Lady Cats fall to Lady Lions
The Lady Wildcats held their own defensively against Hamilton April 1 before and after the third inning, but that one frame did enough damage to open up a division win for the Lady Lions.
Alison Atkins started the batting frenzy for Hamilton with a lead off single but courtesy runner, Hope Manasco, was thrown out at second by Houlka’s Chianne Edington on Cheyenne Logan’s single. Taylor Brock advanced courtesy runner Lexy Cockerham and Hallie Dobbs’ double to centerfield started the scoring.
Kaley Loague reached on a pitching error and Taylor Hyland walked on to keep the keep the bases loaded and send Brock across the plate. Raimi Bryan’s two RBI double put the Lady Lions up 7-0 and Houlka’s Paige Graves finally stopped the bleed with a solo double play, fielding a line drive from Addie Thompson and stepping in the bag for out three.
In the fourth, Chianne Edington fielded a grounder and got it to Jesse Moore on first for an out, but a triple to centerfield scored another Lady Lions run. Graves hit Moore twice in a row for two outs to close the inning.
The Houlka girls couldn’t get their bats to warm up and the Lady Lions took the 10-0 win in five innings.
The Lady Wildcats fell 2-17 to the Lady Rams of Vardaman April 3 in five innings. Cara Martin was the pitcher of record and had a stolen base.
Coach Vicki Homan knew going in her team was full of youth and would take time to mature into the game.
“We have to learn to play together as a team and support each other,” Homan said. “We are young and inexperienced in many spots on the field. I have confidence we will mature into a better team as we gain experience from this season.”
