Barnsdall High School’s baseball team experienced Friday what it’s like to be a roller-coaster.
On the down side, the Panthers (11-9) suffered a 10-1 whipping by Rejoice Christian.
But, Barnsdall then reversed its daily destiny by thumping Rejoice Christian, 14-9, in the second game.

Braden Kelley scored the Panthers’ lone run.
But, the squad at least kept the dust flying around the bases by stealing six bases — three by Ky Allen and one each by Joseph Cole, Keegan Marin and Reese Robbins.
Allen also belted two singles.
Michael Marin pitched most the way for Barnsdall. Only three of the five runs scored against him were earned.

Michael Marin blasted two doubles, scored three runs and drove in another to help set the pace for the Panthers, who are coached by Wade Corder.
Wesley Yarber added a single and three RBI’s, followed by Bryce Shores and Caron Aushwitz with one RBI apiece.
Robbins also reached base twice as a hit batsman.
Yarber pitched five innings of four-hit ball, walking seven, allowing seven runs and striking out two.
Cole scattered two hits in two innings of relief and fanned four batters. Two runs were scored against him, but none of them earned.
