Apaches softball wins first tiebreaker, face La Vernia tonight in battle for second place


The Gonzales High School softball team held off a late rally to defeat Cuero, 5-4, April 27 in the first of two 4A District 27 tiebreaker games.

With the win, Gonzales advances to face La Vernia today at 7 p.m. in Cuero, with the winner of the game the No. 2 seed, and the loser the No. 3 seed.

Regular district play ended with Navarro in first at 6-0, and a three-way tie remained for second place among Gonzales, La Vernia, and Cuero.

However, the three other teams each finished 2-4, with each team splitting the two district meetings with each other to further complicate the tiebreakers. 

With the loss, Cuero will be the No. 4 seed heading into the Bi-District round. In Bi-District, 4A District 27 will face 4A District 28. 

District 28's seeds are:

• Fredericksburg: 10-0, 25-6-1

• Boerne: 8-2, 23-6

• Wimberley: 4-6, 7-10

• Canyon Lake: 4-6, 7-16
