GAME STORY: Coronado catches fire late to snap Wylie’s 11-game win streak

HERMLEIGH — Kaylee Philipp and Bailey Buck sparked a two-run rally to pull Wylie even with Lubbock Coronado after five innings Friday, but the Lady Mustangs erupted for five runs in the seventh to take a 7-2 win over the Lady Bulldogs in Game 1 of a best-of-three Region I-5A quarterfinal series.

Starting pitcher Jaci-Mia Rivera led off the top of the seventh with a double and came around to score on Riley Flores’ inside-the-park home run to make the score 4-2. Bianca Raney added an RBI single later in the inning to push Coronado’s lead to three runs, before Natalie Gomez landed the final blow in the form of a two-run double.

The loss snapped an 11-game winning streak for Wylie, which fell to 17-15 overall.
