The Wills Point Tigers opened District 13-4A play at home this week, welcoming the Mabank Panthers to town March 21.

Defensive miscues would be story of the night for the Tigers with five errors helping lead to six unearned runs in a 6-1 Wills Point loss.

Mabank got on the scoreboard in the top of the first, scoring a two-out run on an error in the outfield to take a 1-0 lead.

Wills Point countered Mabank's run with one of their own in the bottom of the frame, courtesy of a Seth Wilson leadoff double, Sam Berberich sacrifice and Caden Bennett RBI single to center.

The Panthers got what would turn into the winning run in the top of the second on a triple that barely landed in play down the right field line and a groundout.
