Doyline goes 1-2 in tournament

HAYNESVILLE — The Doyline Panthers went 1-2 over the weekend in the Haynesville Tournament.

Friday, the Panthers lost a pair of games, 15-0 to North Webster and 6-3 to Haynesville, before beating Homer, 7-1 on Saturday.

"Saturday was the bright spot of the weekend," Doyline head coach John Austin said. "Our defense was better, but our bats just haven't got rolling yet. We hit the ball, it is just right at people, and so far they haven't missed too much."

Peyton Goener started the game for Doyline and took the win to improve his record to 2-0. Luke Watson pitched in relief and turned in a couple of scoreless innings.

Jesse Morado, Robert Stephens and Peyton Goerner all singled and doubled. Gage Brunson and Michael Augustine had doubles and Cole Lullig added a single.

In the first game on Friday, North Webster beat Doyline, 15-0. James Gaynor took the loss.

"They beat us for the third time in a row," Austin said. "They hit the ball well, but after two times of getting beat pretty good by them, my boys just didn't come to play. It is hard to get up for that kind of game."

In the second game on Friday, the Panthers played better despite losing 6-3 to Haynesville.

"We woke up a little against Haynesville," Austin said. "Gage Brunson pitched this game and did well. He had seven strike outs and pitched the whole game. Our pitching and defense was better, just not much offense."

Jesse Morado had two singles and Peyton Goerner had a double.
