GLENCOE, Okla. — Claytin Beaver allowed no hits and struck out 10 as the Glencoe Panthers thumped Mulhall-Orlando 11-0 in five innings Tuesday.

J.K. Hadlock went 2-for-3 with an RBI, while Ty Lazenby also had a pair of RBI singles as Glencoe (5-1) blew the game open with a six-run third and a five-run fourth.

But the real story was Beaver (1-0), who picked up the win in his first career start.

“He threw really well for us,” Glencoe coach Tony Cazzelle said. “This is his first year pitching for us. He’s got a good arm and when it comes to small-town baseball, it’s all about the pitching. We need him to pitch for us and he did a fine job.”

Sean Smith also went 2-for-3 with an RBI for Glencoe, which will play Binger at 3 p.m. Thursday in the Tournament of Champions in Tuttle.

“There are six teams that made it to the state tournament in this tournament,” Cazzelle said. “It’s going to be a really tough three days for us, but it should be a good tournament.”

Ripley 11, Frontier 0

RED ROCK — The Ripley Warriors took care of business with five runs in the first inning to rout the Frontier Mustangs 11-0.

“Chandler (Salinas) threw well and just allowed an infield single,” coach Donnie Hoffman said. “He did a good job of throwing strikes.”

Salinas pitched three innings and struck out 10. Helping Salinas was plenty of offensive support. Houston Twoguns hit a double and triple. Trevor Ballard went 2-for-3. Dillon Moore added a double. Kaiman Allender got his first varsity hit and added a sacrifice fly.

Talon Harris took the loss for the Mustangs. Frontier (2-3) committed four errors and allowed 10 hits.

“(Ripley) is a pretty darn good team,” Frontier coach Mike Allen said. “We made a lot of mistakes and that doesn’t make for a good combination.”

Saturday at Central Oklahoma University, Ripley beat Moss 6-3 with Twoguns picking up the win. Senior Garrett Gosney earned the save. Leedey got the best of the Warriors in a 14-0 win. Corey Sadler took the loss.

“We played extremely well,” Hoffman said. “It was nice to play on a college field and go against two big programs.”

Ripley (5-2) starts play in the Leedey Tournament Thursday.


Perry 4, Pawnee 3

PAWNEE — Fueled by junior Hannah Burkett’s home run, the Pawnee Lady Black Bears had a chance to take down state powerhouse Perry, but Pawnee just couldn’t push that final run across as it dropped a 4-3 heartbreaker at home Tuesday.

“It’s somewhat of a small rivalry for us, so to have it come down to the wire like that was pretty exciting,” Pawnee coach Chad Tsotigh said. “I’m not sure they see it that way because they beat us so much, but we know we want to get a win against them.”

Pawnee (4-4) sturck first with a run in the bottom of the second before the Lady Marroons took the lead with two runs in the third. Perry added to its lead with two runs in the sixth before Burkett’s blast close the gap.

Pawnee had a chance to even the game with a runner on third, but the Lady Black Bears were unable to get that run across.

“We hit OK,” Tsotigh said. “Obviously we would have liked to have one more hit there.”

The Lady Black Bears won’t have to wait long for their shot at revenge. Pawnee will face Perry in the first round of the Perry Tournament at 4 p.m. Thursday.

“I think the girls will respond well,” Tsotigh said. “There’s a little mystique when it comes to Perry because they had such a dominant pitcher last year. I think when we hit that home run (Tuesday) their eyes really lit up and I think we’ll carry that over to the tournament.”

Carney 6, Agra 5

CARNEY — The Carney Lady Bulldogs scored early and often, but needed one last defensive stand to pick up a 6-5 win over Agra Tuesday.

Shelby Hover picked up the win allowing five runs on two hits and a pair of Carney errors as the Lady Bulldogs (2-0) remained undefeated.

Carney tallied three runs in both the third and sixth innings, before Agra made things interesting with four runs in the top of the seventh.

“It feels good to get the win,” Carney coach Lindsey Freeman said. “(Agra) usually has a pretty good team, so this was probably the first time in a long time that we were able to beat them.”

Carney will put its unblemished season to the test when they face Shidler in the Glencoe Tournament at 10 a.m. Thursday in Morrison.

Morrison 6, Oilton 3

MORRISON — The Morrison Lady Wildcats rallied in the bottom of the fifth to defeat the Oilton Lady Panthers 6-3 Tuesday.

“We jumped out to an early lead and then gave it up,” coach Tim Hatter said. “We took a couple innings off at the plate but we were able to get our bats going and stringed together some hits to retake the lead.”

Jacey Bales led the Lady Wildcats offense with four hits and three runs batted in. Kalie Vernon hit a run-scoring double in the fifth. Taylor Williams had a run-scoring single and scored. Jamie Lovely hit a run-scoring triple.

In the circle, Bales picked up the win — recording seven strikeouts and only walked one. The Lady Wildcats (3-1) start play in the Glencoe Tournament at 12:30 p.m. Thursday against the winner of Carney and Shidler.
