Mayor’s Cups stays in Edmond

MOORE — Edmond took home the annual Mayor’s Cup Saturday after winning two of the three games played between the schools in Moore and Edmond at the Bricktown Ballpark.

Moore fell to Edmond North 105 in the opener. But coach Tony Borum liked what he saw from his Lions.

“I thought they played hard and fought the entire game,” Borum said. “I think the players enjoyed the atmosphere and was excited to play in such a nice ballpark. It may have played a little in the outcome but all in all we played hard.”

Southmoore faced Edmond Memorial in the afternoon title. It took all nine innings for the contest to be decided, but in the end, it was the Bulldogs who prevailed 5-4.

With the score tied 4-4 n the bottom of the ninth inning with the Dogs loaded the bases. Reece Garvie was then hit by a pitch, which allowed Jared Jones to score the game-winning run.

“We were better in some spots, worse in others,” Southmoore coach Craig Troxell said. “We haven’t been able to all play good at one time. It’s a team sport. The atmosphere and size of stadium didn’t affect the outcome at all. Both teams have the same challenges. Either you can adapt or you can’t.”

In the night cap, Westmoore prevented the sweep when it blasted Edmond Santa Fe 14-4.

“The guys played a solid all around game,” Westmoore coach Jarod Freeman said. “We were aggressive in the right spots and did not force anything offensively and we blew the game open late.”

The Jaguars got solid games from starting pitcher Josh Stevenson, who kept Memorial at bay until Westmoore’s bats exploded in the later innings.

Offensively the Jags collected 18 hits, with Deshawn Lookout leading the way with four hits.

As a team, Westmoore seemed to thrived in the uniqueness of the Mayor’s Cup environment.
