Rains delay most county baseball playoffs

Some Kingfisher County baseball teams were able to get in some of their playoff games on Thursday.

Others weren’t so fortunate.

One school that completed its first round was Cashion.

The Wildcats threw a pair of shutouts in their Class 2A district tournament as they swept Hinton 9-0 and 3-0 at home.

The wins advance Cashion (24-7) to this week’s regional tournament.

Cashion is seeking its third consecutive trip to the state tournament this season.

The only other county team to get at least one game in on Thursday was Lomega.

The Raiders were originally supposed to play their first Class B regional game at 11 a.m. in Moss.

That game didn’t begin until 4 p.m. and the Raiders were defeated 15-2 by the top-seeded host team.

That put Lomega within one game of elimination.

The Raiders were set to play Buffalo Valley in an elimination game at 4 p.m. Friday (after press time).

Okarche’s Class A regional at Dewar was pushed back a day.

The Warriors played Drummond at 1:30 p.m. Friday (after press time) in the opening round.

The regional now has a Friday-Saturday-Sunday schedule and the champion will advance to the state tournament.

Kingfisher was set to host Madill in a Class 4A bi-district best-of-three series on Thursday.

The rain postponed it and the teams eventually agreed to play Friday in Marlow as Kingfisher was scheduled for even more rain.

Those games began after press time.

Like Kingfisher, Hennessey was originally slated to host a bi-district series.

However, the Eagles eventually traveled south to Davis to play their Class 3A series beginning Friday (after press time).
