The Lions opened up tournament play by taking on the Falfurrias Jerseys. After the Jerseys put up six runs in the bottom of the first inning. La Feria would respond, scoring in six runs in the next three innings. Once the game was tied up, the Jerseys put up two runs to win 8-6.
With the Loss, the Lions advanced to the championship Saturday, facing off against PSJA Southwest in the consolation championship game. The Lions would put up key runs, led by the pitching of Sebastian Garcia, who recorded three strikeouts. From the plate, Garcia went two for three from the Plate, batting in three runs from the process.
The Lions will have a few more non-district matchups before beginning district play next week.
