Waxahachie 11, Lindale 1

WAXAHACHIE — The Lindale Eagles couldn't prevent Waxahachie from completing a two-game sweep in their best-of-three Class 4A bi-district playoff series.

The Eagles were stopped 11-1 on Saturday after falling 3-0 on Friday night.

The loss gives Lindale a 16-9 mark for the season.

"We struggled scoring runs at times (this season), but we've been good defensively and pitching," Lindale coach Russell Bowker said. "It didn't work out today. We propably had more errors today than we had all season.

We just got ourselves in a hole and it kind of snowballed from there. The effort from our kids was not an issue."

Tate Coomer drove in the Eagles run with an RBI single in the sixth.

Waxahachie advances to face Mt. Pleasant next week in the area round.
