District 1-3A

River Road holds off Tulia 

An Angi Rivas two-run home run in the bottom of the sixth was the difference giving River Road its first district win as the Lady Wildcats earned a 4-2 win at home against Tuila on Saturday afternoon.

River Road had taken a 2-0 lead through the first three innings. Tulia was able to chip away tying the game with a two-run top of the sixth.

But in the bottom of the sixth, with Carolyn Koval on base, Rivas took a Kyla Rodriguez pitch and drove to right field over the fence for the dramatic two-run eventual game-winning homer.

That was Rivas’ only hit of the day but it couldn’t have come at a bigger time. Koval was 2-for-3 adding a solo homer. Koval also started in the circle tossing four innings without allowing a hit or a run with six strikeouts.

Ava Sharp tossed the last three innings getting six strikeouts and the win.

River Road is now 13-7 overall and 1-1 in District 1-3A. Tulia slips to 1-1 in district and 12-9-2 overall.

Bushland blasts Dalhart

The Bushland Lady Falcons are proving to be no match in District 1-3A after another lopsided victory on Saturday.

Bushland ran right over Dalhart 30-2 and have now scored 60 runs in just two district games.

Once again the big bats were out in full force for the Lady Falcons. Abby Howell, Chayney Snelson, Charley Spinks, Farryn McKown, Jayce Ornelas and Kylee Jordan all went deep.

Jordan ended with a banner afternoon as the second baseman ate up Lady Wolves pitching going 4-for-4 with that home run and drove in a career-best eight RBIs.

Howell hit for the cycle on a 5-for-5 day totaling five RBIs, finishing with two doubles, a triple along with her home run.

Bushland runs its overall record to 16-4-1 while moving to 2-0 in District 1-3A. Dalhart (8-8-1) is now 1-1 in the league.
