Senior League to face Odessa in opener
PECOS, July 15, 1999 -- The Pecos Senior League All Stars will face the
Odessa Floyd Gwin All-Stars in the first game of the Section 1 subsectional
tournament, set for Friday evening in Lubbock.
The game will be played at 6 p.m. at Lubbock Western Field, with the
winner advancing to the semifinals of the double-elimination tournament
at 8:30 p.m. on Saturday.
The losers will play at 6 p.m. Saturday, with the winner there facing
the loser of Saturday's second game between the District 1 (Amarillo) and
District 2 (Lubbock) champs in a 7 p.m. contest on Sunday. The championship
game is set for 6 p.m. on Monday with a second game, if needed, at 8:30
p.m. that night.
Pecos went undefeated in winning the District 4 title, beating San Angelo
Western, 15-1, San Angelo Northern, 25-0, San Angelo Lake View/Tri County
11-4 and San Angelo Southern, 13-2.
Floyd Gwin also went through their tournament undefeated, routing a
pair of Midland teams while taking two close games from Odessa Kellus Turner
to earn their berth in the subsectional.
Unlike district play, losses in the subsectional will carry over to
the sectional finals, scheduled for next week against the winner of the
subsectional that includes teams from the Abilene and Dallas/Fort Worth
areas. Pecos' Junior League All-Stars came through the loser's bracket
last season to reach the sectional finals, but were beaten by an Abilene
team that had gone undefeated through their tournament.
Also playing in tournaments this weekend are Pecos' three girls softball
teams. The 10 and under, 11-12 and 13-14 year old squads will be competing
at the University of Texas-Permian Basin softball complex in Odessa beginning
Opening ceremonies are set for Friday afternoon, and each team is scheduled
to play at least one game on Friday.
