Lady Jays slip past WHS

WAURIKA — Although a four-game winning steak came to an end, Waurika’s softball team didn’t give it up easily, as Geronimo held on for a 5-4 victory in a well-played game at Lady Eagles Field.

The Lady Eagles out-hit the Lady Bluejays, 8-5 in the contest on Sept. 3, but Geronimo was able to take a lead in the fourth inning and held WHS at bay down the stretch.

In what began as a pitcher’s duel, Lady Eagles hurler Karrington Morris set down the Lady Blue Jays in order in the first three innings. But in the top of the fourth, GHS used a pair of singles, a double and the only error of the game to score four runs.

Waurika regrouped in the bottom of the fourth, when Megan Wade led-off with  single and Hannah Wade singled. Megan Wade was forced out at third on a grounder by Tylr Gunter, but after Skylar Bartling was hit by a pitch to load the bases, Alyssa Masoner ripped a three-run double that cut the margin to 4-3.

Geronimo picked up its final run in the top of the fifth, on a walk, a sacrifice bunt and a run-scoring single, and the Lady Eagles trailed 5-3.

In the bottom of the fifth, Courtland Henderson drew a lead-off walk and moved to second on a passed ball, before she scored on a single by Megan Wade. With the deficit cut to 5-4, Hannah Wade singled by was forced out at second on a grounder by Gunter.

Bartling was hit by a pitch to put runners at first and second, but Masoner grounded out to end the inning.Morris took the loss, giving up five runs, two of which were earned, in going the distance. She struck out five and walked five.
