2A baseball: Williams shines in every way for Northside Christian

Class 2A

Mustangs' Williams does it all in victory

NAPLES — Northside Christian did not simply advance to the region semifinals on the back of Robbie Williams. The senior used his glove, arm and bat to lead his team to Tuesday's 8-3 upset over Community School.

Williams pitched a complete game, led off with a hit and belted a two-run homer in the third as the Mustangs never let up.

Mustangs coach Raul Hernandez said Williams had his best game of the season.

"The face that it's a regional quarterfinal and it's a do-or-die situation makes it just a phenomenal performance," Hernandez said.

The Mustangs (12-14), who next play Friday at Shorecrest, ended the Seahawks' 10-game winning streak.

After reaching on a hit and scoring in the first, Williams homered to deep left-center in the third to make it 3-1. Dalton Hughes' two-run double and Jeffrey Heinicka's RBI triple were key in a four-run sixth.
