Tough slate this week

Lady Bulldogs facing top teams in 5A, 6A


Monday night the Lexington Lady Bulldogs were back on the diamond hosting Dale and Newcastle.

They dropped both games – a 16-3 loss to Dale and a 13-11 loss to Newcastle.


“The best way to explain the Dale game is that they had three home runs and scored nine runs. We had three homeruns and score three,” head coach Monty Ervin said.

“We struck the ball well at times, but we’re just inconsistent.”

Brodie Anderson had two solo homeruns, one in the first and one in the fourth. Marleigh Givens had one solo homerun in the second inning.

Marisa Northrup, Baylee Rillema and Marleigh Givens each had one hit.


In their second game, Lexington held a 6-0 lead after the third inning.

Newcastle scored seven runs in the fourth to move ahead by one.

The Lady ‘Dawgs snatched the lead back in the bottom of the fourth when two runs scored. Kiely Givens grounded out to score one and an error scored the other.

Lexington added three more runs in the sixth inning.

But, Newcastle wouldn’t go away. They scored six runs in the seventh to retake the lead and win the game.

“Our defense let us down. You can’t give a team five outs in one inning. That’s hard to recover from.”

Lexington had four errors.

They were in Washington on Tuesday for games with the Lady Warriors and Harrah.

Thursday and Friday they are in Oklahoma City for the Hall of Fame Shootout. Southmoore, Westmoore, Cache and Bixby are on their slate.

“All those teams, except Bixby are top teams in 5A and 6A. It’ll be tough, but the only way to get better is to play good competition.”
