Lexington had another good tourney, beating two 4A teams and two 2A teams. The only loss was to 3A Bellville. The Lady Eagles are 12-2 heading into district play which started Tuesday night.

Game 1

Lexington 7 El Campo 2-The hosts jumped out to an early 2-0 lead on the Lady Eagles. An error and a single with some pitched balls back to the screen gave El Campo two runs in the first inning. From that point on, Courtney Robertson put the quietus on the EC bats. They got only one more hit and three more baserunners via walks. The Lady Eagle offense came alive in the second inning. Two EC errors and singles by Kristin Boettcher, Marley Ross, and Mackenzie Brown put three runs on the board for Lexington. In the fifth Meghann Wrinkle singled, a passed ball, and a Madison Bexley single scored a run. A stolen base, an error, and a slap by Boettcher scored another run. In the seventh Bexley walked, moved to third on a wild pitch and passed ball. Bexley scored when the EC rightfielder dropped Hailey Jatzlau’s fly ball. Boettcher sacrificed Hailey to third. Jatzlau scored on Mariah Thornton’s single. Robertson threw 97 pitches in earning her sixth win.

Game 2

Lexington 16 LaMarque 6- Lexington lit up LaMarque in four innings. Lexington tallied five runs in each of the first three innings. The final run came in the bottom of the fourth to get the needed 10-run advantage. The first seven batters in the line up scored at least twice each in the massacre.

Game 3

Lexington 10 Palacios 0- Lexington scored four in the first inning and six in the third to halt the game. Lexington scored all ten runs with the aid of one hit. There were 13 base-on-balls, four errors, and two fielder’s choices that allowed the 10 runs to cross the plate.

Game 4

Bellville 5 Lexington 3-Bellville scored first in the top of the first inning on a couple of walks, a single and a Lexington error. Bellville added to their lead with a singleton in the third inning. Lexington answered with a run in the fourth inning. Robertson led off with a double, Bexley doubled putting runners on second and third. Kristin Boettcher singled home Jorden Kelley, running for Robertson. In the sixth Brown singled with one out, Wrinkle doubled to plate the second run of the game for Lexington. With a runner on third, Robertson hit a screamer down the third base line only to see the Bellville third baseman make a reaction play and catch the ball. A wild pitch to the next batter allowed the tying run to cross. The teams were tied 3-3 going into the seventh. Bellville got two singles and a double, bang, bang, bang. The two runs put them up and the Lady Eagles could not answer in the bottom of the seventh.

Game 5

Lexington 13 East Bernard 1- The Lady Brahmas were no match for the Lady Eagles. Lexington started slowly with only one run in the top of the first. Then the slaughter began in the second with a walk, and EB error, and six singles put up seven runs in the second inning. Five more in the top of the third meant the Lady Eagles were headed home early due to the mercy rule. Two singles, a walk, and two EB errors put up the five markers. Robertson held EB to one run on six hits.
