After crushing all three opponents this week, the Brusly Panthers have earned their seventh consecutive win.

“We’ve been playing really well,” said Coach Dupont. “We now have a seven game winning streak.”

Coach credits his pitchers for the team’s success. “Our starting pitchers are doing an outstanding job. In all three games this week, the starting pitchers have gone deep in the game.”

Tuesday, the Panthers dominated their first district game of the season against Baker with a 15-2 win. Evan Daigle, the winning pitcher, was also stellar at the plate, going three for three with a double and an RBI. Luke Leblanc was also three for three with a triple and two RBI. Jake Dunn was two for three with a double and two RBI, while Beau Witty was one for two with a double and two RBI.

Brusly had another opportunity to face the Buffs Thursday, and took advantage, topping Baker 15-0 in a clean sweep. Luke LeBlanc was the winning pitcher for the Panthers.

Top batters were Kwanston Adkins (three for four with two doubles and two RBI), Evan Daigle (two for four with one double and two RBI), and Blake Manola (one for two with a triple and three RBI.)

“We hit really well against Baker,” said Panthers Head Baseball Coach Tait Dupont. “The pitching has been there all year, but batting hasn’t been in a strong suit for us this year, until now. In each game, we had over 10 hits.”

Saturday, Brusly overtook Dunham 7-3 behind the arm of Landon Blank.

Top batters included Evan Daigle (one for three), Austin Watts (one for three with an RBI), Landon Andre (one for one with an RBI), and Brennan Allen (one for three).

This week, the Panthers will play Tuesday at West Feliciana at 6:30 p.m., and at home Thursday against West Feliciana at 6:30 p.m.

Saturday, Brusly will host Family Christian at 11 a.m.

“West Feliciana is predicted to be one of the district front runners,” said Dupont. “It will be tougher this week, but we’re excited about the challenge of playing West Feliciana as well as other top teams like Parkview and U-High. If you want to go deep into playoffs, these are the ones that you look forward to.”
