Area prep roundup: Mountaineers rally past Cats on diamond



Morris Innovative boys 5, Chattooga 2: The Tigers never trailed, but they took the lead for good on Adrian Love’s goal early in the second half, when Danny Alonzo made five saves to keep them in control.

Felipe Barrientos and Eduardo Padilla each scored twice and assisted on another goal for Morris Innovative (4-3, 3-3 Region 7-2A), while Misael Esparza had two assists and Love added one assist.

Morris Innovative was up 3-1 before Chattooga cut the lead to 3-2, but the Tigers struck for two goals late in the match.

“There was a lot of fast play by both teams,” Morris Innovative coach Ernie Dempsey said. “It was really kind of an exciting game, more than I expected — I expected both teams to play a lot slower and more patient, but both teams played wide open. It was good. We’re definitely improving.”

Morris Innovative, a second-year program, will take on a local foe for the first time when it hosts Murray County at 7 p.m. today at Harmon Field.

“We’re expecting to see a really good effort out of (Murray County),” Dempsey said.

Chattooga girls 5, Morris Innovative 0: Itzel Moreno had 15 saves in goal for the Lady Tigers (0-7, 0-6) in the road loss.


Northwest girls 153, Murray County 185: Marlee Bingham’s 10-over-par 46 was good for medalist honors and led the Lady Bruins to the nine-hole victory at Indian Trace in Chatsworth.

Also scoring for Northwest were Alicia Cole (52) and Dallas Coker (55). Also participating for the Lady Bruins was Emily McKinney (57).

Murray County got counting rounds from Amber Lewis (59) and Katherine Baynes (61). Rebekah Wildes and Emily Lewis each shot a 65, although only one round counted toward the team score.


Coahulla Creek JV boys 3, Northwest 2: The Colts won their season-opening match at Edwards Park via a singles victory from No. 2 Austin Lansing, 9-7 in pro-set play, plus a sweep of doubles as No. 1 Salim Mdeiway and Jacob White won 8-3 and No. 2 Cristian Mascote and Austin Riddlebarger won 9-7.

The Bruins took two singles courts, getting victories from No. 1 Santi Angel, 8-3, and No. 3 James Zong, 8-2.

Coahulla Creek JV girls 3, Northwest 2: The Lady Colts also won their first match of the year, sweeping singles with victories from No. 1 Alex Wilbanks, 8-4, No. 2 Sydney Storey, 8-6, and No. 3 Kennedy Chandler, 8-6.
