District rivals will meet with the 6A state championship on the line Saturday. Mustang and Westmoore will meet for the third time this season for the title in Oklahoma City. The two teams met in district play back at the end of March and they split the district series. Mustang won the first meeting 2-0. The Jaguars won the second match-up in style with an 11-1 win. Mustang made it to the title game by stunning Owasso in the first round with a 3-0 shutout victory. In the semifinals, they beat Yukon 4-1, a Yukon team that had scored 11 runs the day before. Westmoore opened the tournament by beating Deer Creek 4-2. They turned around and beat Broken Arrow with ease, 8-2.

Tale Of The Tape

Mustang Broncos

Record: (27-12)

Championships: 1 (1982)

Road To Championship Saturday
Quarterfinals: Beat Owasso 3-0
Semifinals: Beat Yukon 4-1

Notable
Mustang is looking for their first title since the early 80’s. However, they’re in a new position all together. This is their first appearance in the state tournament since 2001. They made the most of it with their two wins. Now they look to finish off the improbable run with a state title.

Westmoore Jaguars

Record: (27-10)

Championships: 1 (1994)

Road To Championship Saturday
Quarterfinals: Beat Deer Creek 4-2
Semifinals: Beat Broken Arrow 8-2

Notable
Westmoore was nearly eliminated on day one of the playoffs. They opened up regionals with a loss against Lawton. That put the Jaguars in a must win situation and they would need to win four straight wins just to get to state. They avenged their loss to Lawton and then beat Edmond Santa Fe twice by a combined two runs.
