Aric Wilson and Cooper Ridgeway lead College Park to 5-0 win in seven innings on Tuesday
Both the College Park Cavaliers and Summer Creek Bulldogs put runners aboard on Tuesday, but it was College Park that was able to take advantage, pulling out a 5-0 win at Summer Creek High School.
Tyler Scataglia was in control on the bump. College Park managed just one hit off of the Bulldogs pitcher, who allowed two earned runs, walked five and struck out 11 during his 6 1/3 innings of work. Scataglia ended up on the wrong side of the pitching decision, charged with the loss.
Cooper Ridgeway recorded the win for College Park . Ridgeway had an impressive outing against Summer Creek’s lineup. He pitched five shutout innings, struck out five, walked three and gave up no hits. College Park closer Chase Burchett put away the final six outs to record the save.
College Park went up for good in the third, scoring two runs on a two-run triple by Aric Wilson. College Park increased its lead with three runs in the seventh. A ground out scored Washburn for the inning’s first run. That was followed up by Wilson’s single, plating Daylon Farmer.
#2 College Park will return to their home field and try to make it four in a row when they face #5 Kingwood on Friday at 7pm.

Strengthened by struggles, The Woodlands set to open extended postseason campaign
It wasn’t always pretty, but The Woodlands is in the playoffs.
The Highlanders picked up a key win against Summer Creek last week to help them clinch the fourth seed in District 16-6A, setting up a one-game bi-district playoff at 7 p.m. Thursday at Klein.
“We had an outstanding run last year, when people picked us third or fourth in the district and we were able to win the district championship (and make the area playoffs), and this year we had pretty much one starter back with Chris (Andritsos),” coach Ron Eastman said. “And you had three teams … with the strongest teams they’ve ever had in school history, so it was the perfect storm for us.
“The kids worked hard all season and kept grinding. It would have been real easy for them to quit, when we got down with a losing record, but they continued to fight and grind, and I’m just real proud and happy for them that they were able to accomplish our goal of getting in the playoffs.”
Eastman called their 7-0 win over the Bulldogs, who finished one game behind The Woodlands in 16-6A, the Highlanders’ most complete game of the season. click here for complete story
