No. 3 Oologah holds off Sequoyah, 10-7

SEQUOYAH — Claremore Sequoyah didn’t have much luck in trying to silence the Oologah Lady Mustangs Tuesday evening in Will Rogers Conference action.

With a ‘merry-go-round’ in the circle between Sequoyah starting pitcher Jodi Brown and reliever Amanda Chancellor, the Lady Mustangs needed only one inning to set the tone and produce a 10-7 victory.

Oologah tallied seven runs on one hit in the top of the second inning and then added three more runs in the third — highlighted by Hunter Jeffs’ two-run homer — to go up 10-1.

In the dreaded second inning for Sequoyah, Brown faced five hitters before giving way to Chancellor.

The Oologah hitters drew two walks and a hit-by-pitch before Brown was relieved by Chancellor. Hoping the decision would pay off, Chancellor’s outing was very short-lived as the senior third baseman/pitcher finished with two walks and two hit by pitches while allowing Oologah to take a commanding 7-0 lead.

Brown’s second time in the circle in the second inning saw Oologah first baseman Jennifer Hertel launch a two-run double to left-center field for the only hit in the inning.

Sequoyah, however, got on the board in the bottom of the second with Sydney Blue’s sacrifice bunt plating Katy Remy, who reached on a lead-off triple and went 3-for-4 in the game.

Oologah extended its lead to 10-1 in the top of the third with Jeffs’ two-run homer over the center field wall. Jayci Wang also tallied an RBI-single down the left field line to score Alex Edinger, who reached on a single.

Sequoyah tallied the remaining six runs in the third, sixth and seventh inning.  Randi Vincent’s two-run bunt single and Chancellor’s sacrifice fly to right field made it 10-4 in the third. Blue drove in two runs with a single to center field in the sixth and Chancellor crossed home in the seventh on Mackenzie Thomas’s RBI-single.

Thomas also contributed with a double in the sixth inning to finish 2-for-5 on the night.

  • 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.

    Finally, the NBA playoffs are set.
    It took the entire season to fill out those brackets.
    Overtime thrillers in Memphis and Charlotte, a go-ahead dunk in Oklahoma City to win a game and cap another scoring title for Kevin Durant, plus some good old-fashioned disinterest by Brooklyn ... all that, and more, on the final night of the season was needed before the eight conference-quarterfinal matchups in this season's NBA playoffs could be decided.
