- — Dawson raced out of the gates, then made an early lead stand up with a 7-5 win over Muenster in a Region II-1A quarterfinal series.

Game 2 is scheduled for 1 p.m. Saturday at Saginaw’s Chisolm Trail High School. Game 3, if necessary, would follow 30 minutes later.

Lane Dotson went 3 for 3, and Jared Gray and Mark Martinez had two hits each for the Bulldogs, who moved to 19-7.

The Bulldogs led 5-0 through two, as Gray had two RBIs and Martinez drove in two with a single. In the third, Martinez drove in another run to make it 6-0, and it looked Dawson might cruise.

But in the bottom of the fourth and fifth innings, sandwiched around a long lightning delay, Muenster heated up, and scored five runs to draw within a run.

In the top of the seventh, the Bulldogs added an insurance run when Louis Lachney scored to make it 7-5.
