Matt Nickell scores pair of goals in area championship win

Matt Nickell scored two goals and Yusef Marwan and Thomas Davis each tallied a goal and two assists to lift the Aledo Bearcats to a 4-1 victory over Wichita Falls High School Tuesday night in a Class 4A area championship match at Memorial Stadium in Wichita Falls.

The Bearcats will advance to the sectional (third) round where they will face Birdville at 7 p.m. Friday, March 26, at Brewer High School.

Aledo led 2-0 after the first half. Nickell got the Bearcats on the board when he scored after a feed from Marwan.

The Bearcats' lead grew to two goals when Marwan found the back of the net after receiving a pass from Davis.

Old High cut the lead in half, 2-1, with a goal a minute and a half into the second half.

But Aledo got the score back on a Davis goal with Marwan earning the assist that extended the Bearcats' lead to 3-1.

The Bearcats closed the scoring later in the second half on a goal from Nickell with Davis recording the assist.

Saginaw hands baseball Bearcats first district loss

Aledo right fielder Carolyn Clayton's solo inside-the-park home run in the bottom of the sixth inning gave the Ladycats the run they needed to run-rule Saginaw, 15-5, Tuesday night in a District 6-4A contest at Ladycats Field.

The win raises the Ladycats district record to 3-2. Aledo will continue league action at 7 p.m. Friday, March 26, at Springtown.

Kacie Brann was the winning pitcher for AHS. The sophomore allowed five runs on three hits with eight walks and 10 strikeouts in six innings.

Seven of Aledo's 16 hits came off the bats of Jordan Simons and Kendall Kizer. Simons swatted four singles, while Kizer had three hits, including a double.

Clayton - who also registered a single - Aubrey Jordan and Rebecca Phillips each recorded a pair of hits, while Morgan Farley, Shelby Stockard and Sarah Simpson each collected a hit.

The Ladycats broke open a 3-2 game with seven runs in the fourth inning to take a 10-2 lead. The big hit in the frame was a single by Stockard that drove in Farley and Clayton.

Aledo High School baseball, softball teams at home Tuesday against Saginaw

The Aledo Bearcats soccer team will face Wichita Falls High School in the area championship game on Tuesday, March 23, at Memorial Stadium in Wichita Falls.

Kickoff is set for 7 p.m. Ticket costs are $5 for adults and $3 for students.

The Bearcats (21-1-1) are coming off a 5-1 win over Denton Ryan last Thursday in the bi-district playoffs. Wichita Falls had a bye in the opening round.

The Aledo Ladycats softball team and Bearcats baseball team will both face Saginaw in home diamond tilts on Tuesday.

Both games will begin at 7 p.m. at the Aledo High School athletic complex.

Loftis strikes out 12 to lead Bearcats to 9-0 win over Azle

March 19, 2010 by Tony Eierdam

Aledo senior pitcher Calvin Loftis struck out 12 Azle batters en route to a complete game four-hit shutout as the Bearcats handled the Hornets, 9-0, Friday night in a District 6-4A contest at Azle.

The win lifts the state-ranked No. 8 Bearcats to 3-0 in 6-4A, while Azle drops to 1-2.

Aledo will continue district play at 7 p.m. Tuesday, March 23, at home against Saginaw.

After Azle's leadoff hitter reached on an error, Loftis - who did not issue a walk in seven innings - retired nine batters in a row and 11 of the next 12. In that span, the lefty struck out eight batters, including striking out the side in the second inning.

"Calvin had everything working for him," Aledo skipper Ryan McCurley said. "To not issue any free passes definitely indicated he had quality stuff.

"He buried a lot of sliders on 0-2 and 1-2 counts, and he threw sliders for strikes when he was behind in the count. Anytime he can do those two things and have an exploding fastball, it will be tough to hit him."

Azle did not record a hit until the fourth inning, and one of the four hits Loftis surrendered was an infield singles.

Soccer Bearcats advance after 5-1 win over Denton Ryan; Ladycats fall to Guyer

March 18, 2010 by Tony Eierdam

Thomas Davis scored three goals to lead the Aledo Bearcats to a convincing 5-1 victory over Denton Ryan Thursday night in a Class 4A bi-district soccer playoff match at Northwest ISD Stadium.

The win advances the Bearcats to the area round where they will face Wichita Falls High School.

Following the contest the Bearcats lost a "home and home" coin flip, meaning they will travel to Wichita Falls and face the Coyotes at 7 p.m. on Tuesday (March 23) at Wichita Falls ISD Memorial Stadium.

Tickets will be $5 for adults and $3 for students.

Davis scored his first two goals in the first half after Matt Nickell opened the scoring by converting a penalty kick from the box just 38 seconds into the match.

With 21:27 remaining in the opening half, Davis extended the Bearcats' lead to 2-0 on a 12-yard shot from the left side off a feed from Nickell.

Just 52 later, Davis struck again, this time from 20 yards out off a rebound for a 3-0 lead, which it remained at the half.

Denton Ryan cut the lead to 3-1 with 28:35 left in the second half on a penalty kick.

Talley fires one-hitter, strikes out 13 to lead Bearcats to 6-0 victory over Boswell

March 17, 2010 by Tony Eierdam

Aledo senior pitcher Ryan Talley allowed one hit and struck out 13 to lead the state-ranked No. 8 Bearcats to a 6-0 victory over Boswell Wednesday night in a District 6-4A contest at Boswell.

The Bearcats will take a break from district play and will face Midlothian at 3 p.m. tomorrow (Thursday, March 18) at The Ballpark In Arlington. Admission is free.

Aledo will continue district play at 7:30 p.m. Friday, March 19, at Azle.

Talley - who took a no-hitter into the seventh inning - allowed seven walks and hit one batter. He got out of a bases-loaded jam in the fourth with a strikeout. Talley finished off four of seven frames with inning-ending strikeouts.

Boswell's Gene Ramirez broke up the no-hitter with a clean, line-drive single to left field with no outs and a runner on in the seventh. However, Talley retired the next three batters to preserve the shutout.

Aledo scored three runs in the opening frame to take a 3-0 lead by taking advantage of a pair of Boswell errors to go along with an extra-base hit. The big hit in the inning was a RBI double by senior left fielder Nils Smith.

The win evens the Ladycats district mark at 2-2. The loss was Azle's first in district play.

The Ladycats will continue district action at 7 p.m. at home Tuesday, March 23, against Saginaw.
