No. 1 Lady Indians win 2

The Sequoyah High School softball team had a doubleheader on Tuesday night. The second game of the evening was against Jay. The Lady Indians had a rough go in the first couple of innings, but got on track and came through with 12-4 victory.

“After the third inning,” Sequoyah coach Jeff Turtle said, “the girls did a good job of laying off of outside pitches.”

The Lady Indians had a tough couple of innings to begin the game as Jay got on the board with a safety squeeze and then tacked on another run in the first for a 2-0 advantage.

But Sequoyah, ranked No. 1 in Class 3A on OSSAArankings.com, didn’t back down.

They answered back with two runs of their own in the first inning. Senior Megan Towie hit a sacrifice fly followed by a single by Sophomore Hayleigh Galvan to plate another run.

The second inning was no different for the Lady Indians as they fell behind 4-2 on a throwing error.

Sequoyah couldn’t get any runs across in the bottom of the second inning, but the Lady Indians came alive in the third after a few base hits. With two outs, freshmen Sydney Smith came through in the clutch and knocked in a run. After Smith’s hit, Jay would walk a batter, bringing home the tying run. Jamie Linch stepped in with the bases loaded and legged out an infield single, which allowed a run to score, giving Sequoyah a 5-4 lead.

Kelsey Leach followed with a two-run single.

Jay did not answer with any runs the rest of the game.

Sequoyah loaded the bases in the fourth inning and walked three times. The Lady Indians also had a hit by pitch, resulting in three runs early on in the fourth inning. With the bases still loaded, Leach deliverd a back-breaking single to plate two runs.

Jay was scoreless in the fifth inning, and Sequoyah won via the run rule.

In its first game of the night, Sequoyah knocked off Wagoner, 8-0. Kati Phillips picked up the pitching win for the Lady Indians.

“We got on base quite a bit and overall played pretty well,” Turtle said.

When Sequoyah resumes action later this week, it will be in Erie, Colo., to play in a tournament in the Rocky Mountains.

“Every team we will play in Colorado made it to there respective state tournaments last year,” said Turtle, whose team improved to 10-3.
