Trojans Destroy The Ship! – Homedale Clinches Spot at State.

Yesterday’s district baseball game was an intense match between Payette and Homedale. Both teams played their best, but in the end, it was Homedale that came out on top with a 3-1 victory. Let’s take a closer look at the game and see how it all went down.

District Bracket as of 10:00 AM Mountain Time, 5/9/23

Payette’s Early Lead

Payette started strong, scoring their only point in the first inning. They were able to maintain their lead throughout the game, but unfortunately, they could not score any more points. Despite their efforts, Payette was unable to hold off Homedale in the final innings. Cameron Strong was able to gain the run, with a .333 Average at the plate.

On the pitching side, Collin Hysell had a .200 ERA, faced 25, had 8 K’s, and almost pitched a no-hitter until the 7th inning, giving up 3 hits, who all came in.

Homedale’s Late Rally

Homedale’s victory came in the final inning of the game when they scored three points, securing their win. It was an impressive comeback, and Homedale’s players and fans were ecstatic with the result. Payette’s players were obviously disappointed, but they put up a good fight and should be proud of their performance. Dillon Fine, Sigmund Goode, and Jayden Wutherich all came in on their hits.

Pitching was Dillon Fine, 0.00 ERA, 26 batters faced, 15 strikeouts, giving out 3 hits, and 1 run.

What’s Next?

Payette now has to play Weiser today, and it’s sure to be another exciting game. The winner of this match will go on to play the winner of McCall vs (the winner of Parma vs Fruitland) for the final. Unfortunately, the Parma vs Fruitland game was postponed due to weather, but it will be played today in Fruitland @ 4:00. We’ll have to wait and see how that game turns out.


Overall, yesterday’s game was an exciting match between two talented teams. Homedale’s late rally secured the win, but Payette put up a good fight. We’ll eagerly watch the rest of the district games to see who comes out on top.
