Llano 8, Lampasas 4 - At Llano, Cutter Estep was 2-for-3 with a double and two RBIs, but the Badgers lost their second straight game since picking up their only District 25-3A win last week.

Justin Sooter picked up the loss for Lampasas (3-17, 1-5) after giving up seven runs (five earned) on four hits, two walks, two hit batters and a pair of strikeouts.
