Cowgirls win 2 more in district softball race

The DíHanis Cowgirls won twice in the past week in their drive for a playoff spot out of District 30-A.

The Cowgirls scored wins over Charlotte last Tuesday, March 25, and over Sabinal on Friday, March 28, to climb to 4-2 in the league race. DíHanis has only two more games left on the regular season schedule, with the next one coming Tuesday at Brackett. Game time is 6 p.m.

DíHanis (5-12 overall) trailed Charlotte 2-0 early, then scored single runs in the fifth and sixth innings to tie the game. In the top of the seventh, the Cowgirls exploded for seven runs to take a commanding 9-2 lead. Charlotte countered with a single run in the bottom of the inning, but the Cowgirls came away with a 9-3 win.

DíHanis totaled 12 hits against Charlotte, with two each from Sarah Craft, Kelly Taylor, Ashley Philipp, Lindsay Barton and Savannah Lopez.

Taylor drove in four runs, including a bases-clearing double in the seventh to give the Cowgirls the lead for good.

Barton went the distance for DíHanis in the circle, allowing just one earned run and striking out four batters.

On Friday, the Cowgirls again overcame a sizable deficit, rallying to defeat Sabinal, 11-9.

Sabinal led 8-4 after four innings, before the Cowgirls tied it with four runs in the top of the fifth and took the lead with three more in the top of the sixth.

In the win, Barton drove in four runs on a 2-for-3 day at the plate. Taylor was 2-for-4 and had two RBI. Shelby Gayre was also 2-for-3 in the Cowgirlsí 10-hit attack. Craft stole four bases and scored three runs, with two runs each from Gayre, Taylor and Jeanie Portis.

Barton again went the distance to pick up the win.
