In case you missed it (softball)...
By Robert Przybylo
Mix in an early rain delay with some long games, and quickly an eight hour day turns into a 12-hour marathon at ASA Hall of Fame Stadium.
That was the story for me yesterday with the Class 6A-3A state slowpitch championships. By the time Muskogee, Bethel, Washington and Wilson had claimed their championships, several notable early outings became mere footnotes.
But here are some memorable moments from the first two rounds:
- Moore entered as the top team in 6A and had run-ruled Harrah in two meetings this season. But in the first round, Harrah had an 8-1 lead.
However, Moore charged back to win 12-9. Brandi Burna had a three-run HR while Leslie Martini pitched in with a two-run shot in the rally.
- Most entertaining game of the first round (maybe tournament) was Sequoyah-Tahlequah and Antlers in 5A.
The two teams traded one big inning after another big inning. Finally, Shayla Martin hit a two-run walkoff home run to give Antlers a 17-15 victory.
- In beating Union, Westmoore freshman Alysa Phillips had a good game, I guess. She has two home runs and five RBIs. Unfortunately for Westmoore and its followers, the bats were silenced against Muskogee in a 12-2 loss in the semis.
