Eagle seeking wins to remain atop standings
PECOS, March 30, 2001 - First place will be on the line for the Pecos Eagle
girls softball team tonight, and could be on the line for the Eagle boys
as well, as they host the Canutillo Golden Eagles while the girls play
on the road against the San Elizario Eagles.
Pecos goes to San Eli for a 5 p.m. game, which had been scheduled to
close out the first half of the District 2-4A season for the Eagles until
Tuesday's rain-out against El Paso Mountain View. Instead, Pecos will try
to open up a gap between themselves and San Elizario this afternoon, while
the host Eagles will hope to knock Pecos out of first place in the 2-4A
standings for the first time in 2½ years with a victory.
Pecos is 3-0 in district and 6-9 on the season following last Friday's
15-0 win at home over Canutillo, while San Eli bounced back from their
loss to Fabens a week ago to down Canutillo this past Tuesday, by a 16-8
score. San Eli rallied from a 4-0 deficit after two innings, with Valerie
Soto getting the win.
Pecos' Stephanie Herrera one-hit Canutillo a week ago and coach Tammy
Walls said she would start today's game against San Eli.
Pecos and San Elizario are tied for first in the 2-4A baseball standings,
both at 2-0, after the Eagles won at Fabens this past Tuesday, 9-4, while
San Eli defeated Clint, 10-7. Meanwhile, Canutillo is 1-1 after routing
El Paso Mountain View by a 12-0 score.
Carlos Torres got the win for the Golden Eagles, whose main problem
so far this season has been a lack of hitting. For tonight, Eagles' coach
Bubba Williams said, "The one that pitched against us here last year (Julian
Lopez) was a sophomore. I'm expecting to see him, plus they got two kids
back from grades."
Angel Villalobos, who beat Clint a week ago, 8-5, is scheduled to start
on the mound tonight for Pecos. The senior allowed five hits and only one
unearned run, in the seventh inning.
