Football season is nearly three months away but Fridays score between the Angels and Longhorns resembled that of a fall Friday on the gridiron under the lights. The Angels held off Tarrs Longhorns 21-14 in a Little League game where 30 base hits were recorded between the two teams.
The Angels came out swinging in the first inning to the tune of 12 runs. But the Longhorns had tied the score at 13 after three.
Manager Brad Reece was pleased that his team had their hitting britches on. He was happy to leave the park with a win.
Our kids swung the bats really well, said Reece. It was a matter of trying to outscore them. You can never be up by enough runs to feel comfortable against a team like the Longhorns. Their whole line-up, from top to bottom, can hit the ball.
The base paths looked like a merry-go-round for five innings. Gabe Reece would circle the bases four times in addition to collecting three base hits.
Asa Lewis added a pair of doubles and two singles. Mason Bragg laced a pair of singles and a triple. Dylan Simcox just missed hitting for the cycles. He had a triple, double and a single in four trips to the plate. Nathaniel Aschenback was 2 for 2 with a walk in addition to picking up the win on the mound.
