ONLINE ONLY: Perry softball struggles in loss to Cleveland

CLEVELAND, Okla. — The Perry Lady Maroons didn’t seem ready to play in a 5-1 loss to the Cleveland Lady Tigers Monday in Cleveland.

“We never looked like we wanted to win,” Perry coach Bryan Hayes said. “It was kind of a rough day and not the way you want to come out at this time of year.”

Makayla Patton and Ally Reese pitched for the Lady Maroons, with Patton taking the loss. Perry’s only run came on a single by Chianne Taylor which drove in Tabitha Diaz. One of the keys to the Lady Maroons’ loss was not bringing runners home.

“We had runner’s in scoring position every inning,” Hayes said. “We just couldn’t bring them in.”

Perry (22-15) plays host to Woodward at 5:30 p.m. Tuesday. On Thursday, Perry hosts Newkirk for district with games at 5 and 7 p.m.

Pawnee sweeps doubleheader

PAWNEE — The Pawnee Lady Black Bears gain momentum heading into the district series with a 9-3 victory over the Cushing Lady Tigers and an 11-4 victory over the Pawhuska Lady Huskies.

The Lady Black Bears trailed 2-0 against Cushing, entering the bottom of the fourth. That’s when Pawnee’s bats came to life.

“We scored five runs (in the fourth) and three in the sixth,” Pawnee coach Chad Tsotigh said. “It took awhile to get our bats going. We left eight people on base and most of those were early. We got hot and got our timing down.”

Several players contributed offensively for Pawnee. Hannah Burkett was a perfect 4 for 4 with two doubles. Justice Waters went 4 for 4. Dorcas Hall-Zotigh went 3 for 4. Haylee VanDeventer went 2 for 3 with two RBIs. Hailey Evans went 2 of 4 with two RBIs.

Chrissie Collins started and earned the win, pitching five innings. Burkett closed the game.

In the second game, Pawnee again had to come back from an early deficit — trailing 4-2 before scoring four runs in the fourth. Tsotigh said his team kind of underestimated their opponent.

“We had our senior night ceremony before the game,” Tsotigh said. “We just made a couple of errors that you don’t want to be making at this time of year. It took us a little bit to refocus.”

VanDeventer started and was pulled for Burkett in the fourth, who went on to earn the win. Pawnee had several players contribute. Burkett went 2 of 3 for a double. Collins went 2 of 3 with two RBIs. VanDeventer went 2 of 4. Hall-Zotigh went 2 of 4 with two RBIs. Evans went 2 of 4 with two RBIs. Keely Roberts went 2 of 4 with an RBI.

Cushing will host Meeker at 5 p.m. on Tuesday. Pawnee visits Tonkawa/Deer Creek-Lamont for districts with games at 3 and 5 p.m. Thursday.

Glencoe tops Morrison to close regular season

MORRISON — The Glencoe Lady Panthers jumped out early and held on late in a 9-6 victory over Morrison Lady Wildcats Monday.

Glencoe (17-6) scored four runs in the second, one in the third and fifth before scoring three in the sixth. The Lady Wildcats rallied with four runs in the bottom of the seventh but it was too little, too late. The Lady Panthers out-hit Morrison 16-8.

Whitney Frank went 2 for 3 with a triple and an RBI. Alicia Place went 2 for 4 with a double and three RBIs and also earned the win. Robin Porter went 3 for 4 with three runs scored. Brianna Martin went 3 for 4 with a run and an RBI.

Glencoe travels to Barnsdall for districts on Thursday. Game 1 is at noon with Game 2 and three following. Morrison visits Olive at 4:30 p.m. Tuesday and will travel to Woodland for districts on Thursday.
