WHS softball wins seed match in back-n-forth affair

Staff Report

The Weatherford Lady Roos put together a handful of runs in the fourth inning in a seed match to determine winner vs. runner-up placement in the playoff brackets against Arlington Martin, and as it turned out, they needed every one of them.

Fortunately for the WHS girls, three lead changes were all that occurred at Fort Worth Western Hills High School, as the Lady Roos held off rallies in the final two frames to win the game, 7-6.

In the five-run fourth, Darrian Ross and Abbey Cowan hit back-to-back doubles to begin the scoring. Kelsey Horton’s sacrifice turned into an error, and the scoring continued when Weatherford pitcher Kelsey O’Brien stroked the third double of the inning, scoring two. Liz Konig’s sac fly ended the scoring for the inning.

Things got interesting in Martin’s final at bat. The Lady Warriors mounted a two-out, two-run rally, finally put to rest when Horton fielded a scalding ground ball and got the force out at third to halt the comeback.

Weatherford had two-hit performances from Horton, O’Brien, Konig, Ross and Tawnye Bramlett. O’Brien helped her cause in the circle, leading the Roos with two RBIs.

Though no pairings had been announced, top-seeded Weatherford will likely meet District 4-5A Justin Northwest (fourth seed) in the bi-district round at a site and time to be announced.

 

Kangaroos chip away at Lamar pitching, win district contest, 3-0

Staff Report

Weatherford found itself in a pitcher’s duel through three innings Friday, reverting to small-ball tactics in the mid and latter frames to get some runs on the board. 

Arlington Lamar’s pitching staff proved pretty stingy, but WHS’ hurler Beau Burrows was not even handing out scraps, pitching a shutout in the Roos’ 3-0 win.
