The Crossett Eagle baseball team won one and lost one in the Allen Jeter Tournament in Crossett last weekend.

The Eagles started out with a 9-5 win over Harmony Grove on Thursday night.

The Eagles began the game behind when Harmony Grove scored two runs in the top of the first.

Cody Kelley started the first Eagle bat with a line drive single to second base and Bennett Holt followed with a single to center field that moved Kelley onto third.

Trent Pullin hit a ground ball to shortstop and was thrown out, but not before Kelley made it across home plate for the first Eagle run. Chase Rice knocked Holt in, but was thrown out at first. Kason Brooks walked on, but was left stranded and the Eagles took the field tied 2-2.

A walk and an error gave Harmony Grove another chance to score and they took back the lead 3-2.

Neither team scored again until the top of the fourth when Harmony Grove moved two more runs across Homeplate. Paul Edgar caught a ball in right field for the first out, but a Harmony Grove runner tagged up for the score. A field error moved another Harmony Grove runner to home, but a double play from Rice on short to Hall on second and then on to Pullin on first brought the Eagles into bat.

In the bottom of the fourth, Brooks started off with a ground ball to short and Paul Edgar followed with a single to right field. Deuce Hall hit a grounder to short and Edgar was thrown out advancing to second leaving Hall on first and Brooks on third.

Jack Rice hit a single, knocking Brooks and Hall both in and the Eagles only needed one more run to tie the score.

Cooper Williams walked on base and Kelley hit a single that moved him to second and brought Rice around to home to tie the score 5-all.

Pullin knocked Kelley in and the Eagles were in the lead 6-5.

The Eagles taking back the lead was the second most exciting thing to happen as at some point during the bottom of the fourth Coach Dustin Wolcott exited the field to welcome his son Jaxon Kade Wolcott into the world.

After Wolcott vacated third base, Coach Derrick Rodgers ran out to take his place and the game continued on.

The fifth inning was scoreless, but in the bottom of the sixth the Eagles scored three more runs.

Holt knocked two runs in with a line drive double and Pullin knocked Holt in with a shot to center field. The Eagles took the field in the top of the seventh leading 9-5. The first Harmony Grove batter reached base on error, but the next was thrown out at second base by Deuce Hall. Edgar caught a fly ball in right field for the second out and Stetson Bishop struck the last batter of the game out.

The Eagles celebrated their 9-5 tournament win.

On Friday the Eagles fell 8-0 to El Dorado.

On Monday the Eagles played in Camden, but results were not available at press time.

On Thursday the Eagles will host their in-county rivals, the Hamburg Lions, at 5 p.m.
