Midwest City High School got in some work over the spring break at the Edmond Festival.

The Bombers went 1-1 with a win against Oklahoma Christian School and loss to Piedmont. They were also scheduled to play Edmond North, but it was rained out.

Midwest City (6-6, 4-0) dropped the first game to Piedmont 8-0 on Friday.

The Wildcats pulled ahead with two runs in the second inning and put the game away with a five-run fourth inning. They also held the Bombers to only one hit. Turner McPherson broke up the no-hitter with a leadoff single in the third inning.

Stephen Lewellyn took the loss after allowing five earned runs on four hits and three walks. He also struck out five.

The Bombers snapped a three-game skid with a 14-9 victory against OCS Saturday afternoon.

Lincoln King hit a grand slam and drove in seven runs in the win. He went 4 for 5 with a grand slam and two doubles. Stephen Lewellyn also hit a pair of doubles and Devin Sissons went 2 for 3 with three runs scored.

The Saints grabbed the early lead with five runs in the bottom of the first. Midwest City stormed back in the third inning when King belted a grand slam to right field, giving the Bombers a 7-6 lead.
Midwest City added to its lead with three in the fourth. Stephen Lewellyn doubled in a run, and King followed with a two-run double to right, scoring Terrance Rideau and Kenneth Colston for a 10-6 advantage.

OCS pulled within a run at 10-9 in the top of the fifth, but the Bombers wouldn’t relent. They pushed four more across the plate in the sixth. King hit an RBI single to centerfield, and McPherson and

Tory Ware both drove in runs on groundouts. Brandon Dixon later scored on an error to make it a 14-9 score.

Jesse Bain pitched two hitless innings of relief to seal the win.

Noah Polston was the winning pitcher after throwing five innings. He allowed six earned runs on eight hits and two walks with four strikeouts.

Midwest City returned to district play Monday with a doubleheader against Southeast and faced Carl Albert on Tuesday. They are scheduled to host Edmond North on Friday.
