The Abilene High Eagles remain atop the District 2-5A standings after their win over Lubbock Coronado at Blackburn Field on Tuesday.

Eagles pitcher Payton Coffman would get some  help from his defense in the early innings with a 6-3 double play to end the top of the first with no score.

Coronado would be the first to find home plate though, with a two-run blast by Tyler Blackwell to put the Mustangs up 7-2.

Coffman would settle down from there and shutdown the Mustangs the rest of the way. In the meantime the Eagles offense would come to life and put up seven runs to knock off the Mustangs

Up next for the Eagles will be road match-up with San Angelo Central on Saturday.
