SOFTBALL: No. 5 Texas A&M clips Arkansas, 2-1

COLLEGE STATION, Texas — The University of Arkansas softball team narrowly fell to the Texas A&M Aggies, 2-1, on Friday in College Station, Texas.

Arkansas (19-8) was led by senior captain, Chelsea Cohen, in the circle. She went six innings, gave up one run, on one hit, while striking out one. She received the no decision as Arkansas fell on a game-winning single from Cali Lanphear in the seventh inning. Texas A&M starter Mel Dumezich went seven innings and gave up one run on four hits. She struck out nine and received the win.

“I thought we played excellent tonight,” head coach Mike Larabee said. “Chelsea threw a great game, basically a one-hitter. We played great defense and I thought that we competed well.”

The Aggies struck first as Meagan May shot a solo-homerun over the leftfield wall in the bottom of the first. Cohen retired the next two batters including a strikeout of Dumezich to end the inning.

Arkansas evened it up in the second as Clarisa Navarro led off the inning with a walk. She would come around to score three batters later as Gee lined a double off of the rightfield wall. Her 19th RBI of the year tied the score at one.

Cohen cruised through the Aggie lineup in the next three innings as she retired nine of the ten batters she faced. Her only casualty came when she hit Dumezich on the elbow. She rallied and got Cali Lanphear to groundout to end the fourth.

The Razorbacks showed life in the fifth as Sierra Bronkey reached on a fielder’s choice, Wallace reached for the third time of the night on a walk and then two batters later Chloe Oprzedek walked to bring up Nicole Schroeder. She gave a great effort but went down swinging and the Hogs stranded three.

  • 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.
