Asher wins big; Tupelo plagued by errors

Oklahoma City —

It wasn’t supposed to end like this for the third-ranked Tupelo Lady Tigers.

In by far the toughest first-round matchup at the Class A Slow-Pitch State Tournanent, the Lady Tigers developed a bad case of error-itis in a 16-6 loss to Pontotoc Conference rival and fifth-ranked Asher Indians.

Tupelo committed four of its six errors in the game during a 10-run Asher explosion in the top of the fifth inning that proved to be the Lady Tigers downfall.

The Lady Tigers led 1-0 after a quick three innings thanks to a two-out rally in the bottom of the second. Keara Bourland drew a two-out walk, went to second on an Asher error and scored on an RBI single by Amber Cosar. Bourland scored all the way from second on a close play at the plate.

Asher finally got on the scoreboard with three runs in the top of the fourth, aided by Tupelo’s first error of the game. Sarah Wauahdooah provided the big blow of that frame — a two-run triple over the head of  Tupelo’s Kirsten Parker in left field.

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.
