Wilson (4-1) was in control early, going ahead, 2-0, as Aaron Hicks doubled and scored on Elliot Glynn’s looping single in the first and Ryan Dent doubled and scored on Jesse Van Sickle’s high-bouncing grounder in the third. Glynn, who won one game and earned two saves as the Bruins marched to the final, was unhittable into the third, retiring the first seven batters he faced, three by strikeout. But Cypress (5-0) belted seven hits off him over the next 1 2/3 innings, scoring four runs in the third and four more in the fourth. Cypress took advantage of two Wilson errors to go ahead, 9-2, in the fifth, but the Bruins rallied with four runs in the sixth and put the tying run at the plate in the sixth and seventh. Dent had the big blow in the sixth for the Bruins, a sharp single that skipped past Cypress left fielder Matt Homstad, enabling Tyler Albright and Richard Hanson to race home and Homstad to reach third. Dent came home on a wild pitch by Cypress starter Jordan Whitman. “It sucks that we didn’t get the big prize at the end,” Hall said, “but, you know, this tournament we play because we want to get better. We play good teams. You don’t come to this tournament and expect to run away with the title. We had to battle for everything we got … (and) I think we’ve grown a lot in the last five games. “I think we’re going to get some dividends out of this tournament somewhere down the road.” ANAHEIM – Wilson High couldn’t silence Cypress’ bats for the duration in Saturday night’s baseball showdown at Glover Stadium, and the Bruins couldn’t rally all the way back from a seven-run deficit. But coach Andy Hall couldn’t have been much more pleased with his team’s showing in the prestigious season-opening Loara Tournament, no matter the 9-6 defeat in the championship game.
