The Wolverines clinched division, earned a bye and gained an extra week before entering playoffs but they made a strong showing when they got started May 1. The Wolverines shut out East Union, 10-0, to take a lead in the series with Derek Jones getting the win on the mound. Jones helped himself with multiple hits including a double and John Wofford Williams and Chase Keller also recorded multiple hits in the effort. The win put the Wolverines on the road Friday where things didn’t go their way. “We went to East Union a little flat,” said coach Wes Johnson of the Wolverines 4-8 loss to the Urchins. “They have a good team and we didn’t play well there.” The loss set up a must-win situation for the Wolves on Saturday and they responded with an 8-3 win to advance to the next round. “I’m proud of the way our guys stepped up Saturday with a freshman (Cody Boland) on the mound,” Johnson said. “He did a great job and we gave him enough support to survive.” The Wolverines will be back in action Friday hosting Mantachie at 6 p.m. and Game Two will be played Saturday at 2 p.m. on the road. If a third game is needed, it will be played Monday at 7 p.m. in Cumberland. Lady Wolves sweep Lady Mustangs The Lady Wolverines made short work of the Mantachie Lady Mustangs in their first round of playoffs, besting them 9-0, 12-5, to advance to the second round. The East Webster girls zipped through their series with Baldwyn, sweeping the Lady Bearcats, 10-1, 9-5. The Lady Woverines will take on Hatley for the North Half title.
Wolves, ladies still on playoff road
