Prowlers back in 4A Region 1 Semifinals

Rematch with Vernon at Winters starts Friday


ANDREWS – The Fort Stockton High School softball team looked like they were going to romp over Levelland Saturday, after scoring five runs in the first inning of Game 2 of their best-of-three series.

The Prowlers faced three pitchers in the inning.

But the Loboettes settled down to hold the potent Prowlers scoreless the rest of the way with solid defense and pitching.

The Prowlers compensated for quiet bats with their own stellar defense to thwart Levelland rallies.

In the end, Fort Stockton won the game 5-2 to advance to the 4A Region 1 semifinals for the second straight year.

They will face the winner of the Vernon, whihc beat Brownwood 10-1 and 5-0. Vernon knocked the Prowlers out of the playoffs last year.
