Softball Roundup: Mayde Creek holds on for win over Seven Lakes, Cinco runs rules Morton Ranch

Posted

Alyssa Gonzalez did everything in her power to give Mayde Creek an upset win over Seven Lakes and did just that, as the Rams won 3-2 for their second district win of the season.

Gonzalez pitched a complete game and allowed just two runs on seven hits while striking out five and walking three.

Mayde Creek took the lead early and never lose it. Mackenzie Paredez hit a sacrifice bunt bringing home a run before Gonzalez came around to score on a passed ball after reaching on a single earlier in the inning.

The Rams then got a third in the bottom of the fourth, as Paredez hit a double to start the inning and Alexia Ruiz drove her in by hitting a double of her own.

Seven Lakes started to try to get back into things in the top of the fifth, as Dulce Franco drove in a run on a single, making it 3-1, and the Spartans got a second in the sixth with a homerun by Amy Abke, but Mayde Creek was able to hold on and secure the win.

Abke took the loss for seven lakes despite a solid performance on the mound, going six innings and allowing two earned runs on five hits while striking out nine and walking one.

Cinco run rules Morton Ranch

Cinco Ranch Ranch’s offense was on fire against Morton Ranch, leading to a 20-0 win for the Cougars.

It wasn’t just the offense that was on fire though, as Chela Kovar pitched all three innings of the game in her shutout, allowing two hits while striking out six batters and walking two.

Krista Burg started the scoring in the bottom of the first with an RBI double before Amanda Croteau drove in another run on a single. Mariah Hinojosa then drove in three more on a double before Burg came up and drove in two with a single, making things 7-0 Cinco after just one inning.

The Cougars didn’t let up in the second inning. Brynna Pate hit a two run single and Faifth Piper drove in three with a triple before Burg drove Piper in with a single of her own. Shelby Hodge then came to the plate and hit a two run double before Hinojosa hit a double of her own to score Hodge. Another run came around to score on an error before Savannah Henningson capped off the game with the biggest hit of the game, hitting a three run homer to make it 20-0. Kovar then pitched a clean top of the third, handing Cinco the win.

Paetow falls to College Station

Paetow was unable to overcome an early deficit in a 12-6 loss to College Station, as the Panthers lost 12-6.

College Station got on the board early, scoring one run in the first, but things were promising for Paetow as the Panthers answered back in the top of the second.

After the Panthers loaded the bases, Jacie Brown hit a two run single, Alicia Briones followed that up with an RBI single and Samantha Guillory came through with a sacrifice fly to give the Panthers a 4-1 lead.

But College Station responded immediately, retaking the lead with eight runs in the second and one more run in the third to make things extremely hard for a Paetow comeback. The Panthers scored two more runs in the fourth on a Guillory double and a Shy’Lynn Brown sacrifice fly, but they weren’t able to do any more damage and College Station capped things off with two runs in the top of the sixth to complete the win.
