EAGLES DROP CHAMPIONSHIP GAME TO CORAL PARK, 7-2

A five-run third inning lifted Coral Park to a 7-2 victory over Southwest in the championship game of the gold bracket in the HSBN March Madness tournament at Pompano Four Fields park. One day after knocking off Pace, Dade’s number one team and the state’s number two team, the Eagles (10-9) managed only four hits off sophomore William Silva, who had pitched only an inning and two-thirds all season and entered the game with a 16.80 ERA. Down 6-0, Southwest got on the scoreboard in the bottom of the third inning when Justin Worley doubled, advanced to third on a ground out by Lorenzo Hernandez and scored on an Erick Orbeta ground ball to short. The Eagles’ only other run came in the bottom of the sixth when Jorge Tejeda walked, courtesy runner Matthew Sprinkle raced to second on a wild pitch and scored on an Eddie Sierra double. One bright spot for Southwest was the varsity pitching debut of sophomore Jordan Worley, who threw four strong innings allowing only two hits and one run.
