Verdigris JH outlasts Sequoyah in 9-inning thriller

SEQUOYAH — The “Battle of Rogers County” bragging rights — at the junior high level — went the distance Thursday night between Verdigris and Claremore Sequoyah.

The Verdigris Junior High Cardinals erupted for seven runs in the top of the ninth inning to hold off Claremore Sequoyah, 12-5 in the Claremore Sequoyah Tournament.

Kyle Laymeyer’s two-run triple provided the boost for Verdigris and put the Cardinals ahead 7-5.

Up until the ninth inning, both Rogers County teams were deadlocked at 5-5 after the bottom of the fifth inning.

Verdigris applied pressure early in the top of the second inning with a 4-0 lead. Dylan Marveggio’s RBI-hit off a Sequoyah fielding error and Cole Woods’ RBI off a fielding error set the tone for Verdigris.

Sequoyah, however, answered with two runs in the bottom half of the second on Josh Goedecke’s RBI-single to right field that drove in Jackson Saul, who reached on a single, to trim the Verdigris lead to 4-2.

Verdigris tallied another run in the top of the fifth as Kade Keith plated Brady Smith with an RBI-single off Sequoyah relief pitcher Tristan Diaz to make it 5-2.

Sequoyah, though, wouldn’t back down in the bottom half of the fifth as the Eagles knotted the game at 5-5 on Tyler Isgar’s RBI-bunt off Keith. Nathan Stritzke and Hunter Chaisson also drove in runs for the Eagles.

After three scoreless innings — the sixth through the eighth — in which Diaz and Braden Beasley dueled on the mound, Verdigris finally broke the game open in the top of the ninth.

Lahmeyer’s triple got it going and RBIs by Smith, Keith and Beasley finished off Verdigris’ powerful offensive performance.
