Class 2A, district 11
Top seed Northside thrashes Out-of-Door
ST. PETERSBURG — Heading into Tuesday's semifinal against Out-of-Door (3-14), top-seeded Northside Christian's (21-2) main goal was to just stay focused.
That's exactly what they did, dismantling the Thunder 15-0. The Thunder had some difficulties with control early, and were quickly down 6-0 in the first as the Mustangs scored on four hits with countless passed balls.
The Out-of-Door defense continued to make errors, the pitching continued to falter and the Mustang hits kept on coming.
"We are one step closer to our goal and that is winning a district championship," Northside coach John Anderson said. "This is one of the best teams that we have had in a long time."
Jessica Anderson struck out 12, walked one and allowed one hit for Northside. The Mustangs face Shorecrest, a 7-6 winner over St. Stephen's, in Thursday's final.
