Savanna stings Latta to win title

Byng —

Savanna defended its title in the Byng-Konawa Back to School Classic with a 6-2 victory over Latta Saturday night.

Savanna — which was runner-up in the Class 2A Fastpitch Tournament in 2012 — scored five of its six runs in the top of the first inning. The Lady Bulldogs had two hits in the early outburst, but Latta committed three costly errors.

Leadoff hitter Rosie Martinez reached on an error to start the game. Hannah Lot then singled and moved to second on an error. Jordan Wilson singled, and Martinez scored. Lot scored on an error, and Wilson scored on a fielder’s choice. Two other Lady Dawgs, Bryn Houlton and Taylar Haynie, reached base on fielder’s choices and later scored on passed balls, all before an out was recorded. The Lady Panthers then got three straight outs, but not before finding themselves in a 5-0 hole. 

Wilson made it 6-0 with her RBI triple in the top of the second, but Latta and pitcher Maria Priest settled in and allowed only four more base runners the rest of the way.

But runs were hard to come by against Savanna ace Houlton, a University of Kansas recruit, who struck out nine in the contest.

In the bottom of the fourth Latta was finally able to break through on  Houlton. Maebree Abney and Priest both singled, and Jordyn Scott ripped an RBI double to left to put Latta on the board.

Latta added another run in the sixth after a double by Madison Abney and an RBI single by Matison Worcester to get within 6-2. 

Latta outhit Savanna 8-6 but could not string many hits together.

Priest struck out six batters in defeat. 

In the victory, Lot went 2-for-4 with two runs scored. Wilson was also 2-for-4 with a run scored and an RBI for Savanna. Shelbey Parnacher was 2-for-3 to lead Latta at the plate.
