The Cooper Cougars were unable to hand Midland High their first district loss in a match up between two of 2-5A's top four teams.

The Bulldogs would jump out to an early one run lead, but an RBI single by Austen Wade would double Midland's advantage at 3-1.

Cooper pitcher David Ruot would get a strike-out a short time later to help limit the damage. That is until the Bulldogs bit again, this time with a single by Travis Wilbanks to drive in another run.

Midland High would cruise from there to a 8-2 victory, and take sole possession of first place in the district.
