SAC SOFTBALL: OBU knocks off No. 19 Lady 'Cats

SHAWNEE — The No. 19-ranked Rogers State softball team stumbled on Sunday evening as Oklahoma Baptist handed the Hillcats a doubleheader sweep to split the four-game series.

The Hillcats took a six-run lead in the opener before giving up seven runs in the fourth frame. The Lady Bison held on to the one run advantage for the 7-6 win. The nightcap took extra innings to decide the winner as the Hillcats took a 1-0 lead in the fifth but gave up the equalizer in the bottom of the seventh. OBU earned the walk-off 2-1 win in the bottom of the eighth.

GAME ONE

The Hillcats started strong but were unable to hold the lead as they were unable to bounce back from OBU’s seven-run, fourth frame.

In the top of the second Taran Threet got the RSU offense started with double to left field and Cailin Simpson followed with a walk. Desiree Ayarzagoitia belted a single to right field to bring Threet home and Ashlie Fauchier tallied a single to center to drive Simpson home.

Threet belted a RBI double in the third and scored on a two-run home run by Simpson to give RSU a 6-0 lead.

OBU scored all seven of its runs in the fourth with two outs. Shalee Cordell put the Lady Bison on the board with a RBI single. The Hillcats had a chance to get out of the inning in the next at bat with a fly ball by Dara Gray but a missed catch kept the inning alive and allowed a run to score. Consecutive walks allowed the third run to score. Amanda Harmon tallied a two RBI single and Hannah Morris belted a two RBU double to round out the scoring.

RSU left runners on base in the fifth and seventh innings unable to find the tying run.
