mmackle@MiamiHerald.com

West Broward defeated host Nova 5-2 on Wednesday, overcoming a 2-0 deficit for a dramatic win in its season opener.

The Bobcats trailed 2-0 in the fifth when Chacy Ahay-Eldon walked and moved to second when Nova misplayed Cody Williams’ sacrifice bunt.

Xavier Beltron’s sacrifice bunt advanced the runners, and Christian Khawly’s two-run single up the middle tied the score.

Danny Pardo followed with a go-ahead double, and the Bobcats added a run apiece in the sixth and seventh innings. Michael Chappell relieved Mark Mendez in the fifth inning and shut out the Titans the rest of the way. Mendez recorded the win.

BIG UPSET

The Mater Lakes baseball team has advanced to the regional playoffs each of the past two years.

But now the Bears, entering their seventh year as a school, could be ready for more serious contention.

Mater Lakes, which went 20-9 last season before losing in the Class 3A regional semifinals to Florida Christian, has 14 seniors led by catchers/designated hitters Alffredi Ramos and Vicente Amor.

On Tuesday night, Mater Lakes scored a major victory when it beat defending Class 5A state champion Plantation American Heritage 3-1.

The Patriots are ranked sixth in the nation by Baseball America entering the season.

Amor went 3 for 4 and had a key double in the first inning to put Mater Lakes ahead early.

Bears pitcher Peter Llerena threw a four-hitter, striking out seven in six innings and giving up only an unearned run.

Jonathan Lorenzo closed the game in the seventh.
