Two local teams played their first games of the district tournament season yesterday, with both moving on to the next round.
In baseball, the Poyen Indians dug themselves out of a 2-0 first-inning hole to earn an 11-2 win over Mount Ida, while the Glen Rose softball team made short work of E-Stem 11-1 yesterday.
Those two wins set up a big day of baseball and softball today as the district tournaments roll on.
In Mayflower today, both Glen Rose teams will be in action with the baseball team taking the field against the winner of Fountain Lake and E-Stem at 4 p.m.. The Lady Beavers will follow at 5:30 p.m. against Perryville.
