WATCH: Willard tops Webb City 5-4 in a battle of the top two teams in the Class 5 state rankings.

With the loss, Webb City is now 13-3 overall, including a 2-2 record in the COC.

“We played good defense in those first four innings…but that last inning things didn’t go our way and ball didn’t bounce the way we wanted it to,” says Flave Darnell, Webb City head coach, “It was unfortunate. We’re having trouble with some of those big innings you know? We have an error here, hit batter here and then a walk here. We just couldn’t overcome it today.”
