After a wild start to District 4-4A through the first four games, Pampa continues to stay atop the league lead earning another win on Tuesday.

The Lady Harvesters were able to defend their home field by run-ruling Borger in a 10-0 win that lasted five innings.

Offensively, Carsyn Hunt was 2-for-2 with an RBI, Cambree Dyer drove in a run and Briley Daniels was a perfect 2-for-2 with a triple and an RBI.

Canyon edges Randall

In a game that was pushed to Wednesday to an umpire shortage, the Canyon Lady Eagles were able to rally with a three-run sixth inning to earn a hard fought 4-2 win over rival Randall during a District 4-4A showdown at the Double Eagle Softball Park.

Randall led 2-1 heading into the bottom of the sixth until the Lady Eagles turned on the offense. Amber Bertoni tied the game, 2-2, on a fielder’s choice that scored Brenna Edwards. Canyon then took the lead for good on a clutch double from Kamrin Gutierrez that plated Addison Ralston and Bertoni giving Canyon a 4-2 advantage.

Randall did get a runner on in the top of the seventh, however, pitcher Brinley Hightower was able to get three straight outs to seal the victory.

Hightower threw all seven innings giving up nine hits but only an earned run with four strikeouts to get the win.

Edwards was 2-for-3 at the plate with an RBI and Maddie Hight was 2-for-3 with a double. Despite the loss, Kaley Wiseman was 2-for-4 with both RBIs for the Lady Raiders.

District 1-2A

Sanford-Fritch uses big inning to take out Sunray

In a battle for first place supremacy on the line, Sanford-Fritch used a big fourth inning that lifted the Lady Eagles past Sunray 10-6 at home on Wednesday afternoon.

The Lady Eagles (12-5 overall) stay perfect in the District 1-2A race at 4-0 while the Lady Bobcats (7-1) suffer their first loss on the year dropping to 2-1 in the league.

The inning was highlighted by a Varah Vaughn two-run single that put the Lady Eagles up 5-3. Fritch then got some insurance in the fifth when Lexi Bridwell hit a base clearing triple that scored three runs and gave the Lady Eagles an 8-3 advantage they’d never relinquish.

Bryleigh Carr helped out the Fritch offense going 2-for-4 with a homer and two RBIs. Emily Wade was gutsy in the circle throwing all seven innings allowing three earned runs with an eye-opening 12 strikeouts.

The loss spoils a tremendous offensive effort from Gray who hit two home runs for Sunray to finish with three RBIs.
