MEEKER | After a busy week last week, the Cowboys wrapped it up Thursday hosting the Moffat County Bulldogs in a double header featuring varsity followed by JV. This game, not featured in MaxPreps, is considered a foundation game by CHSAA, giving the boys an opportunity to play without going against innings played or pitches thrown.
The varsity came out on top winning 11-9.
“Liam Deming opened the game pitching and got in a good inning of work,” commented head coach Donald Blazon.
John Hampton Hightower finished the game and sealed the victory.
The JV game went eight innings after regulation play ended in a tie.
“The boys found the will to play hard and want to win,” commented Blaxon; “Everyone got in and had at least one at bat and got to play defense.”
Logan Pozorski opened the game on the mound then Jake Blazon took the team for the next six innings, he had no walks for the evening.
Wednesday the Rangely Panthers come to Meeker for a varsity and JV double header which is scheduled to begin at 4 p.m. The team will be in Olathe Saturday for a double header varsity game.
“Right now we are sitting about fourth in the league,” said Blazon, “post season playoffs will work much like volleyball. The top 24 teams according to RPI will make it to playoffs, the top eight will host a three team bracket. Winner will take it all and go to state.”
RPI has not been released but should be out once the majority of teams have played 6-7 games.
