The Mustang softball team learned that they were approved to compete in the slow pitch season this spring on March 6. With spring break being last week, the Lady Broncos had just one full week of practice before preparing for their inaugural season in the slow pitch game.
Mustang played Bishop McGuiness at home in game one on Tuesday and dominated the Irish 16-1 in a run three-inning run-rule. The night cap featured the Lady Broncos and Moore in a battle of two of the state’s top high school softball programs. The Lions jumped out on Mustang and took a 10-3 lead with two innings to play.
From that point forward it was all Mustang, as the Bronco girls held the Lions scoreless for the remainder of the game and scored seven runs in the sixth and seventh innings to force extras. In the bottom of the eighth, Mustang was able to scratch the winning run across the plate and start the slow pitch season off 2-0.
Mustang will hit the road today to compete in the Elk City tournament today, Friday and Saturday.
