Guyer forced a tie with Keller for second place in District 5-6A by winning its fifth straight game in a 7-1 finish over Keller Fossil Ridge on Friday night.

The Wildcats, who had already secured a spot in the playoffs with a 3-0 win over Fossil Ridge on Thursday night, will play Keller at 1 p.m. Saturday at Flower Mound with the district’s No. 2 seed on the line.

“The guys are just grinding and finding ways to win,” Guyer coach Pat Watson said. “It’s sweet right now. We get to go play [Saturday] and it’s all gravy now. Our guys will be ready to go.”

Chad Aune (1-for-2, two RBIs), Jordan Beminio (2-for-4, two RBIs), Daniel Thompson (1-for-3, one RBI) and Josh Crabtree (1-for-2, one RBI) contributed offensively for Guyer, which scored four runs in the second inning and never looked back in the regular season finale.

Bristol Carson got the win on the mound after throwing six shutout innings while allowing two hits and racking up five strikeouts. Kyle Gscheidle came in to record the first out of the seventh inning before Koency Hord closed the door by getting the final two outs with just three pitches.

With the Wildcats celebrating senior night before the game, Watson was able to work all but one of his seniors into the lineup at one point or another in the win over Fossil Ridge. The highlight of the night for Guyer came in the bottom of the fifth when senior Colin Gierula, who has been sidelined with a torn ACL, executed a sacrifice bunt in his final home game despite not being able to run to first base.

“He was going to battle for a starting position,” Watson said. “It just so happened that he tore his ACL, unfortunately. I asked him if he could bunt and not run, and we asked the trainer if that would work, so it was a pretty cool thing for him to get another memory playing high school baseball like that.”

Argyle 9, Krum 0

KRUM — With the District 8-4A championship already in hand, Argyle erupted for seven combined runs in the fourth and fifth innings to end the regular season with a comfortable win over Krum.

The Bobcats (10-13-1, 4-4 district) dropped to third place in the district standings with the loss and a pair of wins from Decatur to close out the regular season.

Argyle’s Chad Ricker struck out 13 batters and only allowed two hits through six innings pitched.

The Eagles collected seven singles on the night, and Hayden Clearman finished with a game-high three RBIs. Bo Hogeboom also led the Eagles’ offense with a 2-for-4 night at the plate.

The Colony 3, Braswell 0

LITTLE ELM — Braswell needed a win against The Colony (2-10 District 8-5A) to stay alive in the playoff race. The Bengals couldn’t find any offensive rhythm, managing just one hit while being shutout in a 3-0 loss to the Cougars.

Nicholas Perry started on the mound for Braswell (5-7 in 8-5A) and seemed to be rolling along nicely until The Colony put up three runs in the sixth inning, forcing Perry to leave the game.

The Braswell offense struggled to find hits against Austin Price and Konner Carr, who teamed up to throw a one-hit shutout. Braswell left the bases loaded in the seventh inning, and Tanner Landino collected the only hit for the Bengals.

Lake Dallas 8, Ryan 1

CORINTH — Ryan had some breathing room entering the final game of the regular season when it came to qualifying for the playoffs, but Friday’s game was a must-win for Lake Dallas.

The Falcons scored eight runs in the first four innings on six hits and five Ryan errors, securing the win they needed to qualify for the playoffs.

The Lake Dallas win combined with losses from Braswell and Justin Northwest mean the Raiders and Falcons finish the regular season tied for third place in District 8-5A.

Ryan Depperschmidt tossed six innings of one-run baseball for the Falcons to outduel Ryan’s Tristan Wittau, who gave up eight runs through five innings.

Connor Perry finished the night 2-for-2 at the plate with three RBIs, including a double in the first inning to drive in the Falcons’ first run. Kyle York also had a strong night for Lake Dallas, batting 2-for-3 with two runs scored.

Johan Davila and Dylan Bivins each had two singles to lead the Ryan offense.

Liberty Christian 11, Fort Worth Nolan Catholic 0

ARGYLE — Jacob Hasty allowed just one hit through five innings of work on the mound to help Liberty Christian cruise past Fort Worth Nolan Catholic on a night when the Warriors celebrated the accomplishments of longtime coach Johnny Isom.

The Warriors nicknamed Friday night “Johnny Isom Night” to honor Isom, who is stepping down from his position as head baseball coach at the end of the season after being named the Liberty Christian athletic director.

While Hasty had an impressive pitching performance, Creighton Hansen went 1-for-2 with three RBIs while Mason Packwood went 1-for-3 with two RBIs and a home run. Pryor Thomas also had two hits and two RBIs in the win for the Warriors, who improved to 21-12-1 on the season.
