After being swept in a three-game series by Tallulah Academy, the Glenbrook Apaches needed to play well against their oldest rivals, Claiborne Academy.
They did just that, scrapping it out offensively and getting great pitching to take down the Rebels in game one of a three-game series, 6-5.
Glenbrook trailed most of the game, until a phenomenal fifth inning got the Apaches the lead they so desparately needed.
With runners in scoring position, Trevor McLean came through with a clutch single to tie the game at 5-5. Then, Tyler Perryman stepped up and delivered the go-ahead run with a single.
Starter Nick Mourad tossed six, strong innings for Glenbrook, striking out seven batters and allowing three hits. Mourad turned the ball over to senior Colt Wilson in the seventh. Wilson took the ball with confidence, sitting the Rebels down to earn the savevand regain some momentum for Glenbrook as the Apaches barrel down the home stretch.
McLean led Glenbrook, going 3-3 with 2 RBIs, followed by Mourad who went 2-4 with a double. Perryman had the one single and 2 RBIs, Cameron Barnett went 2-4 and Cade Clemons and Parker Christy came through with singles for the Apaches.
Glenbrook will try to make it a series sweep when they travel to Homer Friday for a doubleheader at Claiborne Academy.
