IRVING – Two games into its playoff history, Highland Park already has the look of a postseason veteran.
The Lady Scots easily dispatched Irving 6-0 on Friday to sweep their Class 6A Region II bi-district series. HP advances to meet unbeaten Rockwall next week in the area round.
After using 16 hits to earn a 10-5 victory in the series opener on Thursday, the Lady Scots weren’t as consistent offensively in Game 2. But pitcher Katie Bell took care of the rest, posting a shutout despite facing the same hitters in a two-day span.
Meanwhile, HP wasn’t affected by the same butterflies that might have contributed to an early deficit against the Lady Tigers in Game 1.
