Highland Park - 14; Forney- 3

Winning Pitcher: Evan Blakeley, Highland Park High School, Dallas, Texas

"... Forney came into Scotland Yard last Friday night looking to play the role of spoiler and they did take the early lead with a run in the top of the second inning. Forney pitcher Chris Blackmon doubled off the wall and then scored on an RBI single by Jordan Elder to start the second inning off Highland Park's winning pitcher Evan Blakeley.

The Scot offense responded with a three-run bottom of the second... Forney came right back in the third with a pair of runs. Blakeley racked up three strikeouts in the inning, but also surrendered three walks that helped tie the game at 3-3 with just one out. Blakeley showed his fire by striking out the final two batters to end the threat... Blakeley continued his rocking and firing in the top of the fourth, setting the stage for a six-run Highland Park explosion."
