Hawks host the Terrell Tigers
RED OAK - On the other side of the street, the Hawks were busy making a playoff run of their own.
They hosted the Terrell Tigers on Tuesday, April 12.
The Tigers played like they had nothing to lose and they didn’t.
Clearly out of the playoff picture, they took some base running risks they probably wouldn’t have earlier in the season.
Early on, it paid off and they were able to move runners around and scratch one run across.
However, it didn’t last long.
The Hawks got the bats going and the defense started picking off those risky runners including a throw home to Catcher Dillon Cartwright who tagged the runner out.
The Hawks would eventually cruise to a 10-1 win over Terrell.
Their next game would not be as easy as they traveled to Forney.
The previous meeting between these two teams proved to be exciting to say the least.
The Hawks however, were up for the tasks as they went into Forney and were able to bring home another huge district win 5-3 and shouldn’t have any problems making the playoffs.
The Hawks have two home games left against Corsicana Tuesday, April 19 and Lancaster (Senior Night) Friday, April 29.
The JV Hawks were not as fortunate against Forney as they lost their game.
The Freshman Hawks hosted Ennis in an end of season double-header at home last Saturday.
The first game was a see-saw battle back and forth with each team taking the lead at their turn at bat and the Hawks at last ups and were able to score the winning run and beat Ennis 8-7.
In the second game, the Hawks spotted Ennis five runs and it looked like Ennis was on their way to win game two, but the Hawks came right back and scored six runs to take the lead back.
Eventually the Freshman Hawks would win game two and end their season on a high note with a record of 10-2.
