BETHANY, OK —
Pryor earned a season split with Coweta Thursday, slapping the visiting Tigers with an 8-2 loss.
Coweta took a 2-0 lead in the top of the second inning, but Pryor (4-1, 3-1 district) took the lead for good in the bottom of the third, 3-2. A four-run fifth cemented the Pryor win.
Bradley Nixon relieved Conley Ledoux (2-0) after four innings and allowed just one hit.
Senior Nate Wolfe went 2-for-4 from the plate with a double and a pair of runs. Designated hitter Zach Castleberry went 2-for-3, and junior centerfielder Brennon Barth went 1-for-3 and batted in a pair of runs.

Chouteau's Blaylock stays red hot
HULBERT -- Chouteau junior Tyler Blaylock continued his solar-powered hitting streak Thursday, falling a triple shy of the cycle in a 13-6 Wildcats win at Hulbert.
"He comes in every morning before school and he's always the last to leave the cage," Matt Tramel, who has yet to lose a game as the Wildcat head coach, said.
Blaylock went 3-for-3 (a single, a double and a home run) with six RBIs, overshadowing his teammate Conner Darnell, who smacked a grand slam in the fourth inning and was also the winning pitcher. Darnell went 2-for-3 with four RBIs.
Chouteau (4-0) will stay home Saturday for a pair of games with Class B Bluejacket. The first pitch is at noon.
