Broncos sweep rival Bray-Doyle

CENTRAL HIGH — It was an offensive showcase tuesday night when Central High swept Bray-Doyle 18-6 in the first game and 9-7 in the second.

Both games started off sloppy. Fielders had trouble reading the ball off the grass, baserunners were picked off, and the umpires made some bewildering calls. Chaos reigned. With the Donkeys leading 6-5 in the first game after three innings, Central High grabbed seven runs in the fourth. Bray-Doyle coach Joe Matthews pulled Cody Matthews in favor of Cody Watson. It helped stall the Bronchos offense, but the Bronchos’ bats wouldn’t stay dormant. They scored six runs in the seventh to balloon the scoreline to blowout porportions.

“We started with not much intensity,” Central High coach Jeff Jones said. “You can’t do that if you’re going to stay at a high level.”

Austen DeWitt was one of the many offensive stars for the Bronchos. He had two doubles at the plate, but one of his biggest plays came from behind it. When the Donkeys were still tasting upset in their mouths, DeWitt tagged out Dallas Lilles in a close play at home. He thought it played a significant role in Central High pulling out the victory.

“It was a big turning point,” DeWitt said. “Stuff like that can change a ball game.”

Bray-Doyle shot out to a 4-1 lead in the second game and had a 7-5 lead going into the sixth inning, but again the Bronchos came back to win. Bray-Doyle coach Joe Matthews was happy with the way the Donkeys started the game, but was disappointed in the problems they had fielding.

“We got on top of them quick and fast. I don’t think they knew what they were getting into,” Matthews said. “Our errors killed us.”

Both teams will have some time to prepare before playing in the Red Dirt Classic on Thursday.
