Tecumseh holds down Byng team
TECUMSEH — The Byng Lady Pirates scored a run in the top of the first inning but didn’t find a way to score again in a 6-1 district road loss to Tecumseh Monday evening.
Byng dropped to 12-21 overall and 9-5 in District 4A-2, while Tecumseh improved to 23-9 and 13-1. The Lady Savages are in the top spot in the standings, while Byng is third, just ahead of Ada (7-5) and Classen SAS (7-6).
Alona Cooper-Rochovitz got Byng started by leading off the game with a double. Hailey Alexander followed with a run-scoring single to right field and just like that, the Lady Pirates quickly grabbed a 1-0 lead.
Alexander stole second, but after Tecumseh ace Serenity Jacoway struck the next two batters out, the Byng runner was thrown out trying to steal third to end the inning.
Jacoway was pretty much in control after that, shutting out Byng over the final six innings. She finished with seven strikeouts, one walk and allowed just the lone run in the complete-game outing.
With the game tied at 1-1, Cooper-Rochovitz ripped a one-out double to right field in the top of the third inning. Alexander followed with an infield single, putting runners at the corners.
McKenzie Alford then bunted the ball down the first base line but Cooper-Rochivitz was unable to score on the play, leaving runners at second and third with two outs. Jacoway got out of that jam by forcing a pop-up to first base.
Alexander finished 3-for-3 to lead a seven-hit Byng offense. Torri Gustin went 2-for-2 with a walk for visitors.
Zariyah Masquas finished 2-for-2 with a double, a walk and a run scored in Tecumseh’s 11-hit offense. Katie Overstreet went 2-for-3 and scored twice for the hosts, while Vivian Hayes and Jessi Hull also had two hits each.
Byng hurler Hannah Wort surrendered just two earned runs in six innings thanks to a pair of untimely Byng errors.
