Lady Eagles Tie for First
With the 13-3 win over Lago Vista, the Lexington Lady Eagles tied Rogers for first place in District 25-AA. The two teams have tied the last two years for first place. Last season Lexington won the playoff game to earn the right as the first place team.
Lago Vista sent the message early they were in Lexington to play. They scored two runs in the top of the first inning to shock the Lady Eagles. The first four Lexington batters to the plate scored to offset the Lady Vikings opening. Megan Scantlin led off with a single, Ashton Johnston singled, and Jessica Parish was walked to load the bases. Courtney Robertson bashed a single to plate two runs. Haley Jatzlau singled as more runs scored. Jatzlau scored on an error on Caity Holt’s grounder. Holt moved around to score on walks and Scantlin’s double that ended the scoring for the inning with Lexington leading 6-2.
Three more runs came in the second on a walk to Parish, a double by Robertson, a single by Shelby Tackett, and a two RBI single by Jatzlau. Lexington was ahead 9-2.
The Lady Eagles put the game away in the third inning with four more runs. Scantlin led off with a single, Johnston singled, Robertson doubled home one run, Tackett tripled off the top of the fence, just missing a home run on Senior Night. Tackett then scored on Jatzlau’s ground out to third. Lexington led 13-2 going into the fourth. Neither team scored in the fourth inning.
Lago plated one run in the top of the fifth, but it was not enough to keep the game from ending due to the 10-run mercy rule after five innings.
