ROWLETT — The Mustangs finished off the regular season in fine fashion, beating Lakeview Centennial 4-2 on April 30 and then blanking Rowlett 2-0 the next day at the Eagles’ home field.

Those two wins left Sachse at 11-3 in District 11-6A, good enough for second place behind Rockwall (12-2) and setting up a bi-district date this week with 12-6A’s Killeen Harker Heights. The first of that best-of-three series is 5 p.m Friday at Harker Heights, with Game 2 set for 1:30 p.m Saturday at Sachse. Game 3, if needed, will be played 30 minutes after the second game concludes.

“They’ve come together and are starting to form a family,” head coach Chris Burrow said. “They are starting to trust each other.”

He added, (All of 12-6A) is going to be good, so it’s one of those things where we have to play our game and go at it.”

The past Friday, the Mustangs’ “game” was to combine good pitching from Logan Worswick, strong defense and one solid inning at the plate to produce victory.

Sachse scored both runs Friday in the top of the fifth, which began with Chance Merritt hitting the first pitch for a double. Luke Collis then replaced him as a courtesy runner, and moved to third on Alex Bush’s ground out.

Blake Dean then doubled to left to score Collis, and later moved to third on a fielding error on a hit by Connor Anderson. Dean scored when Brett Carter singled to right.

Worswick and the defense took over from there to keep the Eagles off the board.

“He was throwing strikes and we got some timely hits,” Burrow said.

He added, “It does a lot for us to come in here and win a close game. It’s good.”
