CLEARWATER ― Osceola had several close losses during the regular season, which made it a dangerous No. 3 seed in the Class 7A, District 10 tournament. After easing past Dixie Hollins in the first round, the Warriors got out of a bases-loaded jam in the seventh inning to defeat second-seeded Northeast in the semifinals.Then came Friday night’s final against Mitchell. Osceola fell behind by three runs after three innings. It then scored five unanswered runs and got out of three tight spots in the final four innings to secure a 5-3 win over the Mustangs.The win not only avenges a regular-season loss to Mitchell that ended on a walk-off grand slam, but it is also the first loss for the Mustangs this season.Osceola (17-10) will host Lennard (18-6) in Wednesday’s region quarterfinal. Mitchell (25-1) will play at Braden River (15-12).“It’s amazing," Osceola junior Logan O’Brien said. “All year nobody knew about us. We’ve had some tough losses. But we came through this time."O’Brien was a big factor in the win.In the sixth inning, Osceola came back to tie the score at three when Miles Curley scored on a wild pitch from third base. With one out and runners on second and third, O’Brien came to the plate.With one strike, Osceola coach Stefan Futch called for a suicide squeeze. But O’Brien’s bunt went foul. Futch decided not to give the bunt sign with two strikes.“That would’ve been my fault," Futch said. “I can’t ask him to bunt with two strikes in that situation."So O’Brien had to swing away. A few pitches later, he hit a hard ground ball between shortstop and the pitcher’s mound. The ball went up the middle to score two runs, which turned out to be the winner.“My approach after (the bunt attempt) was to just look middle (infield)," O’Brien said. “As soon as (the shortstop) dove for it I knew a runner was scoring and it was all good."But there were a few tense moments before the final out was made.The Mustangs got on the scoreboard in the third inning, their second time through the lineup. With one out, Keaton Howard was hit by a pitch and moved to second on a wild pitch.Anderson Adler then doubled Howard home for the game’s first run. One out later, Mason Miller singled home two more runs to make it 3-0.Osceola answered in the fourth.A dropped flyball and a double by Aaron Deegan put runners on second and third. With one out, Michael Doyle singled to cut it to 3-1. JT Fondren followed with another single to get to within a run.Mitchell left the bases loaded in the fourth inning, which would prove to be costly. In the sixth, Howard and Adler each singled with no outs. One out later, Deegan came on in relief. He got a strikeout and a flyout to end the inning.In the bottom of the seventh, Kyle Lang led off with a single and Sebastian Zieba walked to put two runners on. But a groundout, a strikeout and another ground out ended the game.“I was only thinking that I had to get this done for my team," Deegan said. “We knew we could hang with them. We were one pitch away the last time we played them but then it was a walk off grand slam. This time we came out on top."Mitchell’s first loss does not mean the season is over. The Mustangs played Braden River in last year’s region quarterfinal.“They executed better than we did," Mitchell coach Howard Chittum said. “We didn’t get the runners in and they did. We had enough hits to win, just not at the right time."
