Ridge Point falls to Southlake Carroll
Originally Appeared on VYPE
ROUND ROCK – Going against what had become a theme of its playoff run, Ridge Point didn't have another comeback left in the tank.
Early errors paired with a struggling bullpen became too much for the Panthers to overcome as Southlake Carroll capitalized on every single one of their mistakes.
The Dragons scored 11 runs in the third inning and blew out Ridge Point 17-0 to claim the Class 6A State Championship on Saturday at Dell Diamond.
"We've used this word the whole time through the playoffs, they've shown their resiliency," Ridge Point coach Clinton Welch said. "I don't know how many times we were down but it was a lot. Of course, we got down 4-0 in the first inning of this game too and just one time too many."
Ridge Point finishes its best season in program history with a record of 33-5-1 after reaching the state tournament for the first time. The Panthers were trying to become the first Fort Bend ISD team to win a baseball title since Fort Bend Elkins in 2003.
"It doesn't take away what a great group of student athletes we have at Ridge Point," Welch said. "They've done a great job of battling to get here and acting correct on the field and doing a great job of representing Ridge Point High School, Fort Bend ISD and their community.
"We're really happy for them. It's tough to get here, tough to win that final game. They had a great season."
