Dixon coach Alex Shelton's postgame comments: "[McCoy] worked a very efficient ballgame and was able to keep Crocker off-balance all day. Senior Michael Fulbright stepped up big with a two-out double that gave us our first two runs in the fifth inning."

The Crocker coach did not comment.

Quick box score (Game 2):

1 2 3 4 5 6 7 R H E

St. Elizabeth 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 3 0

Dixon 0 0 0 3 0 2 X 5 6 1

[Game stats: WP – S. Weider (CG, 0 R, 3 H, 17 K, 2 BB); W. Hughes, 2-for-3 (2 2B, RBI, R); M. Fulbright, 1-for-2 (1B, R, BB); A. Meier, 1-for-2 (2B, RBI, R); Weider, 1-for-3 (1B, 2 RBI, BB).

Dixon coach Alex Shelton's postgame comments: "Weider turned in one of the most dominating pitching performances that I have seen as a coach. Of his 17 strikeouts, he sat the first 10 St. Elizabeth hitters down on strikes … There are still things that we need to continue to perfect as we begin our late-season push."

After capturing the St. Elizabeth Tournament championship Saturday, Dixon faces a tough schedule this week with contests at Russelville and Iberia, a home doubleheader against Licking and Stoutland, and a third home game against Eldon. Shelton said he is "looking forward to the challenge," which began at Russellville on Monday.
