With three rounds of high school baseball playoffs in the books, two Denton-area teams remain standing after No. 1 Argyle and Lake Dallas each swept their opponents over the weekend to advance to the regional semifinals.

The Eagles put on a dominant performance and completely dismantled Brownwood while outscoring the Lions 33-1 in two games at Glen Rose. Lake Dallas, on the other hand, pulled off another upset by defeating No. 12 Burleson Centennial 1-0 in Game 1 and 7-3 in Game 2.

After finishing the regular season with a losing record, Lake Dallas is now 20-17 after going 6-1 through its first seven playoff games.

The Falcons will look to continue their postseason run of success this week when they take on Lubbock Monterey in a best-of-three series at Abilene Christian. Game 1 will be at 6 p.m. Friday, Game 2 will be at 11 a.m. Saturday and Game 3, if needed, will follow.

Argyle, which is now 35-1-1 on the season, will also continue its march toward state in Abilene as the Eagles take on Canyon in a best-of-three series at ACU. Game 1 is at 8:30 p.m. Wednesday, Game 2 is at 6 p.m. Thursday and Game 3, if needed, is at 8:30 p.m. Thursday.

Stay tuned to the Denton Record-Chronicle later this week for a full preview on both series.
