AFTERNOON UPDATE: Tahlequah, Sequoyah suffer 1st-round loss at state tournament

OKLAHOMA CITY — Offense came easy for Tahlequah for most of its 39 games this season. It disappeared in Game No. 40.

The Class 6A No. 2 Lady Tigers mustered only six hits and were ousted in the first round of the state tournament on Wednesday, falling to 6A No. 8 Broken Arrow, 5-3, at ASA Hall of Fame Stadium.

For the third straight season, Tahlequah's third loss spelled the end of its season. The Lady Tigers also fell to 0-3 in their last three slowpitch state tournaments.

Cache 6, Sequoyah 5

Sequoyah never made a living blowing opponents out in 2012. It was defense that carried the Lady Indians to the Class 5A championship last season.

This season, it was defense that cost Sequoyah a chance at a repeat bid.

The Class 5A No. 8 Lady Indians kicked the ball around to the tune of seven errors and lost to No. 5 Cache, 6-5, in the first round of the 5A state tournament in Oklahoma City.

After falling behind early, Sequoyah (14-11) managed to tie the game at 5 on Randi Hamilton's throwing error in the top of the seventh inning. But it was another Hamilton girl that ended Sequoyah's season only moments later.

After Lauren Mason and Nikki Horton singled to lead off Cache's top half of the seventh, Torey Hamilton singled up the middle to give the Lady Bulldogs a walk-off victory.
