No. 1 Stonewall outlasts Roff

Roff — The Stonewall Lady Longhorns leapfrogged Binger-Oney and jumped to the No. 1 spot in the Class 2A rankings released on Monday.

On Tuesday, the Lady Longhorns defended that ranking with a 14-7 road win over No. 5 Roff.

Stonewall erased an early 2-0 deficit by scoring four runs in fourth, fifth and sixth innings to pull away.

 “We beat a real good team,” said Stonewall head coach Brian Davis. “I was kind of worried a little bit with us coming out No. 1 and how we would react. But they reacted to it well.”

Tori Brown gave Roff a quick 1-0 lead by lacing an RBI triple to the right-center field wall in the bottom of the first inning that followed a leadoff walk to Kaylea Riley. Brown would later trot home on a sacrifice fly by Kendall Sanford.

That score would stand until the top of the fourth frame.

Stonewall got RBI singles from Lauryn Humphers and Tameka Hamilton in the inning and was also aided by two Roff errors.

Humphers, a former Byng High School player, hit a ground ball single up the middle to score two more runs in the fifth and Tana Davis followed with a two-run homer to center field to push the Stonewall lead to 8-2.

Justice Dees added a two-out, two-run homer in the top of the fifth while Alexis Lambert also drove in a run in Stonewall’s third four-run inning. That frame was kept alive after Hamilton thought she struck out swinging and rushed to the dugout. But it was only her second strike and she responded with an infield hit that traveled about 16 inches and died near the foul line. The next two batters recorded outs for Stonewall before Lambert and Dees drove in their runs.

The Lady Tigers scored three runs in the bottom of the sixth on a towering two-run homer by Lauren Trimmer and a bases loaded walk to Nicole Swallow that rimmed their deficit to 12-5.
