Coleton Mathew’s bases loaded single into right field in the bottom of the seventh scored the game winner as third-ranked Davis County edged PCM (Monroe) 2-1 in a class 2A quarterfinal round game.
“We’ve had some timely hits all year and got a senior in a pressure situation. Couldn’t ask for a better person to be at the plate,” Davis County coach Todd White says. “A real, big time hit.”
White’s team rallied from a 1-0 deficit in the sixth inning. “Our kids were a little nervous and we didn’t capitalize on a few things early,” White says. “It was a tight ballgame, all the way through the end.”
PCM broke a scoreless tie in the top of the sixth by scoring a run on a throwing error, but the Mustangs could only manage one hit off Davis County starting pitcher Calvin Mathews.
“We thought we had to hold them down to a low-scoring game and we were able to do that,” says PCM coach Shaun Hudnut. “…They’re a great team and we’re happy with what we did tonight — making it one heck of a ballgame.”
