WOODWARD, Okla. —
The Glencoe Panthers had to win a thriller to reach the finals of the Woodward Baseball Classic on Friday. On Saturday, Glencoe lost a close game, 2-1 to the Arnett Wildcats.
“It was a good game, we just gave up a couple of unearned runs in the fifth inning,” Glencoe coach Tony Cazzelle said. “We only got three hits and they got four.”
J.K. Hadlock went the distance and took the loss. Hadlock walked two and struck out eight. Providing Glencoe’s offense were Hunter Hall with an RBI double. Jake Lazenby and Brice Williams also got hits.
“We had the opportunities to score,” Cazzelle said. “They just made plays.”
