Lindsay Wade pitched out of trouble in the third inning, and Tahlequah went on to coast the rest of the way in a 10-5 victory over Skiatook on Tuesday.

Tahlequah pounded out 13 hits, led by Kortney Dry’s three-hit performance. She also drove in two runs.

The victory at Lady Tiger Field was Tahlequah’s fifth in a row since dropping its first game of the year to Muskogee at the Coweta/Claremore tournament last week. The Lady Tigers are now 23-1 overall and 7-0 in District 5A-3 play.

Tahlequah won again after breaking a 2-2 tie in the third inning. Randee O’Donnell hit a go-ahead double that scored Whitney Wright, and Kirsten Chase followed with a run-scoring single. Lainey Wallace capped off the three-run frame with a RBI single.

Tahlequah was able to take the lead because Wade tight-roped out of trouble in the top half of the third. With two outs, Mikayla Schulanberger struck out looking, leaving the bases loaded.

It was Tahlequah from there.

Wade picked up the victory, giving up six hits in seven innings in the pitching circle. She gave up five runs (none earned) while also striking out eight.

Marisa Girdner, Wright, O’Donnell and Chase all had two hits. O’Donnell, Dry both drove in two runs, and Bub Peters plated three runs.

“We swung it well,” said Tahlequah coach Matt Cloud said, whose team’s low point was committing five errors. “We played uncharacteristic defense or the game would of been 10-2. But we are starting to swing it, and we’ve got some home games in district play coming up.”

Tahlequah will step out of 5A-3 play on Thursday to take on Poteau before hosting Coweta on Monday.

No. 1 Sequoyah rolls

The No. 1-ranked Sequoyah softball team showed why it’s the top team in Class 3A on Tuesday, beating Inola 13-0.

The Lady Indians started quickly and never let off the has as they scored eight runs in the bottom of the first inning.

“We are hitting great and tonight was no different,” said Sequoyah coach Jeff Turtle, whose team will play at Oktaha on Thursday.

Sequoyah got a big lift against Inola from Symphoni Shomo, who marked her 16th birthday with two doubles, a triple and four runs batted in. Hayleigh Galvan finished things off for the Lady Indians, notching a bases-clearing triple in the third inning.
