Carney softball rolls to 12-6 victory over Agra

AGRA, Okla. — Andy Bailey and Shae Alford each doubled as the Carney High School girls softball team picked up a 12-6 victory over Agra Monday.

“Honestly it was a little sloppy,” Carney coach Lindsey Freeman said. “We stumbled our way through it and got the ‘W.’ That’s all that matters.”

Shelby Hover (11-2), picked up the win for the Lady Bulldogs, which improved to 11-2 with the win over the Lady Bearcats. Carney’s offense was aided by several walks and a couple of hit batters in addition to the big blasts by Bailey and Alford.

“It feels good to beat them,” Freeman said. “We’ve beat them twice, now. But we’re going to have to get them again because we play them Thursday in our conference tournament opener.”

Before Carney begins its conference tournament, the Lady Bulldogs will travel to Glencoe Tuesday.

PAWNEE — After nearly missing a home run earlier in the game, it was Keely Roberts’ glove that helped the Pawnee High School girls softball team top Chisholm 9-8 Monday.

With runners on first and second in the top of the seventh, Roberts fielded a hot shot to first and stepped on the bag for the final out to preserve the win.

“It was one of those types of wins that you hope builds on itself and you hope it lets the players know that you can play with anybody,” Pawnee coach Chad Tsotigh said.

Roberts’ glove may have been the final saving grace, but it was her bat that sparked the Lady Bears’ offense. With Chisholm up 7-5 in the fifth, Roberts double off the wall — missing a home run by inches — as Pawnee (16-10) tallied four runs in the fifth to take the lead for good.

“We were able to stay close, but that really turned the tide,” Tsotigh said. “It was a huge momentum shift. Suddenly, our heads were up and we were playing better. We put together two solid innings after that against one of the better teams we played this season and we got the win.”

Chrissie Collins (6-7) picked up the win for Pawnee, which travels to Blackwell Tuesday.
