Mayor’s Cup goes to Edmond despite dramatic Westmoore victory

MOORE —  

Heading into last weekend's Mayor's Cup, No. 10 Westmoore was not playing at its best. Riding a three game losing streak, the prospect of playing defending state champion Edmond North would not seem to be something to get excited about.

However, days before the Jaguars and third-ranked Huskies were to face-off, Westmoore's Kevin Gay talked about he was looking forward to the matchup in the 4th Annual Mayor's Cup.

"I am looking forward to playing a defending state champion," Gay said April 3. "That's always exciting to play. And to play on the field is another great thing. It's a great atmosphere for the players and the team."

Gay and his Jags showed why they were excited when they came away with a 3-2 win at the Redhawks Bricktown Ballpark in Oklahoma City.

"It was a good win for the program," Westmoore coach Jarod Freeman said. "Hopefully it was the win that will spark our team for the second half of the season. Coming into the game our loses were not bad loses. We were just a couple plays away from winning two of those three, but our guys kept fighting and came up with a big win Saturday."

The win didn't come easy for the Jags. Despite a strong pitching performance, the Huskies took a 2-0 lead into the bottom of the seventh inning. However, Westmoore rallied to get two runners on for Kevin Gay, who knocked in both runs to send the contest in to extra innings.

With the scored tied at 2-2 in the bottom of the 11th inning. Gay came to the plate again with two outs and he quickly got two strikes on his count. Gay then came up with a another clutch hit to drive in the game-winning run.
