Two at-bats after Williams scored the inaugural run for Alcovy, K. McDonald had an RBI single that scored Makenzie Johnson from third. Alexis Hernandez drove in A. Munoz for an RBI single. Then, McDonald later scored on a passed ball.
At the end of the fourth, Alcovy had taken a 4-2 lead and never looked back.
CeCe Williams accounted for the Lady Tigers’ fifth run after Johnson brought her across home plate in the fifth inning. Alcovy’s final run came in the top of the sixth inning when Hernandez’s RBI single scored MacKenzie Parrott.
Alcovy’s defense did its job all night, too. In fact, the defense sealed the win on the final play.
From her second base spot, Kaitlyn Williams caught an infield fly ball for an out and quickly turned it into a double play when she threw a Woodward Academy base runner out at first on the same play.
Lamb described the outcome as a “team effort.”
“They’re all softball players, not girls who play softball,” Lamb said. “They got the Tiger down in them to fight. And, even though we went scoreless the first three innings, they stuck with it. I told them [in the post game huddle], ‘From top to bottom, you guys were focused for the full seven innings.’”
