Eagles facing another JV in tourney opener

For the second time in three tournaments this season, the Pecos Eagles began play against the home team's junior varsity squad this morning, in the Alpine Invitational Tournament.

The Eagles took on the Bucks' JV in a 9 a.m. contest at Kokernot Field. No score was available on the game at press time, but the Bucks' varsity struggled two weeks ago at the Sandhills Tournament in Monahans, allowing 23 runs to a Presidio team that was beaten the following day by the Eagles' 10-4.

Pecos had opened that tournament with a 29-0 win over Monahans' junior varsity team, which was put into the tournament after Reagan County was forced to drop out after qualifying for the Region I-2A basketball tournament. Freshman Josh Anchondo tossed a one-hitter in getting the win that day, and head coach Elias Payan said he would probably use either Anchondo or one of his other freshman pitchers, Eddie Vela or Edward Valencia, along with other reserves in this morning's game. Vela and Valencia combined to beat Brownfield last Friday in the West Texas March Classic at Midland.

Pecos also played a JV team there, but it was a tougher opponent - Midland High, whose varsity is ranked fifth in the latest Class 5A state baseball poll. The Eagles blew a three-run lead in that game, then rallied from a three-run deficit to win, 8-7, and followed that up with a 6-3 win on Tuesday at home over San Angelo Lake View, which improved their record to 9-4 on the season.

Basketball hasn't affected the Alpine Tournament the way it did the Sandhills, but changes made last year to the Class 4A districts in El Paso, which began district play this past Tuesday and continues on Friday, keeping any of those schools from playing in Alpine this year, forcing the Bucks to put their JV team into the tournament.

If Pecos wins, they'll move into an 11:30 a.m. game at Kokernot Field on Friday against the winner of today's Wimberly-Tornillo opening round game. Tornillo comes into the tournament off a 10-3 loss on Tuesday to Santa Teresa, N.M., while Pecos faced Wimberly last season on the way to taking the Alpine Tournament title, rallying from 2-0 and 6-5 deficits to defeat the Texans by a 7-6 final score. Pecos and Wimberly are the only Class 3A teams entered in this year's tournament.

If Pecos wins both today and Friday, they'll play in the tournament title game, scheduled for 4:30 p.m. on Saturday. A loss would drop the Eagles into the tournament's third place game, scheduled for a 2 p.m. start on Saturday.
