Dragons fall to Bears in district tourney semis

PARKERS CHAPEL – For a time, it looked like Junction City would avenge a loss to Woodlawn during conference play, but the Bears rallied from a 5-0 deficit to top the Dragons 6-5 in the semifinals of the 8-2A District Tournament Friday at Robert McKinnon Park.

The Dragons, the No. 5 seed who upended Spring Hill and Fordyce to clinch a spot in the regional tournament, take on Hampton, the No. 3 seed who fell to Parkers Chapel 7-0 in Friday’s second semifinal in the consolation game at noon on Saturday.

Junction City scored twice in the first and added three more runs in the second to take a 5-0 lead, but the top-seeded Bears scored two runs in the fourth and four in the fifth to take the lead for good.

Trey Walker, who turned in a solid outing in long relief against Parkers Chapel last weekend, went the distance with a three-hitter for the Dragons.

In taking the loss, Walker allowed six runs, but only four were earned. He walked four, hit two batters and struck out five.

A’Donnis Jones had a single and two RBIs for the Dragons, while Walker and Logan Pepper each had a single and an RBI.

Coyt Sellers had a double and an RBI, while Gabe Richard and Clay Graves each had singles for Junction City.
