MCALESTER — Tahlequah scored early and plated runs in the first three innings to coast past McAlester, 8-1, on Monday afternoon in Pittsburg County. The Lady Tigers scored two runs in the first inning on Kortney Dry’s RBI single and on Whitney Wright scoring on a wild pitch.

Morgan Tarrance was dominant in the pitching circle for Tahlequah, tossing a complete-game one-hitter. She threw 62 of her 92 pitches for strikes while recording six strikeouts to only one walk. The run she allowed was unearned in the first frame.
