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.

12U division

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.

Giants 11, Blue Blizzards 7 — The Giants collected nine hits — two each by Gracie Hartsough and Cate Scheuring — as the winners jumped out to a 9-0 lead after two innings.

Brooke Martin and Maya Wells contributed singles.

Mimie LaValle, Sophie Purves, Miya Johnston, Lizzy Jones and Gabriella Lester shined on defense.

Tracker Jackers 14, Dixon Allgood Ink 5 — On a chilly Friday night in Dixon, Caroline Korinke’s first-inning, three-run double started the Jackers on the right foot.

Lauren Wilcox got a Dixon runner out on a dropped third strike while Shay Thompson had an RBI double and Layla Finch fanned two batters in the second frame. Wilcox ended the inning by tagging a runner out at the plate, then hit an RBI double.

Olivia Cooper pitched well, Courtney Rutherford was tough behind the plate and Noa Lipson contributed a web gem.

10U division

Pink Piece Signs 14, Siberian Tigers 13 — Bella Hyder and Emma Catacutan went 2-for-3 with three RBIs each for the winners.

Elise Wyman and Sanne Dequine collected singles with Wyman’s driving in another run.

Georgia Nichols made a nice catch in left and second baseman Piper Brandy and first baseman Dequine combined for two dazzling outs in the field.

Catacutan, Alana Turner, Hyder and Cate Fehrenbacher pitched well.

For the Tigers, Heather Breckner slammed two doubles, scored twice and had two unassisted putouts.

Kristine Schmitz went 3-for-3 and scored twice, while Katianna Higgins and Olivia Tomasello both were 2-for-3 with three runs scored.

Tara Reddy and Erika Wenner added singles (and Wenner scored). Stevie Spencer (five strikeouts in three innings) and Wenner shared the circle duties.

Ninja Monkeys 10, Mad Hatters 10 — There was no monkeying around for Halle Gabriel, who struck out six batters in two innings for the Ninjas. Lindsay Taylor had a strikeout in her two innings worked.

Alexandra Zurborg, Taylor and Gabriel had important fielding plays.

Green Chili Peppers 12, Hot Tamales 8 — Lily Gieschen pitched two strong Chili Pepper innings and spanked two singles for the winners.

Anna Harrison and Grace Scheuring contributed offensively, while La’Siya Earnest and Paige Jenness flashed slick leather in the field.

Coaches reported it was solid defense game with great base running by all the Green Chili Peppers.

Ninja Monkeys 11, Green Chili Peppers 9 — Sarah Griffiths scored twice and drove home a run with a hit for the Ninja Monkeys.

Sarah Lagattuta and Olivia Johnson both tallied twice and Gainna Cacciatore singled and scored.

In rallying from a four-run deficit, the Monkeys used terrific pitching efforts from Lindsay Taylor and Griffiths.

Web gems came in the form of plays by Lagattuta, Cacciatore, Johnson and Taylor.

6U division

Powerful Pandas vs. Pinkalicious — Maya Gagnon hit three home runs in this well-played matchup.

Kaytlin LeBar-Triebke also had a big day with the bat as did Aubrey McLin and Kaylie Adams, who were strong on the bases as well.

Runs were batted in by Adelina Whener, Anna Coleman and Ella Ackerman.
