SHAWNEE – Saturday's district double-header between Shawnee and Glenpool got heated as two Glenpool parents and head coach Trent Patterson were ejected following disagreements with officials.
“They weren't happy with the officiating in the extra inning loss and that kind of carried over into the second game, I think,” Shawnee coach David Rolette said.
Kristin Haddox lifted the Lady Wolves to a 4-5 overtime win in the first game and Shawnee rolled to a 14-4 win in the second.
Haddox drove in two runs for a walk-off single to bring the first game to a close after eight innings. She was 2-4 in the game and had a two run blast in the third to cap off a four run rally by the Lady Wolves that included RBI doubles from Sadie Smith and Tatum Sparks.
The girls gave up two runs in the first and two more in the sixth to force the extra inning. Glenpool earned a run on a sacrifice in the top of the eighth but Shawnee loaded up the bases on three hits with no outs to set Haddox up for the game-winning hit.
Baylie Enright struck out three and gave up nine hits in the first game and continued on to get the win again in the second game, allowing 12 hits, striking out three and walking two. The Shawnee ace has been dependable for Rolette and he knows he can count on her to get the job done when he needs her to.
“Baylie is just a trooper,” he said. “In that game she started getting tired so we told her to throw it over the plate and we'll try to play defense and outscore them and we were able to do that.”
Glenpool earned their first run of game two in the third inning but still trailed 9-1. They added another three in the sixth with a three run homer by Rylee McGeeley.
Tiara Blackshire singled to drive in Smith for Shawnee's first run of the game in the top of the first and the girls rallied for five more in the second capped on a three run shot by Haddox to go ahead 6-0. Sparks tripled to drive in two more runs and Smith followed with a triple of her own to trade places with Sparks.
Haddox completed the day 4-7 to drive in seven runs and Sparks was 3-8 with five RBI, a triple and a double. Smith was 5-8 with a double and drove in three runs and Hallie Wilson was 7-5 with a double and was a perfect 3-3 in the first game. Blackshire had a double and drove in two runs in the second game and Laynie Rimer went 3-4 in game two.
The two games followed a 6-5 extra inning win over Harrah Friday and was Shawnee's third and fourth of the week to extend their win streak to five.
“Our girls are playing really well, we're starting to execute. We didn't execute early in that first game but in the end we did,” Rolette said.
The win moves the girls into second in District 5A-3 with a district record of 6-2. They travel to face third place Coweta (6-3) Monday for the first of their last four district games. They meet next Saturday with Pryor who leads 5A-3 with an untarnished 8-0 record.
