WHITESBORO, Texas — It’s not often you can win a game and get no-hit at the same time.

WHITESBORO, Texas — It’s not often you can win a game and get no-hit at the same time.

However, the Lone Grove Longhorns aren’t going to be complaining about being in this category anytime soon, especially after Saturday afternoon. 

Down 1-0 in the bottom of the sixth, the Longhorns scrapped across two runs to claim a narrow 2-1 victory over the Sulphur Bulldogs in the consolation championship at the Red River Bash at the Field of Dreams in Whitesboro. 

Through five innings of play, neither team was able to get much going on the offensive end, as solid pitching and clutch defensive plays set the tone for both teams.

Gavin Perry tied the game at 1-1 when he scored on a passed ball, before Montana Stafford was allowed to score following a throwing error at first base.

Josh Watterson gave Sulphur a 1-0 lead in the top half of the sixth when his hard ground ball resulted in an error, allowing Dawson Muck to score.

Sulphur finished with four hits in the game, while the Longhorns were no-hit on the day.

Watterson allowed just one earned run on the day with two walks and eight strikeouts.

Braxton Campo got the win for the Longhorns on the mound, throwing a complete game effort allowing one run (0 earned) on four hits with two walks and eight strikeouts.

Lone Grove improved to 3-2 on the season with the win, while the Bulldogs moved to 1-6 overall.

Lone Grove is back in action Thursday March 15 at home against Plainview at 4:30 p.m., while Sulphur is at home Monday afternoon in a district contest against Ardmore beginning at 4:30 p.m.

The Bulldogs and Tigers will then play the return leg Tuesday.
