Dragons start year off 1-1

Zach Idlett Dr. K against Wayne with 9 strikeouts


Purcell took a 1-1 season record into Tuesday’s home district double header against Little Axe.

Coach Cole Sharp’s club started the year off with an 8-0 shutout victory over Wayne but ran into tough sledding in their second outing.

That’s when the Noble Bears pinned a 9-1 loss on the Dragons.

Purcell’s lone run came off a Creed Smith home run in the first inning. Smith took the loss on the hill.

Zach Idlett and Tucker Bloodworth combined to throw a three-hitter at Wayne in the season opener.

Idlett fanned nine Bulldogs in five innings of work while surrendering up three hits.

Bloodworth, who worked one inning, struck out one.

Creed Smith was 1-2 at the plate with an RBI while Adrian Dominguez had a double in his only at bat.

Idlett helped his own cause with a pair of RBIs and Hayden Harp plated an RBI.

Purcell is scheduled to play at Asher today (Thursday) and host Wynnewood on Friday weather permitting.
