CORPUS CHRISTI - When you think about softball in the South Texas several names will come to mind, and I'm willing to bet amongst those names are Tuloso-Midway and Moody High School.
These two have been regulars in the Region Round and are teams no opponent wants to run into, but come Friday night the path to State for both programs will turn into a head on collision at Cabaniss Field.
Now neither side is making this game out to anything more than just a game, but for the fans it's a serious showdown.
"It's honestly just another game for us. We are not looking at as who we are playing; we are just playing another team. We are going out there and playing our best and playing like we play any other team. We are going to step it up because it's playoffs. We have to do our best in order to make it as far as we want to," said Destiny Rodriguez, senior pitcher.
"We need to get a head start. We have to win so we can be relaxed instead of going in under pressure," said senior infielder Ashley Elizondo.
The 24-8 Cherokees know that Moody is state ranked, and know they have plenty of weapons, but they also know how good they are and how many weapons they have.
"We are a very confident team. We just have to go in there, work hard during the week, go in there and bust it open and hope it goes our way," said Roxanne Curiel, senior catcher.
"I am really confident in my team and my player's defense wise we can do it and offense wise we just gotta bust it open," said Infielder Sarina Sanchez.
