Highlights from Wednesday’s high school sports scene around the Pikes Peak region.


Widefield 9, Golden 8

At Widefield: Widefield (2-7) withstood a seventh-inning rally from Golden (3-3) to notch the win Wednesday.

A half inning after Widefield scored three runs to build a 9-5 lead, the Demons scored three but couldn’t send the game-tying run across the plate.

Dylan Marks had three RBIs and two runs for the Gladiators, while Cameron Skalla drove in two and scored once. Brennan Heitz went 3 for 3 with two doubles, an RBI and a run.

After opening the season with six consecutive losses, the Gladiators have won two of their last three.

They return to action Thursday against Pueblo South (5-1).

After that, the Gladiators open play in the 4A Colorado Springs Metro League on April 6.

Discovery Canyon 20, Marian Catholic 9
Thunderbird 11, Discovery Canyon 10

At Phoenix: To say Discovery Canyon (1-4) broke out the bats for its first win would be an understatement.

The Thunder scored half of their 20 runs in the fifth inning, rallying from a 7-4 deficit to blow out Marian Catholic (1-2), of Illinois, in the Greenway Festival in Phoenix.

The Thunder tacked on five more runs in the seventh.

The Thunder have scored 22 runs combined in their four losses.

Britt Logan went 5 for 6 with three doubles, seven RBIs and three runs scored for the Thunder. Brad King and Mason Pastorello each drove in three.

The Thunder also scored 10 runs against Arizona’s Thunderbird (8-5) but came up short. Discovery Canyon scored five times in the seventh before being stopped.

Rye 13, Florence 7

At Rye: Rye (5-0) scored in all but two innings to beat Florence (2-3) in a nonconference game.

The Huskies scored four runs in the fourth to take a 7-6 lead. But Rye answered with a run in the fifth and three each in the sixth and seventh.

Gary Ramsey drove in three runs for the Thunderbolts.
