East Webster falls to Ackerman, 6-1

The East Webster Wolverines have seen their fair share of top-flight
pitching the last two games.

Colby Eaves, a member of the Jackson Clarion-Ledger’s Dandy Dozen
baseball team, fired a one-hitter against the Wolverines on Saturday,
leading Nanih Waiya to a 6-3 win. Then on Monday night, Ackerman’s
Dakota Brasher tossed a two-hitter as the Indians took a key 6-1
district win over East Webster.

“We really got a good game pitching out of Tyler Doss (against
Ackerman), but we just made some errors behind him,” said EW head
coach Wes Johnson. “They scored four runs in one inning.”

That big inning was the third, giving AHS a 4-0 lead. The Indians
added two runs in the fourth, before East Webster picked up a single
run in the sixth. Cody McKee and McKinley Hollenhead each had singles
for the Wolverines in the game.

East Webster had to work to manufacture each of its three runs
against Nanih Waiya.

“We scored all three runs on squeeze plays,” Johnson said. “We got
plenty of runners on base, we just had a hard time getting the hit to
get them in.”

East Webster hosts Ackerman on Friday, before visiting county rival
Eupora on Monday. After visiting West Lowndes on Friday, April 19,
the Wolverines will play Pisgah on the following Monday in a district
make-up game that could become a determining factor in which three
teams from the district qualify for the playoffs.

Currently Ackerman has one loss, Madison St. Joe two and Eupora and
East Webster three each.

The Lady Wolverines posted a big 15-4 win over Eupora last week to
move to 3-0 in district play.

East Webster was scheduled to visit Hamilton on Tuesday, before
traveling to Ackerman on Thursday in two more district games.

The Lady Wolverines will then close out the regular season by hosting
Eupora on Monday for a 6 p.m. varsity game and Winona at the same
time on Tuesday. East Webster is a top contender to earn one of the
two spots from the district for the MHSAA Class 2A State Playoffs
that will begin in two weeks.
