In their first game, Lexington fell in walk-off fashion to Lawton Eisenhour, 5-4, a 5A team.

According to the Ervin, Ike has a top 10 pitcher and he was proud of how the girls played against the tough 5A team.

“In our losses during this tournament we were right there, but we hit hard balls right at the defense.”

Lex had five hits in the loss, including a homerun from Cora in the third.

Game two was a 12-0 win over Hydro.

Bats were hot for Lexinton, as they scored 12 runs on 10  hits and 10 ribbies.

Despite the loss, Lexington outhit Cyril 8-7. Parker had two hits while Pack and Cora each had one.

Givens homered in the 5th inning.

They came away with the 6-2 victory on 10 hits and six RBIs.

Pack and KK had two hits each while Anderson, Givens, McKenzie Manuel, Sissney, Sample and Baylee Rillema had one each.

Coming up for the Lexington Lady Bulldogs is a sort of gauntlet to finish out district play.

Tuesday night they were headed to Chandler and tonight (Thursday) they are in Pauls Valley.

Friday night Lexington will be in Little Axe for a makeup game with the Lady Indians.

Monday night the Lady ‘Dawgs have a date across the bridge with the Purcell Dragons then they play host to Little Axe again on Tuesday.

“This is new territory for this team and how we respond will determine how we play.

“We’ve put in the work and so far we’re a little ahead of where I thought we could be at this point in the season. The next seven days will be tough. It’s ours to lose.”
