Cobb ends Edmond North's season on the diamond

Broken Arrow hurler 2-hits Huskies in state tournament

OKLA. CITY — Edmond North just could not get anything going against crafty Broken Arrow right-hander Trey Cobb, who eliminated the Huskies from the Class 6A state tournament on a 2-hitter at Deer Creek High School Friday.

The 6-1 setback ends North’s season at 27-7 while the Tigers will take on Owasso tonight at 6:30 at Shawnee High School in the semifinals.

The Huskies’ lone hits came from catcher Jonathan Davis (1-for-2) and Justin Reynolds (1-for-3) while designated hitter Cody Daylor drew a pair of walks. But Cobb mixed in his 91 mile-per-hour fastball perfectly with astute breaking pitches to limit Edmond North to just .095 (2-for-21) hitting.

Trailing 3-nothing in the top of the sixth, Husky Scott Johnson scored on a Reynolds groundout to keep North in the game.

The Tigers (24-7), however, crossed the plate three times on five hits in the latter half of the inning to secure the victory.

Cobb whiffed eight hitters in the game.

The left-handed batting Broken Arrow shortstop Nick Roark slapped a pair of doubles to the opposite corner in the first and third innings. He scored both times to give the Tigers 1-0 and 3-0 advantages respectively.

Broken Arrow as a team batted .435 (10-for-23) in the game.

Behind the plate for the Huskies, Davis was active. Twice he gunned down speedy attempting base stealers to second baseman Nolan Wilson. On both occasions, the ball bounced, but Wilson scooped and came down quickly with on-time tags.

In the top of the fourth, Tiger Coleman Key hit a bouncer up the middle which appeared to be heading for center field. But Wilson covered a lot of ground in a short amount of time and came away with a great backhand. Moving away from first, Wilson uncorked a throw.

But his teammate on first had already assumed the ball was a hit and did not look for Wilson’s toss. Davis, who was hustling to back up the play, slid on both knees and picked up the ball near the Broken Arrow dugout. He then threw another strike to second to get Key, who thought he would take the extra base on the throw.
