RISCO -- After one of their biggest wins in their program's history, the Risco Tigers had a letdown Wednesday.
Risco, who defeated the always tough Cooter Wildcats ending their 78-game conference winning streak, fell to Delta C-7 6-3 at Risco High School.
"We went from heros to zeros today," Risco head coach Brandon Blankenship said, after missing the first five innings because of having to coach the girls' softball team. "It was just a weird day. I don't know if it would have made a difference if I was there or not, but if we're not focused and have the intensity that we need, that's going to be the outcome for us."
Delta C-7 wasted little time jumping out on the Tigers. The Chargers put up five runs in the first inning, which included a 2-run home run from Chase Lancaster.
Delta C-7's Seth Hill pitched the complete game victory allowing three runs on six Tiger hits.
Caleb McCord and matt Cumins each had two hits to lead Risco. McCord added a solo home run in the first inning while Cumins and Chris Pavy chipped in with a double each.
