Friday night was a repeat of Tuesday night’s loss for the baseball team, as they were defeated 15-4. Overall, the team was outsourced 30-6 in the two games against the first-place Allen Eagles.

On Friday night, the Panthers fell behind early, as the Eagles scored five runs in the top half of the first inning. In the bottom half of the inning, junior Chase Cotton got the Panthers on the board with a two-run home run to deep left field.

The game remained scoreless until the bottom of the third inning, in which junior Jonathan Mcnair drove in two runs with a single. The game remained close as the sixth inning began with the Panthers still trailing 6-4. In the top of the sixth, the Eagles could not be contained, as they scored nine runs to push the lead to 15-4.

After a scoreless bottom of the sixth, the game was called to run-rule. The Panthers now sit at 2-10 in district play with the final series of the season coming up this week.

Hi, my name is Jacob Murphy, and I am currently one of the Sports Editors for the newspaper. I am a senior this year; this will be my second year on the staff. I will be covering sports this year alongside my good friend Joey. I have been involved with sports my entire life, whether it has been playing or watching them. I plan to pursue a degree in sports journalism and continue covering sports. I am looking forward to gaining even more experience in covering and writing about sports this school year. I’m glad to be an editor on the Panther Prints this year, and I hope I can make an impact on the newspaper.
