DENISON, Texas (KTEN) - The Pottsboro Cardinals have been on fire these last few weeks beating Grand Saline, Boyd and Grandview on their way to the UIL regional semifinals.

The Cardinals will face White Oak starting on Thursday at 5 p.m. at North Forney High School in a best-of-three series.

Pottsboro players say that their success has been a combination of veteran leadership and young players stepping up at the right times. 

"We have a great group of guys," said Pottsboro pitcher and first baseman Aaron Massie. "We're younger but we also have a lot of seniors that really pulled together this year and taught the younger guys what it was like to win and work hard."
