Glenbrook Apaches swing past Union Christian Academy Lions

by Minden Press-Herald

Fresh off a sweep of district foe River Oaks, the Glenbrook Apaches kept rolling Monday, defeating Union Christian Academy 15-5.

It was a momentum building win as the Apaches try to gear up for a pivotal series with Prairie View Academy.

Glenbrook brought the bats to the ballpark in this game, piling on hit after hit against UCA pitching.

Nick Mourad sat down the Lions in order in the top of the first inning, bringing the Apaches to the plate.

From there, it would be Colt Wilson stepping up to deliver a mammoth blast over the left field wall, a three run dinger.

The Lions came back with three runs to make it competitive at 5-3 for a while, but in the fifth the Apaches were back at the dish, tacking on 9 runs and putting themselves safely ahead.

Colt Wilson had the performance of the day at the plate, leading the way going 2-3 with a homerun and 4 RBI. Cameron Mathews had a single and an RBI, as did Tyler Perryman and Clay Simonton. Caleb Wilson went 2-4 with a pair of singles and an RBI, Austin Jones went 2-2 with two singles and Mason Hood added a single to cap off the hit parade.

Nick Mourad was the winning pitcher for Glenbrook. Mourad pitched two innings, giving up one hit and three runs.

Glenbrook (10-7, 3-3) is now facing a situation where they likely need a sweep of their three game series with Prairie View Academy to make the Playoffs.

That series begins today with a 6 p.m. game at Apache Field.
