It's been a long time since Moore lost a softball game.

To be exact, it's been 35 days since Broken Arrow beat the Lions 4-3. Since then, they have rattled off 21 straight wins behind a potent offense and the pitching of senior Jenna Lynn.

And the Lions are showing no signs of slowing down after opening the toughest stretch of district play with an 11-1 victory Tuesday against defending champion Edmond North.

“It's just scoring runs so we can get off the field and reduce the amount of pitches Jenna has to throw,” Moore coach Stephanie Riley said.

Runs have been piling up, too. Moore has averaged 10.1 runs per game while allowing only 0.7 runs per game during its winning streak.

“We have the capability to hit the ball out at every position except for our two-hole, so that helps,” Riley said. “We've been working on hitting opposite field a lot lately, which has helped also to be able to score when we have runners in scoring position.”

Moore plays Mustang on Thursday in another crucial district game. To open the season, the Lions beat the Broncos 9-0.

PIEDMONT'S POWER SURGE

Piedmont has been hitting the ball out of the ballpark at an impressive rate this season with 37 team home runs.
