  1. I don't know anything about either team but that score surprises me.  CH usually gets all the better softball players from Nacogdoches so they are usually pretty good.
  2. Saw Shelbyville last night for the first time.  Very good team but in my opinion they gave up too many easy baskets inside.  Yes, they blocked a lot of shots and dominated the boards but just too many easy buckets.  Game was much closer in the first half than final score indicated.  Their point guard can handle the ball and their big man can throw some outlet passes.        
  3. Better game to attend? East Chambers vs. Central Heights or Shelbyville vs. Cushing  

    Just looked over the bracket for region 3 and it looks like a Silsbee - Yates regional final again.  Silsbee's only tough game might be against a 29-5 Huffman team.  Other than that I don't see a challenge for them until  the regional final opponent. Yates has to go through HJ and would then probably play Palestine in a regional semi final. Heard Palestine was pretty good but I doubt they are Yates good.

    More info in Lufkin Daily News if you can get your hands on a copy or you can go to their website (they charge 0.99 to read the article).  And if you want the full truth you can always go to facebook; I am sure there is plenty of poop there.  
  7. Just saw that one session of games will be played at UMHB's Dee Dillon Field.  I am guessing this is the first year of this but I may have missed it last year.  No indication of what classification(s) will play there on website.  Anyone know? This is a nice field but seating is limited.  Maybe 200 seats and the rest is standing.  I guess you could bring chairs to the outfield but that would only work for one row.

    Congrats on making the get to play WOS.
  9. Livingston is Open

    Livingston hires Finis Vanover
  10. Area round playoff game with 4 umpire split crew (2 umpires for each team).  In the top of the 7th inning with a runner on third base, the third base ump calls an illegal pitch allowing what turned out to be the winning run score.  I hear after the game that one of the umps (not his crew member) tells third base ump he should not have made that call in that situation.  Third base ump gets upset and the two have to be separated. Anyone every hear of umps almost coming to blows?   Also, should umpires be from neutral associations not associated with either team?  I guess the scheduling could be a scheduling problem.  
  11. That makes sense.  In my history, Splendora softball has ever been average.
  12. That was a 1 vs 4 matchup wasn't it?  Livingston was well thought of this year in softball but I know Splendora is always good. 
  13. East Chambers vs Jarrell

    I was impressed with the way EC blocked out in the Central game.  They are strong in that area in my opinion.  If they continue to do that the height of Jarrell should not be a problem.  
  14. Central just could not shoot.  I have read a lot about them in the paper and the points they could score.  They maybe hit 2 threes in the first half that I can remember and one of those was from a sub. I did not really understand their coaches decision to let EC set up their press each time. Seemed even when they had a chance to push the ball up the court they would hold up and let everyone get set.  Even with  that I thought they handled the press very well they simply could not hit an open shot.
