Freshman Pitcher Fuerst, Five-Run Second Inning Help Cougars Past Golden Eagles 6-5

A fine performance was turned in by Dustin Fuerst, a freshman pitcher out of Tomball, Texas (Spring High School). Fuerst entered the game in the fifth inning, and gave up only one run on one hit the rest of the way, good enough to earn him his first win as a Houston Cougar.
