Four Demonettes – Natalie Vera (97-pound division), Emily Rios (123-pound division), Denisia Garcia (132-pound division), and Ana Rivera (Super Heavyweight) – advance to the state championships after finishing second at the regional competition.


AMARILLO, TX – Zach Thompson went the distance and the Dumas Demons erupted for a trio runs in the fourth inning to open the Randy Keller Tournament with a 3-1 victory over the Tascosa Rebels.

Thompson scattered one run on five hits and three walks with seven strikeouts to notch the complete-game win.

The Demons broke a scoreless deadlock on a run-scoring single from third baseman Jace Torrez, and Isael Olivas plated Torrez with a base hit up the middle to make the score 2-0. Imanol Marquez crossed the plate on an error to cap the three-run frame.

Tascosa foiled the shutout on an RBI single off the bat of right fielder Brayden Keeter.

Torrez went 3-for-3 with a run and an RBI to pace the Demons’ offensive attack.

Dumas suffered a 15-5 setback to Amarillo High in their first game Saturday at Sandie Field and finished the tourney with a narrow 5-4 loss to the Caprock Longhorns.

The Demons will host the River Road Wildcats Friday at noon before hitting the road Saturday for a noon matchup against the Dalhart Wolves.

The Demonettes will host Tascosa at 5 p.m. Tuesday in a warm-up game at Demon Stadium.
