Asher finally tops Lexington in 18 innings

ASHER —      It took three hours and 45 minutes for the game to be decided, but the Asher Lady Indians outlasted the Lexington Lady Bulldogs, 4-3, in 18 innings of high school softball action Thursday night.

     Because of the length of the game, a scheduled second contest was not played.

     “That’s a record for me (for number of innings coached in a game). My (previous) record was 10 innings,” said Asher head coach Tari Dubler. “Defensively, we got out of some tight situations. I think there was much to gain with an 18-inning game. We did a lot of growing up.”

     Asher finally notched the winning run in the 18th when Tarin Dubler singled and advanced to second on Tristan Milburn’s sacrifice bunt. Sarah Wauahdooah then hit a ball into center field,where the Lexington centerfielder and shortstop collided, enabling Dubler to score from second base for the winner.

     The Lady Indians trailed 2-0, entering the bottom of the seventh when Haylee Andrews hit a two-run single to tie it. Lexington countered with a run in the top of the eighth to go up 3-2 before Shelby Fleming’s run-scoring single knotted the game up again at 3-3 in the bottom half of that frame.

     Tarin Dubler (3-3) got the pitching win as she struck out 11 and walked only two. Lexington held a 14-12 edge in total hits.

     Fleming, Andrews, Milburn, Shayla Dekuyper and Desaray Goodgion collected two hits apiece for Asher.

     The Lady Indians, 3-3 on the season, are back in action on Monday as they host Paoli at 5 p.m.

  • Whitworth resets Ada's 3-point record

    As senior Walker Whitworth was bombing in the final five 3-point shots of his remarkable Ada High career, he was resetting the school’s triples record at 151. Across the way at the A-Town Barber Shop, barber Erick Gray did not even know he owned the record of 146, much less that someone was breaking it.
