Nocona
The Nocona Lady Indians lost a tough game at Muenster on Tuesday night.
The Lady Hornets won 13-2 after four and half innings due to run-rule, but most of the damage came in one inning for Muenster.
Nocona was coming into the game after a one-sided win against a smaller Saint Jo team, but knew it would have to play well if it wanted a chance to win.
The beginning of the game was competitive as the Lady Indians got on the board first with Skye Kirby driving in a run on a single.
The Lady Hornets loaded the bases up with no outs in the first inning, but Nocona almost got out of the jam unscathed before a passed ball and a single allowed two runs to come in and score. Muenster led 2-1 after the first inning.
The teams exchanged scoreless innings in the second and third before the Lady Hornets broke open in the game in the bottom of the fourth.
Muenster scored 11 runs on three singles, two triples, two walks, three fielding errors and a two-run home run. The Lady Hornets led 13-1.
Nocona needed to score at least three runs in the fifth inning to prevent the game from ending early due to run-rule.
The Lady Indians leadoff batter A Sutton got on base by drawing a walk. She got moved to second base on a groundout and later went to third base on a passed ball.
Heidi Atteberry then grounded out, but it was enough to get Sutton home for a run.
It looked like Nocona would score more as Shelby Sewell hit a single to get on base.
Avery Crutsinger hit a groundball that resulted in an error that allowed her and Sewell to advance to third and second base. Unfortunately, the next batter grounded out to end the game.
The Lady Hornets won 13-2.

Saint Jo
The Saint Jo Lady Panthers lost a high-scoring shootout at home Tuesday night against Era.
The Lady Hornets won 31-15, but the Lady Panthers avoided getting run-ruled in a game that was going their way in the beginning.
Saint Jo was ahead 8-2 after the first three innings and was playing well, until its pitchers started having deep troubles finding the strike zone.
Era scored 11 runs in the fourth inning and took a 13-8 lead and the Lady Panthers could not get the game back in control.
Too many walks and hit batters just could not keep the Lady Hornets off the board and scoring great in the final three innings.
While Saint Jo had success offensively, scoring runs in every inning in the game, it never had an explosive inning it needed to catch back up.
The Lady Panthers scored to keep the game going, trailing 13-9 after four innings, 18-12 after five and 21-13 after six.
Era then ended the game with another 10 runs in the seventh inning to make the final score worse than it was for most of it.
Saint Jo added two runs in the final inning to make the score 31-15 at the end.
Taylor Patrick, Jordyn O’Neal, Krista Reeves and Aubrey Morman each drove in two runs each to lead the team. O’Neal led the team with five hits while her, Patrick and Reagan Wilson each scored three runs each. The team finished with 16 hits in the game and drew four walks.
