Hallsville hangs on to beat Corsicana 8-4 in Region II 4A Area Round opener


 One thing is for sure when the Tigers and Hallsville hook up in a playoff series. Game 1 is destined to finish after the midnight hour.
It’s also going to be entertaining.
The Tigers and Bobcats provided that once again on Friday night/Saturday morning in Lindale, a game Hallsville ultimately held on to win 8-4 over Corsicana to open up the best-of-three Region II-4A Area Round playoff game.
The teams, who met two years ago in a thrilling series won by the Tigers, will play Game 2 at noon Saturday in Mineola. Game 3 would follow if necessary. The Tigers (21-9) will have to force that Game 3 against Hallsville (28-3) with Trevor Nolen facing Connor Reich in a battle of aces.
For a moment in Game 1, it looked like the Tigers were going to steal a huge win, just like they did in 2012 in Whitehouse when the Tigers won 7-2 in a game that ended close to 2 a.m.
Trailing 3-1 after Hallsville scored three runs in the top of the third, the Tigers responded to take a 4-3 lead. Rhett Holcomb led off the bottom of the inning with a walk. Layton Wolver singled to move Holcomb to third, stole second and Brady Harlan walked to load the bases.
Bobby Lopez was then hit by a pitch to cut the lead to 3-2. Joe Vasquez then had a sacrifice fly to deep center field to tie the score at 3-3. The Tigers took the lead on D.J. Minniear’s squeeze bunt for a 4-3 lead.
The Tigers couldn’t hold that lead. Hallsville scored three runs off Harlan in the top of the fifth. Logan Bailey and Colton Oberthier had RBI singles to give the Bobcats the lead. Hallsville scored seven of its eight runs with two outs.
Preston Hill started for the Tigers, allowing three runs in three-plus innings. Corsicana took a 1-0 lead in the second inning when Minniear scored on a Hallsville error.

  • GC Baseball/Softball: Mildred names Zamzow new baseball coach; AD Chambliess to coach softball again

         The Mildred Eagles didn’t have to go far to find a new baseball coach to replace Aaron Tidwell, who left the diamond to take the job as the principal of Mildred High School.
        On Saturday, Mildred named softball coach Brett Zamzow its new baseball coach as Zamzow, who was Tidwell's assistant for five years,  moves back to baseball after spending a year coaching softball.
        To complete the move Mildred Athletic Director Billy Dan Chambliess will take over the softball team. Chambliess, who is the head football coach, spent fours years coaching softball before becoming the school’s AD last year. All four of his teams won district titles.

    The Cowboys started training camp the same week that Robert Newhouse died.
    In a way, that’s very unfortunate for Jerry. Thinking back to the “Human Bowling Ball” and the teams of that era might lead to the inevitable comparisons to today’s product on the field.

    His father was a head coach for years at Pecos High and his brother-in-law is the head football coach at DeSoto, but Lawrence Williams Jr., a man who loves coaching football, never had any ideas about being the head man.
    “I love coaching,'' said Williams as he sat at his desk in Blooming Grove, where he became the Lions' head coach this summer. “I just never thought about being the head coach and I never applied to be a head coach. With this job I can still coach.''
