Softball/Baseball playoffs

Aledo, Brock softball advance up brackets

Staff Report

Game 2 of the Class 4A, Region I quarterfinal between Aledo and Burleson Centennial on Saturday lacked the white-knuckling drama of Friday’s 12-11 Ladycats’ win, but the result was the same.

Aledo did have to come back in the game, as they had the night before, as the Lady Spartans got on the board first, in the first frame. A couple of early errors cost Aledo, but the AHS girls made up the 2-run deficit with three third-inning runs to give them the permanent lead.

Tori Gore worked the circle for the Ladycats, surrendering no earned runs as the Ladycats won the game, 7-2, taking the series in two games. Gore went the distance for Aledo, with the defense behind her tightening up to shut down the Centennial hitters through the final frames.

Aledo meets El Paso Chapin in the Regional semifinals at a date/site to be announced.

In the Class 2A brackets, Brock softball also moved to the regional semifinal round with a sweep, beating Whitesboro, 4-1 and 6-3, on Friday and Saturday.

Krysten Marr handled pitching duties in both contests, fanning 15 hitters in the 14-inning span, while scattering singles and only one extra-base hit.

Brocks bats were active in both games, aided by nine errors committed by the Lady Cats defense. Kaitlyn Farmer had an RBI double in Saturday’s clincher, with Shambry Sanders knock in a run with a triple.

The Lady Eagles move to the regional semis facing Mt. Vernon at a date/time to be determined.

Good fortune has brought more notice to both clubs. Aledo has moved up the rankings to No. 10 in the Coaches Poll, with Brock sitting at fifth.
