Hallsville pitcher Cassidy Ferrill pitched a complete game shutout and hammered a two-run homer as the Lady Bobcats blanked Sulphur Springs, 9-0 here Tuesday.
The Lady Cats found out quickly why Hallsville was ranked No. 4 in the state as they bolted to a 2-0 lead with the round tripper in the first inning of play.
The win moved Hallsville to 22-2 overall, 5-0 in district. Sulphur Springs fell to 16-6-1, 3-2.
“Hallsville is a very good team and against good teams you have to play mistake-free ball to give yourself a chance and we were not able to that. We committed seven errors and you can't do that and expect to win. Offensively we struggled against a very good pitcher,” said David Carrillo, Sulphur Springs head softball coach.“ Kasey Moore did go 2 for 2 against Ferrill with another solid performance at the plate. We are now 3-2 in district and with Texas High's 4-2 win over Mount Pleasant last night we are in a three way tie for second.”
Sarah Womack had the other hit for Sulphur Springs.
Katie Sapaugh was the losing pitcher giving up eight runs, two earned and 11 hits with five strikeouts. She threw 110 pitches, 84 for strikes.
Nine different Lady Bobcats had at least one hit each.
The Lady Cats JV team beat Hallsville 4-3 in Tuesday home competition. The two runs that won the game came in from a double hit by Mandi Stonaker. The winning pitcher was Summer Wyatt with five strikeouts. “This was a huge win for our girls against a solid team and made us undefeated in district play,” said JV coach Michele Namanny.
The Lady Cats will play two games Friday in Pine Tree.
The JV game is at 4:30 p.m. followed by the varsity contest at 6 p.m.
