No. 2-ranked Kennard jumped out in front of Chireno 2-0 early Thursday night, then added to the lead, before exploding for an 11-3 victory over the Owls at Dragon Field in Nacogdoches in Game 1 of the best-of-three Class 1A Region III Regional Quarterfinal contest.

The Owls (10-15) will look to even the series on Saturday, May 14, when they battle the Tigers (19-12) in Game 2 at 12-noon back at Dragon Field at Nac HS. Game 3, if necessary, will be played 30 minutes after Game 2.
