Thompson's arm leads Ooltewah to district tourney win

Posted: Updated:

SODDY-DAISY, Tenn. (WRCB) -- Jake Wyrick brought his best stuff to the mound for Cleveland's District 5-AAA tournament game Thursday night.

Unfortunately Ooltewah's Zach Thompson stuff was a little bit better.

The Owls' hurler struck out 15 and faced just two over the minimum in a 4-0 win over the Blue Raiders at Soddy-Daisy's Tom Higgins Field.

Ooltewah, 5-AAA's regular season champ No. 1 tournament seed, now advances to play either Bradley Central or Soddy-Daisy in Saturday's winner's bracket. Those two will play Friday after Soddy-Daisy upset second-seeded Walker Valley 10-4 Thursday afternoon.

Thompson recorded ten strikeouts in his first 12 outs and retired eleven straight after Wyrick's two-out single in the first.

Wyrick did his best to keep pace on the mound, striking out the side in the first and stranding six Owls on base through the first three innings. He escaped a bases-loaded jam in the second thanks to Michael Henderson's highlight-reel diving catch in center.

Ooltewah took the lead on Chase Morrisey's RBI-groundout in the third, then took control on Brody Binder's two-run double to left in the fourth.

That was more than enough for Thompson, who polished off a complete game, two-hit shutout.
