The Bulldogs scored first in the game with two runs in the second inning to lead 2-0. The Wildcats got to within a run in the third inning. Jaxon Chaney had an RBI single driving home Bryce McQueen who had singled. Royse City responded with three runs in the top of the fourth to go ahead 5-1. The Wildcats chipped away at the lead with single runs in the fourth and fifth innings. In the fourth, Pacen Edwards got on base on a throwing error. Austin Dodd’s RBI single scored Edwards. In the fifth, Jace Thompson singled and Kamren Harrison doubled. Will Sims ground out scored Thompson. That made it 5-3. Then came Royse City’s big top of the seventh. Both the Bulldogs and the Wildcats are now tied near the bottom of the district standings with 2-4 records. The Wildcats’ season record is now 10-5. Royse City is 2-0 in district play against the Wildcats. The two teams play their third and final district game against each other Friday night at Royse City.
