The boys, on the other hand, had pretty much had their way with the Coolidge Bears from the onset of the game.

Thatcher had one run in the first but could get no one home in the second nor the third innings. But the Eagles' bats erupted in the fourth inning, bringing seven runners across the plate to gain an 8-0 lead going into the fifth and what would be the final inning where the Eagles added two more runs, 10-0.

Junior left-handed pitcher Jasher Moffett only allowed two hits in the game.

The Eagles now sit 6-5 overall and #3 in Region 3A South Central with a 4-2 record.
