Maidens Softball Secure Bi-district Championship
The Haskell Maidens traveled to Seymour Thursday in the first game of the Bi-district Playoff Series against the Lady Panthers. The Maidens were District 7-2A Champs. Seymour landed 4th in their competitive District 8-2A behind Petrolia, Archer City and Windthorst. The Maidens came out strong with a first inning lead and never lost it. The Maidens had 19 hits and 19 RBIs, 4 walks and 0 strikeouts. Both Gabby Mendoza and Laura Fuentes went 4/5 and Julia Fuentes went 3/3. Defensively, Laura Fuentes was in the circle the entire game. Seymour collected 7 hits, 1 walk, 1 strikeout but only scored two runs as the Maiden defense deflated the Lady Panthers with bases loaded twice. Final score at the end of 5 innings was Haskell 19, Seymour 2.
Game 2 was in Haskell Saturday night. Again the Maidens jumped to an early lead with the hometown crowd tightly packed in their vehicles along the outfield chain link fence. The Maidens mustered 12 hits with Laura Fuentes collecting 3, Ryanna Rodriquez 2, and Maddey Williams 2. Again the Maiden defense was exceptional with 12 putouts. Lexi Jimenez pitched a complete game going 5 innings with 7 hits, 0 walks and 2 strikeouts. Final score Haskell 13, Seymour 2. The Maidens will play Junction Friday in a one game playoff in the Area round. Time and place TBD. Other district 7 teams were eliminated. Petrolia defeated Anson, Archer City defeated Albany, and Windthorst defeated Hawley.
