Ada softball team books room at Heartbreak Hotel

Sep. 12—MCLOUD — The Ada High softball team booked a room in the Heartbreak Hotel after Friday's games at the McLoud Invitational Tournament.

In the opener, the host Lady Redskins pushed across a run in the bottom of the fifth and final inning to clip Ada 8-7.

Then, the Lady Cougars loaded the base in the bottom of the sixth inning but couldn't score a run in an agonizing 2-1 loss to Holdenville in the six-inning affair.

Coach Jeremy Strong's club, now 7-14, will try to step out of a six-game funk this week. The Lady Cougars were at Plainview on Monday and host Madill at 5 p.m. today. Davis comes to the Ada High Softball Complex at 5 p.m. on Thursday.

McLoud 8, Ada 7

The Lady Cougars trailed 7-3 early but scored two runs in both the top of the fourth inning and the top of the fifth frame to knot the score at 7-7.

Taycee Lewis led off the bottom of the fifth with a walk for McLoud and went to second on a sacrifice bunt by Graci Bishop. Lewis hustled down to third base on a passed ball and scored when Avery Soward hit a ground ball to the shortstop.

Ada collected nine hits in the game, led by Abbey Strong who went 3-for-4 with a double and five RBIs from her spot at the top of the AHS batting order. Rylynn Truett finished 2-for-2 with a walk and a run scored and Josie Morgan went 2-for-3 with a double and two runs scored.

Makenzi Burden and Trenity Duvall had the other Ada hits. Duvall drove in a run and Burden was hit by a pitch and scored a run.

Holdenville 2, Ada 1

Truett got an Ada comeback attempt started in the bottom of the sixth with a one-out, infield single. Later in the inning, Trenity Duvall and Josie Morgan drew back-to-back two-out walks to load the bases before the Lady Wolverines got out of the jam.

Holdenville scored the game-winning run in the fifth inning on an Ada error.

Holdenville finished with six hits by six different players — Ryleigh Hill-Tiger, Mady Belle McFarland, Tresley Dennie, Lily Mooney, Alivia Griesinger and Lilly Mooney.
