MAGNOLIA - It seems spring break is agreeing with El Dorado's offense.

After scoring 41 runs in three wins at Monticello earlier this week, the Wildcats continued their offensive surge on Thursday with a 10-5 win over Camden Fairview.

The Wildcats scored three runs in the first and fourth innings, and two runs in the second and third innings.

El Dorado scored all three runs of their runs in the first with two outs.

With runners at first and second, Hunter Lawrence delivered an RBI double that scored Sam York with the game's first run.

With two runners in scoring position, Jake Webster-Moore reached on an error that allowed two runs to score to make it 3-0.

The Cardinals answered with two runs in the bottom of the first, but EHS responded in the second with a pair of two-out runs.

With runners at first and second, York reached on an error that scored Trey Murphy, and Shadarious Plummer later scored on a passed ball to make it 5-2.

Camden Fairview got a run back in the bottom half of the frame, but the Wildcats continued to pull away in the third.

Lawrence, Webster-Moore, Xorian Robinson and Murphy all drew walks with Murphy collecting an RBI to make it 6-3, and Mitchell Polk followed with a sacrifice fly give the Wildcats a four-run edge.

El Dorado gave themselves more breathing room in the fourth.

York was hit by a pitch and took third on Dumas' fly out center before scoring on Lawrence's second double of the game to push the lead to 8-3.

Webster-Moore was then hit by a pitch, and one out later, the Wildcats engineered a double steal to put runners at second and third.

Murphy then drove in a run with a base hit that scored Lawrence to make it 9-3.

El Dorado scored its final run on a bases-loaded walk to Plummer.
