Lady Mustangs

The Lady Mustangs topped Groesbeck in a 3-2 victory but fell to Fairfield earlier in the week.

In Friday’s game vs. Groesbeck, Delilah Dodson came out strong, hitting a single in the second inning and a double in the fourth.

“Groesbeck couldn’t get anything going as long as Jewel Smith was on the mound,” said Coach Miranda Butts. “Groesbeck managed two hits off [Smith], who allowed one earned run, walked one and struck out five during seven innings.”

Madisonville took an early lead in the bottom of the second with a single by Dodson that brought home Kaylee Smith. The Lady Mustangs scored another run in the fourth inning on a sacrifice fly by Jai Serguiff that brought in Dodson.

Groesbeck tied the game in the fifth inning but the Lady Mustangs pulled through and won on a hit by Kaylee Smith.

The Fairfield game was a 6-1 loss although Jewel Smith had two hits and an RBI. Smith also pitched and added three strikeouts to the books.

The Lady Mustangs traveled to Mexia on Tuesday and host Palestine on Friday.
