Allen raced to a 9-0 lead before Central Sallisaw finally spoiled the shutout with its only runin the bottom of the sixth.

COACHES QUOTE: “Brandon was on fired today. He was as sharp as he’s every been. He came out ready to play today. I was pretty happy. Central-Sallisaw can play a little bit. That was a pretty tough first-round draw,” — Allen head coach John Cundiff.
