Goats battle Eagles last week, face Blackcats Friday night

FARIFIELD - That straight line wind coming out of Freestone County at around 9:30 p.m. last Thursday wasn’t caused by Mother Nature. That rush of air was the collective Groesbeck fan base letting out a huge sigh of relief – pushed out by a roar of joy. Junior pitcher Chandler Boyd struck out the Eagles Brady Jackson with the bases loaded in the bottom of the seventh, preserving the 7-5 District 18-4A win after the Goats battled back to score a pair of runs in the top of the inning.
