Mayor’s Cup goes to Edmond despite dramatic Westmoore victory



"It was a roller coaster of emotions but our guys came together and found away to win," Freeman said. "We played a solid game and our players did a good job of picking each other up after our mistakes."

Yet, while the Jaguars on the battle, Moore schools lost the war. In the three-game series against the Edmond schools, Moore was 1-2.

No. 12 Southmoore fell 5-1 to No. 14 Edmond Santa Fe in the first game of the day.

"We play well at times and not so well at other times," SaberCats coach Craig Troxell said. "Very inconsistent play across the board."

Southmoore played without its three starters in the lineup against the Wolves. Two of them were benched after missing the team bus to the game Saturday morning.

Tre Edwards, the teams top hitter, is still suffering from post concussions symptoms and will sit out until he can pass his concussion test.

Even with out the No. 1, 2, 3 batters in the lineup, the Cats kept the game close. After falling behind 3-0 in second inning, they closed the gap to 3-1. In the fifth they had two runners on but a base-running mistake ended the scoring threat.

After playing a pair of games with Lawton this week, the SaberCats will not play again until April 19 against Westmoore at Deer Creek. Troxell is looking for his team to get back to the basics when they do take the field.

"Show up on time, do things right, and compete," Troxell said. "That's not too much to ask."

With the Mayor's Cup tied at 1-1, Moore took the field against Edmond Memorial in the night cap. The Lions played hard, but fell 8-1.

"Started out well and fell off after some mistakes," MHS coach Tony Borum said. "Over all not bad. Just needed to hit the ball better."

Moore got solid games from Austin Bright, Colin Webb, Will Sprayberry and Ryan Lujan in the loss.

The Lions don't play again until April 15 and 16 in back to back games with Yukon.

"I want them to keep playing hard and get better as the season plays out so we can be our best at regional and state tournaments," Borum said.
