 Carson baseball can’t clip Cougars late
Trailing 4-2 Thursday, the Senators were able to load the bases with two outs, putting the winning run on first base, but the Cougars were able to escape.
Kobe Morgan, who went 3-for-3 with two doubles in the loss, drew a full count walk to load the bases, but a grounder to third resulted in a force out that ended the contest.
“There is no rest in this league, we have to put this one behind us,” said Carson head coach Bryan Manoukian. “We have a huge doubleheader with Reed Saturday. We are in a dogfight for those bottom four spots.”
Bryce Baker and Ian Fontaine were both given credit with an RBI in the loss.
UP NEXT: Carson (4-8) hosts Reed (5-7) in a Saturday doubleheader that could have major implications on the postseason seeding race.


Cougar softball too strong for Senators 
A 10-0 loss in five innings was not what the Carson High softball team envisioned against Spanish Springs Thursday.
The Cougars were able to tally 14 hits to the Senators’ two, the first of which came in the opening at-bat when Kedre Luschar started the game with a triple.
The Senators could not drive in Luschar, taking three consecutive strikeouts.
Spanish Springs scored twice in the second before opening the game up with a five-run fourth inning.
Corine Doran was the only other Senator to register a hit.
In their previous meeting, Carson pitcher Caydee Farnworth threw a no-hitter, but the Cougars were able to capitalize on their second time seeing the junior hurler.
“Spanish Springs is good. 10-0 good, I don’t think so,” said Carson High head coach Carlos Mendeguia. “I give them credit, they earned it. … But, we’re supposed to execute on offense.”
UP NEXT: Carson (9-3) welcomes Reed (9-1) to town for a doubleheader Saturday that will help settle the discussion on the top teams in the north.
“We have to have a short memory. We have a huge doubleheader Saturday. Reed is one of the top two teams,” said Mendeguia.

Dayton baseball splits back-to-back contests
Tuesday night, Dayton High baseball had the privilege to play at Greater Nevada Field in Reno against Fernley.
The Vaqueros jumped out to an early 4-0 lead, but Dayton was able to reel Fernley back in with a three-run fifth.
Ultimately, Fernley secured an 8-7 win over the Dust Devils.
Caleb Sumsion and Robbie Harrison each drove in two RBIs apiece as Sumsion hit a home run to left field in the third inning.
Wednesday, Dayton responded with an 8-3 win over Elko.
The Dust Devils recorded 11 hits in the winning effort as each of the first six batters in the lineup recorded at least one hit.
Broc Strong threw a complete game on the bump for Dayton, striking out five and giving up three earned runs.
