COUSHATTA – The Lakeside Warriors were quick and efficient in dismantling Red River High School on their way to a 14-0 win over the Bulldogs Tuesday night.
The win gives Lakeside a record of 7-6 for the year and a 1-0 mark in district play.
The game was never in doubt as Lakeside hung 10 runs on the Bulldogs in the bottom of the first inning to make the score 10-0.
That gave Lakeside starter Trent Geis plenty of breathing room to calmly carve up the Red River lineup.
Geis tossed three scoreless innings before giving way to Braydon Jones and Luke Griffith who both tossed one scoreless inning.
In the batter’s box, when the Warriors weren’t being walked, they were squaring balls up.
Josh Prince will haunt the Red River pitching staff’s dreams after going 3-3 with a triple, double, single and 2 RBI.
Prince, who has homered this year, finished a home run away from hitting for the cycle.
Coulson White had a 2 RBI double for the Warriors, followed by Cameron Gray who had an RBI double.
Logan Clark and Tanner Page rounded out the offense with RBI singles.
“We’re giving signs that we’re beginning to wake up,” Lakeside head coach Bob Gray said. “We hit the ball well and did what we had to do to win.”
Next up for the Warriors is a much tougher test against the Calvary Cavaliers.
That will be a home game for Lakeside, with first pitch slated for 6 p.m.
“I still think our best baseball is ahead of us,” Gray said. “The bats are starting to wake up for us. Hopefully they’re even more awake tomorrow against Calvary.”
