Payton Coffman would get the Eagles going on the mound in the first two innings by keeping the Panthers off the base pathes with some strike-outs and help from his defense.
Then in the bottom half of the second, the Eagles would find home plate when Justin Mendoz bounced one in front of the dish. The throw from the Permian catcher would be wide, and allow McKendrie Morrison to come home to put Abilene High up 1-0.
The Panthers would threaten to get that run back in the top of the third, but some heads up defense by Coffman would end the threat with a throwout at home.
Then in the bottom of the third the Eagles would strike again. This time Johnathon Bryant would ground into a fielder's choice to bring home Derek Scott to put Abilene High up 2-0.
The Eagles' bats would explode a bit later, and eventually result in a 12-2 mercy-rule victory over the Permian Panthers.
