FORT WORTH — After finishing third in District 8-5A, Lake Dallas pulled off another postseason upset to keep its season alive by defeating Fort Worth Arlington Heights 4-0 Friday night at Fort Worth Brewer.

The victory completed a sweep of the Yellowjackets in the area round of the Class 5A playoffs after the Falcons won Game 1 6-1 on Thursday night.

The Game 2 victory was spearheaded by a dominant pitching performance from Ben Price, who threw a shutout and allowed just four hits. The Falcons scored all four of their runs in the top of the seventh thanks to a RBI single from Jonah Webb, a bases-loaded walk from Kyle York and a two-run single from Connor Perry.

Webb, who hit in the No. 9 hole for Lake Dallas, was the game’s only player to finish with more than one hit. He went 2-for-2 with an RBI and a walk in the win.

The Falcons advance to next week’s regional quarterfinals to take on Burleson Centennial, which swept Little Elm.

PRINCETON — Andrew Lyon racked up 11 strikeouts and gave up just three hits to lead Sunnyvale to a dominant victory over Aubrey in Game 2 of a best-of-three area-round series.
