Softball Roundup: Katy takes sole possession of first in district, Seven Lakes bounces back with Abke no-hitter

Posted

Katy run ruled Tompkins to move out of a tie for first place and sit alone atop the District 19-6A standings.

It was the offense that led the way for the Tigers, who had five players with multiple RBIs in the contest.

Katy came out 15-2 winners, ending the game in five innings, as Cameryn Harrison again got the win for Katy on the mound. The sophomore threw three shutout innings, allowing just one hit while striking out seven and walking one.

The Tigers pounced on the Falcons early and never looked back, after two runners reached base in the top of the first, Montgomery Henderson singled to score both players. Lauryn Soeken then stepped to the plate and hit a two run home run to give Katy a 4-0 lead.

After another runner reached base to start the top of the second inning, Kailey Wyckoff hit a double off the wall and then came around to score herself on an errant throw by Tompkins. Harrison then hit an RBI single as Katy continued to increase its lead. Two runners reached to start and Wyckoff hit another double to bring both of them home Ashtyn Reichardt followed that up with a double of her own to bring in another run and Harrison put things beyond a doubt with an RBI single, with P Watson then driving in another run to make things 12-0 Katy after three innings.

Katy continued to pile it on in the fourth, as Reichardt drove in another run on a single before Hailey Gore gave Katy its 15th run on a homer in the fifth inning. Tompkins got two runs back in the bottom for the fifth on a homer from Meagan Brown, but that was all the damage that the Falcons could do on the day.

Samantha Crumrin took the loss on the day, allowing 12 earned runs over five innings while striking out one.

Seven Lakes bounces back with Abke no-hitter

Seven Lakes bats weren’t hot against Taylor, but that didn’t matter.

After two straight district losses, Amy Abke wasn’t interested in a third.

The junior pitcher threw a no-hitter, as Seven Lakes came out 2-0 winners over Taylor and kept themselves a game back of Tompkins for second place in district.

Abke threw seven no hit innings, striking out 15 while walking none to secure the shutout and give Seven Lakes the win.

Things were scoreless until the fifth inning, when Meghan Kelly hit a single and was able to adance to third on an error. Haley Welch then laid down a perfect sacrifice bunt to score Kelly and give Seven Lakes the lead. After another scoreless half inning, Seven Lakes was at it again in the bottom of the sixth, Emma Wingate hit a double and stole third to put herself in great position with one out before Kelly drove in the run with a sacrifice fly.

And that was all Abke would need to close things out, as she struck out two in the top of the seventh to end things.

Kaelyn Lerma took the loss for Taylor despite a strong outing, throwing six innings and allowing one earned run on six hits while striking out two and walking none.

Hinojosa leads Cinco Ranch past Mayde Creek

Mariah Hinojosa was ready to hit anything against Mayde Crek.

Hinojosa single handedly outscored Mayde Creek, as Cinco Ranch came away with a 9-3 victory. Hinojosa with 4-5 at the plate, driving in five runs and hitting a homer to lead the way for Cinco over the Rams.

Chela Kovar earned the win for Cinco, pitching two innings and allowing two earned runs on four hits while striking out four and walking none.

Cinco jumped ahead in the top of the first, when Hinojosa drove in a run on a single and Kovar followed that up with an RBI double to make things 2-0.

Mayde Creek answered back immediately though, Alexia Ruiz grounded into a fielders choice before Mayde Creek homered to retake a 3-2 lead heading into the second inning. Amanda Croteau tied things in the top of the third with a solo home run, and Hinojosa gave the lead back to the Cougars the next inning with an RBI single and Hinojosa then made things 5-3 in the top of the sixth with another RBI single.

Cinco and Hinojosa weren’t done either, as Cinco put things to bed in the top of the seventh. Gissel Morales hit an RBI single to start things before Croteau drew a bases loaded walk and Hinojosa capped things off with a two run single.

The win kept Cinco in the final playoff spot in district.

Paetow tops Magnolia

Paetow came away with a huge win over Magnolia, keeping pace in a very tough District 19-5A, where they are only a game back of first place in district.

Shy’Lynn Brown earned the win on the night, pitching four innings and allowing two earned runs on three hits while striking out three and walking three.

Paetow took the lead in the first inning, when Peyton Luna hit an RBI single to drive in two, and Brown made it 3-0 in the third, driving in a run on a single of ther own. Magnolia got one run back in the fourth, and another run in the fifth to trim the Paetow lead to one but Paetow answered back in the bottom of the fifth.

After a single to open the inning, Mia Galarza hit an RBI single and both Sade Guerra and Luna hit sacrifice fly’s to give Paetow more of a cushion and the Panthers were able to hold off Magnolia from there to earn the win.

Jordan run ruled by Waller

Jordan fell behind early and couldn’t get back into it in a loss to Waller. Waller scored five in the second, nine in the third and two in the second to get the run rule win. Jordan had five hits on the day, with two from Madeline Williams, and one each from Cady Bowyer, Aislyn Duhon and Brooke Hidalgo.
