Lady Roos 13, Arl. Martin 4
After spanking Arlington Bowie in its District 3-5A opener last week, 13-2, the Weatherford softball varsity dominated another Arlington club on Tuesday, nearly as badly, beating Martin’s Lady Warriors, 13-4.
Weatherford’s Kelsey O’Brien went the distance in the circle at Arlington’s Workman Field, recording a dozen strike outs while spreading out nine hits and yielding no runs through five innings, when the game was already well in hand.
WHS leadoff hitter Ashleigh Erb had a three-hit game, driving two runs home. Catcher Liz Konig also had a productive day at the plate, driving in four of Weatherford’s 13 runs.
The Lady Roos hitters chased Martin’s starter in the top of the fifth, lighting up the scoreboard with five runs, and adding another handful of runs over the next two frames.
Weatherford returns home on Friday, hosting Arlington High in another district contest, at 6 p.m.
Ladycats 20, Trimble Tech 0
It was three innings and out (of Fort Worth) for Aledo softball on Tuesday, as the Ladycats run-ruled Trimble Tech, 20-0. Lauren Craine handled the pitching duties for Aledo, while the entire batting order handled the route behind Haylee Bowden’s four-hit, four-RBI night.
At 2-0 in District 7-4A play, Aledo hosts Southwest in another district contest Friday, at 7 p.m.
Brock 15, Peaster 0
The initiation was a quick, but effective one on Tuesday, as Brock softball christened its new ball park, and its 2013 District 9-2A season, with a 15-0 win over Peaster.
Behind Haley Hardison’s four runs batted in, the Lady Eagles offense exploded for 14 runs in the second frame, adding the run-rule clinching 15th run in the third.
Brock is home again on Friday, entertaining Ponder on its turf field after the 5 p.m. JV game.
