District Champs

Pauls Valley, Oklahoma — It’s been several years since the Pauls Valley Lady Panthers have won a district fast pitch title. They went into Thursday district game at Lone Grove as a big underdog, but emerged as the district champion.

Behind the arm of Kaylie Upton and some timely hitting the Lady Panthers won the best of three series in two games. The Lady Panthers won the opener 2-1 and then rallied in the nightcap for an 8-7 win in extra innings.

In the opening game PV scored a run in the top of the first and a run in the third for a 2-0 lead. Abby Gamble opened up the game with a double and scored on Shania Beck’s single.

Gamble would lead off the third with her second double of the game and score on Upton’s double to give PV a 2-0 lead.

Thats’ all Upton and the Lady Panthers would need. Lone Grove would put runners on base every inning and had the bases loaded once and had  runners at third in three different innings.

Each time PV would work out of the jam as they allowed only a run in the sixth off of a fielders choice and a double. Upton gave up only five hits in the opener while striking out five.

In the second game Lone Grove took advantage of its base runners scoring a run in the first and two more in the second off of three hits for a 3-0 lead. Beck would walk to start the fourth for PV and score with two outs on an error.

Lone Grove would take advantage of two PV errors in the fifth to plate four more runs and open up a 7-1 lead. The Lady Panthers responded in the sixth with five runs.

Clarissa Mars started the inning with a single. She advanced to second as Maranda Carnell walked.

Kaylie Wolfe reached on an error to load the bases for Kylie Wolfe. Kylie Wolfe reached on a roller up the middle scoring Mars. With one out Upton walked to score Carnell. Madeline Crawford would double scoring the Wolfe sisters.  Beck would follow with a grounder that scored Upton and cut the Lone Grove lead to a run.

Mars would lead off the seventh with a single. She would move around the bases on Kaylie Wolfe’s single and score on Kylie Wolfe’s grounder tying the game and sending it into extra innings.

Rachel Mantooth would single with one out to give PV hope in the eighth. Mantooth would score on Mars double as PV took an 8-7 lead.

Upton and the Lady Panthers would retire Lone Grove in order including Upton’s eighth strike out of the game to end it.

Pauls Valley will now advance onto regional action next week, one step closer to state
