McCollum said he was pleased to see his team never get too comfortable in the game.
"We got a lead and we didn’t sit on it, didn’t get satisfied," he said. "We kept extending it."

"We booted the ball around a bit," Cy Ranch coach John Pope said, pointing to two hit batters and a pair of errors in the early going. "We just gave them five runs."
"We didn’t really hit the ball," Pope said. "We left quite a few runners on base tonight."
Leon Byrd hit a home run in the loss. "After that home run, we didn’t do much," Pope said.
Cy Ranch will host Cy-Fair on Friday at 7 p.m.
