Eagles take both in double header vs Comanches

March 19, 2012

The wind, the dirt, and the Sanford Fritch Eagles swept into Stinnett Saturday and handily took care of the Comanches in both games of a non-District double header. SF won the first game in seven innings 15-4 and run ruled the Tribe in five innings in a football score 31-7. The wind was definitely a factor causing fielders to misjudge fly balls, a hitter’s dream and outfielder’s nightmare. The Comanches also had several players missing due to another school function. Many of the Eagles’ runs were off WT High errors and unearned.
