The Team Lawton 14U TigerCats of the Davis Youth Softball Association won four straight games last week — including a pair of exciting come-from-behind victories on Saturday.
In beating the Dixon Extreme, 10-9, in the first game, Catherine Bernhardt pitched a scoreless third inning and added an RBI double.
But it was Brianna Lavergne’s game-tying double that set the stage for Shekinah Prewett’s RBI walk that forced in the winning run. Pitcher Hallie Tobia picked up the win.
In the nightcap, Dixon Pirate House fell by a run in a game that was highlighted by Davis shortstop Maya Lawton’s unassisted triple play. With bases loaded and nobody out in the second, Lawton caught a line drive, ran to second for a force out, then tagged an incoming runner for the rare fielding gem.
Juliana Moore was 1-for-2 with three RBIs and Carissa Hernandez, Alina Nelson and Prewett each drew RBI walks.
With Pirate House leading by one into the final inning, Lawton swiped home and, two walks later, Tobia’s free pass forced home Nelson with the winning run.
Katrina Toups tossed a scoreless second inning and Lavergne emerged with the pitching win.
In Lincoln last Friday, the TigerCats rolled to a 13-9 win over the Attitude.
Sienna Dwyer belted two doubles and walked while five pitchers combined in the circle with Shauna Wallace picking up her first win.
On Wednesday, Davis topped the Dixon Lady Pirates, 14-13. With the TigerCats collecting eight hits as a team, Emily Bonnel, Wallace and Lavergne each had two.
Moore turned in the fielding play of the game on a nice running catch in left field. Chloe Bolanos was solid behind the plate as hurler Wallace again picked up the decision.
Tracker Jackers 11, Giants 9 — Tracker Jackers Lauren Limburg (double) and Shay Thompson (single) both drove in two runs as Isabell Rubalcaba pitched three strong innings — striking out three and getting assists on all three third-inning putouts.
Lauren Wilcox smacked a deep double to right.
Caroline Korinke made two sterling plays afield and Courtney Rutherford added a web gem.
For the Giants, Lizzy Jones, Cate Scheuring and Gracie Hartsough each had two hits with Mimie LaValle, Maya Welss, Sophie Purves and Miya Johnston adding singles. Gabriella Lester, Maya Nunez and Mei McConnell all played well defensively.
