It took extra innings for the Lions to win Game 1, but they did 5-3 with two runs in the eighth inning. They lost Game 2 5-2. Game 3 will be at noon Friday.
Shallowater played the first game of its three-game set and topped Brock 6-5. The Mustangs scored all six of their runs in the first three innings and their pitching held off Brock to secure the win.
