Dawson seeking to stay on recent winning path

PEARLAND — The Dawson Eagles diamondmen have a two-game winning streak for the new season and they hope to keep it going in the right direction.

Dawson beat Manvel 7-5 to avenge an earlier 7-6 loss to the Mavericks in the third game of the season.

The Eagles got a strong pitching performance from Adam Houghtaling, who pitched six scoreless innings, in a 9-5 win over C.E. King.

Dawson (6-7) also has wins over St. John's (4-2), Friendswood (7-1), Morton Ranch (9-5), and Houston Westside (10-0).

A future look at the season has Dawson in a good position to be one of the four playoff teams. Brazoswood, George Ranch, and Pearland are the other teams that should advance to the post-season.
