense stepped up. There were plays in the outfield made by Dalton Long, covering a lot of territory to rob hitters of extra base hits, and the play of freshmen Connor Mcentire and Austin Jackson giving all out effort to rob hitters of base hits. The play behind the plate from Mason Burleson kept the running game of Riesel to a minimum as he threw out the only would-be base stealer.
The scoring started in the fourth inning with Lane Dotson hitting a laser over the the left field wall to stake Dawson to a 1-0 lead. It picked up again in the sixth with Gray getting hit by a pitch, Dotson walking and Trent Underwood singling to load the bases for Brandon Cehand, who singled to score a run. Seth Lachney then singled to score another run and with the bases still loaded, Mcentire came up and delivered a bases-clearing triple to the center field wall. Reese Walker then came up with a base hit to score Mcentire. To finish off the scoring, Long singled to right field, scoring Reese from second base.
