     “That wasn’t an easy district. Both of those teams were pretty good. We pitched it well for the most part, and we caught it well. We did a lot of positive things, but we will have to be better next week,” said veteran Latta head coach Eddie Collins.

     Brady Johnson went the distance and got the win on the mound, allowed just one hit in the five-inning affair.

     Latta scored six runs in the first to jump out to the early lead. The Panthers had 11 hits in the contest and committed one error.
