Defense was everything for the Bulldogs’ game! STC fought off a flurry of pitches from two talented Falcon arms to end the night with a score of 2-1. The Dawgs will face Celebration HS for the District 8A title this Thursday. Positively Osceola will be there bringing you all the action. As always, enjoy the night!
St. Cloud’s cool-headed pitcher Darren Friedman saved the Dawgs from pain numerous times when Falcon runners were on base, including the top of the 5th inning with 2 on. He earned his way out of the inning without giving up a run.
The score in the bottom of the fifth was 1-1 and it was obvious this game was going down to the wire. Positively Osceola’s digital sports reporter, Cole Harvey, was LIVE on Facebook the entire 6th and 7th inning, reaching over 4000 people during these extremely tight innings. The Falcons kept the Dawgs off balance with some strong pitching, but St. Cloud out-hustled and out hit East River and scored another run in the 6th after the catcher lost control of a pitch.
Darren Friedman finished the game strong and pointed the Bulldogs toward a chance of a Championship on Thursday at St. Cloud.
