MOUNT PLEASANT, Texas — Coming into Friday night’s game with Gilmer, Paris High had thrown back-to-back no-hitters in the playoffs. One by Cannon Chadwick and one by Kameron Sumrall.

Friday night, Paris sent Chadwick back to the mound and he started where he left off as Paris High defeated Gilmer 4-0 in Game 1 of their best-of-three  series. Chadwick went all the way, allowing only four hits.

The Wildcats’ bats and base running were in sync as well. Brice Winter led off the second inning with a double and scored on a throwing error by the Gilmer pitcher on Dakota Smith’s sacrifice. Smith scored later on a passed ball by the catcher. Paris added two more runs in the fourth inning, and that was plenty enough for Chadwick.

Game 2 of the series is set for 2 p.m. Saturday at Hub Hollis Field in Paris. If Gilmer wins, Game 3 in the series would follow soon after the conclusion of Game 2.
