After eight days of no live competition, the Mustang Lady Broncos got back on the diamond to compete.
Mustang softball traveled to Southmoore on Monday to face off with the district foe. Mustang walked away with a win, 10-6
“I was very happy with their performance. It always makes you a little nervous after that many days, but we took care of business,” said head coach Jamie Roberts.
It is the second victory of the season over the Lady Sabercats. Now, Mustang will only see Southmoore in the Central Oklahoma Athletic Conference (COAC) tournament this weekend or if they run into them in the postseason.
Micaela Harcrow picked up the win from inside the circle for the Broncos as well as going 2-2 with two walks at the plate.
Harcrow continues to lead the team with a .577 from the dish on the season.
Cassie Passwaters, who is hitting .553 on the season, went 3-4 at the plate with four runs batted in on two doubles.
Passwaters leads the team with 24 RBIs.
Mustang jumped out early over the Sabercats with six runs in the first two innings before building a 9-1 lead in the fifth.
“We let them come back a little bit. I’m happy with the win, but every run matters at this point of the season,” said Roberts.
Southmoore clawed back into the game with five runs in the final two frames, but it wasn’t enough.
The victory for the Broncos put them at 11-6 on the season and 6-2 in district, which is tied for first place. Mustang owns the tiebreaker after beating Deer Creek head-to-head and also have a plus-15 run differential over Edmond North.
Mustang is back in action tonight at Putnam City West before hosting the COAC Tournament this Friday and Saturday.
