A year ago, Highland Park was upset by Class 4A upstart Prosper in the first round of the baseball playoffs, in a three-game series that included a Game 3 blowout.
This weekend, the Scots will have a chance to get their revenge against the Eagles in the Region II quarterfinals.
The first game is set for 7:30 p.m. Thursday at Scotland Yard. The second game in the best-of-three will be at 7:30 p.m. Friday in Prosper, with a third game, if necessary, to be played at 1 p.m. Saturday back at Scotland Yard.
HP has played four of its five postseason games at home thus far. The Scots (24-12) swept Adamson over the weekend to run their winning streak to four games.
The Eagles (26-9) scored 27 runs in a two-game sweep of Woodrow Wilson in the area round, which followed a sweep of Terrell in the bi-district round. They tied for the District 9-4A title during the regular season. Prosper advanced to the regional semifinals last year before losing to Whitehouse.
In their previous meeting this season, Prosper rallied for a 4-3 win in the Collin County Invitational tournament on Feb. 27. HP pitching ace Layne Looney homered in that game, although he did not take the mound.
