SOFTBALL: No. 1 Hilldale drops Oologah, 5-3

HILLDALE — The Hilldale Lady Hornets had a pretty good idea that their game with the Oologah Lady Mustangs on Monday was not going to be easy. And it wasn’t.

The Lady Hornets, 27-4 and No. 1 in the OSSAA Class 4A rankings, scored four runs in the bottom of the first and made it stand up and the beat the Lady Mustangs 5-3 at Hilldale’s diamond.

Kyla Ibarra, who finished 2-for-3 with two runs batted in, kept the rally going in the bottom of the first with a single up the middle to score McKensie Plant and Toni McMillan with the third and fourth runs of the inning. She was aware how critical her at bat was.

“If it was down the middle or my pitch, I just wanted to swing hard,” Ibarra said. “That was a very big at bat. We needed to score the runs.”

Destiny Riddle started and got the win in the circle to improve to 22-3 on the season. She finished the game with seven strikeouts but admitted to struggling with her pitches the whole game.

“I didn’t throw to the best of my ability today,” Riddle said. “My defense played well behind me. That helps out a lot.”

The Lady Mustangs (14-11) put pressure on the Lady Hornets in every inning but the sixth. Five of the other six innings, Oologah had at least two runners on base but was only two cash in the fourth inning with its only three runs of the game.

After the Lady Mustangs left runners on first and third in the top of the first, Hilldale had its four-run outburst in the bottom of the inning. Casady Mills got things going with a one-out single to right and Riddle followed that with single between first and second with Mills moving to third.
