Weather dampers several area softball, baseball games

STILLWATER, Okla. — Mother Nature kept the Morrison Lady Wildcats from earning a victory Monday as rain and lightning halted the game in the third inning against the Coyle Lady Bluejackets at Coyle’s softball field.

The game was delayed twice in the top of the third because of lightning strikes in the area. The first delay was around 4:30 p.m. with the Lady Wildcats at-bat with the bases-loaded, no outs and a 1-0. After 30 minutes, play resumed and Morrison’s Liz Harshburger immediately drove in two runs with a single. It was raining steadily and thunder could still be heard. The Lady Wildcats scored five more runs before lightning was again spotted — causing another 20-minute delay. Play resumed briefly and the Lady Wildcats scored another run but after a third spotting of lightning the game was called in the middle of Kelsey’s Pennington’s at-bat.

Only six Lady Bluejackets batted and four struck out. Alicia Maker was Coyle’s only baserunner — reaching on a walk. She was thrown out trying to steal second. Since the game didn’t last five innings and Morrison didn’t achieve the 10-run mercy rule it won’t count.

Morrison plays at Woodland at 4:30 p.m. Tuesday. Coyle plays host to Carney at 4 p.m. Tuesday.

Ripley edges Agra in extra innings

RIPLEY — The Ripley Lady Warriors and the Agra Lady Bearcats played two competitive games this season. Monday’s game was no different as Ripley pulled out a 2-1 eighth inning victory.

“It was an exciting game,” Ripley coach Brent Meeks said. “Skyler Brunt pitched a good game and Christa Axtell was able to win the game with a single.”

Brunt helped her cause with a run in the fourth inning but Agra tied the game in the sixth. Axtell was able to regain the lead for Glencoe as she drove in Kelsi Allender with a walk-off single.

Agra coach Brooke Simms said it was a good game and that her team is focused on finishing strong before district.

“We want to fix something and work on the little things,” Simms said.

Perry routs Pawnee

PAWNEE — The rainy weather forced a change in venue and the Lady Maroons pulled away in an 8-2 victory over the Lady Black Bears.

“The fourth inning was one you don’t like to be in as a coach,” Pawnee coach Chad Tsotigh said. “We gave them some free bases and helped the around the bases instead of them earning it. ... I think in the sixth inning my girls thought they had to steep of a mountain to climb.”

Perry scored a run in the first and second before adding four in the top of the fourth and two in the sixth. Pawnee had to use three pitchers. Chrissie Collins started and took the loss and only lasted three innings. Hannah Burkett pitched two innings and Hailey Vandeventer closed the game.

Keely Roberts hit a single and Collins hit a double to record two of Pawnee’s four hits. Pawnee travels to Hominy for a three-way with Tulsa Rogers and Hominy on Tuesday. Perry hosts Community Christian at 5:30 p.m. Thursday.


Ripley and Drummond suspended with game tied at three.

DRUMMOND — The Ripley Warriors and the Drummond Bulldogs were tied at three in the sixth inning when Drummond’s batter went down with an injury. He dislocated his patella and after waiting for an ambulance rain was coming down and and lightning was in the area,

resulting in the game being suspended.

Drummond was at-bat with one out and the bases empty when the game was delayed. Leading the Warriors in hitting was Houston Twoguns with a triple and a single. Cory Sadler drove in two of Ripley’s three runs. Ripley will host the Maverick Mini Mart Classic starting Thursday.

Glencoe and Frontier was also rained out. The Panthers don’t play until Monday when they visit Cimarron. Frontier will travel to Ripley on Thursday for a tournament.
