YUMA, Ariz. – Both the Kofa Kings and Gila Ridge Hawks baseball programs are looking to pull themselves back in the Section 7 hunt, as both teams have faced their respective struggles this season.
The Kings themselves were coming off a tough loss to Cibola the day prior and were looking for redemption as the road team in this battle. Kofa would get off to a good start in the top half of the first inning, notching in a run to break the scoring ice.
But, the Gila Ridge Hawks would respond with three runs of their own in the bottom half. The Hawk’s Seth Hart would be a big part of that, as he would drive in a 2 run RBI to help solidify that cause.
From there, both teams would score a combined 12 runs in what would become a shoot-out. But the Hawks would come out on top in this one, 9 to 7.
