Mathiston 12's rebound for win at state tourney

July 13, 2014

The Mathiston 12-year-old All-Stars knew they couldn't suffer a third-straight loss at the Dizzy Dean North State Tournament.
After falling to Magnolia Youth 7-4 and Marshall County 15-10, Mathiston defeated Hernando 7-4 Saturday afternoon to live to play another day at McKee Park.
Mathiston scored one run in the first inning, two in the fourth and four in the fifth to capture the come-from-behind victory.
"It's very nice," Mathiston assistant coach Shasta Plunkett said. "We're proud of our boys for coming back and holding their heads up. To get down like that, it's very hard to come back after two losses."
Cameron Pilgrim had a pair of singles for Mathiston, while Conner Shurden, Coleson Buchanan and Kaleb Parrish added one single each.
Punkett gave special recognition to Dillon Jackson for his play off the bench.
"Dillon Jackson sacrificed for the team," Plunkett said. "He played a good bit (against Hernando). He's our sub. We got good pitching and it was a great game."
Mathiston plays Starkville today. The first pitch is scheduled for 1 p.m.

Marshall County 15,
Mathiston 10

In the first game of the day for Mathiston, it just couldn't outscore the tough Rebels from Marshall County.
Parrish had a triple and Coleson Buchanan added a double for the multiple hits for Mathiston, while Pilgrim and Hunter Bagley had two singles each. Ty Freeman, Samuel Turner and Ross Cochran had one single each.
