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.

  • DSC_0114web.jpg SOCCER: JV Lady Zebras edge Verdigris, 2-1

    Claremore sophomore forward Brylee Brasher may have felt a little out of position Monday night during the junior varsity game against Verdigris.
    Normally, starting in the goal for the Lady Zebras varsity team, Brasher came out of her comfort zone to start at forward for the Claremore JV.
    The position switch proved to be a great decision for head coach Robin Sutherland, as Brasher showed a tenacity on offense that led to Claremore’s 2-1 win over Verdigris.
