Making it look easy

Purcell senior Sandra Del Toro catches a ball at first base for an out. The Dragons host Washington at 5:30 p.m. today (Thursday).

Purcell pounded out 17 hits in a 10-2 victory over Tecumseh last week on the road to hoist their season mark to 8-1 and 3-0 in district play.

The Dragons led 2-0 after their half of the first inning only to have the Lady Savages knot the score in the bottom half of the frame.

Purcell came back to push across a trio of runs in the top of the second and never looked back.

Brook Fleming led the hit parade going 4-5 with three RBIs.

Lauren Holmes, Katelynn Carwile and Addie Stanton were all 2-4 at the plate. Stanton and Holmes both had RBIs while Hannah Buchanan was 2-5 with an RBI.

Chelsea Spain had a hit and an RBI. Missy Nimsey and Khia Tyler both had a hit for coach Sarah Jones.

Fleming struck out six in 5 innings of work in the circle. Carwile fanned four in relief.

“That was our only game for the week,” Jones said.  “It was really nice to finally play. We came out swinging and didn’t stop. Fleming and Carwile are a dynamic duo in the circle and our defense and bats are backing them up.” 

The Dragons did not play in the scheduled Piedmont Tournament last weekend because it was cancelled.

The Dragons were scheduled to play at Harrah Tuesday and host Washington at 5:30 p.m. today (Thursday). Pauls Valley is scheduled to play here next Tuesday at 5 p.m.

The Purcell-Washington junior high softball game starts Thursday at 4:15 p.m.

There is also a junior varsity festival here on Friday, Jones reported.
