The two Burkburnett Blacksox teams up in Colorado for the weekend had a good first day on Friday.

The Blacksox 18U team competed in Bubba's Bash in Cañon City and took a pair of wins to advance in the tournament winner's bracket.

First they beat Pueblo Centennial 9-5, then they defeated Lamar 8-3. They will play again Saturday afternoon at 6:45 PM Texas time.

The Blacksox 17U-Black team competed in the Tony Andenucio Memorial Tournament in Pueblo, and split a pair of games.

First, they defeated the previously-undefeated team from Farmington, New Mexico 9-5 to advance to the winner's bracket.

But then in their next game, the Blacksox allowed 7 first-inning runs to Grand Junction, Colo., before rallying back to take a 10-9 lead, before losing 11-10 on a walkoff hit.

They will play twice on Saturday.
