Going into the game, the Panthers were facing a "win and you're in" game and Padron tossed his best game of the season.  The game was played in Goldthwaite to accommodate both teams as each had players competing in Regional Track meets in San Angelo and Whitney. Earlier in the day, Padron captured 1st place in the triple jump and will advance to the state meet in Austin.  Later he suffered a pulled hamstring in the 4x100 relay, and still competed in the 300m hurdles before making the long trek to Goldthwaite to the mound against May.

Fidel Garcia from Grulla HS threw a one-hitter against Progreso. The freshman tallied 14 K while only allowing 1 hit and 2 walks.

Jared Boulden from Newman Smith HS earned a 3-1 win on Friday with 6.2 IP. The junior struck out 10, allowed 1 hit, 2 BB and 1 run.
