Hawks battle ex-coach on the diamond
RED OAK - After beating Forney on Friday, March 23 for a big district win, the Hawks had to turn around and come back and play the district leading Corsicana Tigers and face their ex-coach for the first time.
However, first and foremost for the Hawks was to win the game and better their position for a play-off spot.
Corsicana came in undefeated in district, but struggled to shake the feisty Hawks.
For the majority of the game, the Hawks matched Corsicana run for run, but late in the game Corsicana pulled ahead and hung to win 7-5 and stay undefeated.
Despite the loss, the Hawks are not out of the play-off picture yet.
A strong second half of the season could easily put the Hawks in the thick of things.
