Lady Bobcats make quick work of Furr, 23-0

BAYTOWN, Texas —

There’s no question that the Orangefield Lady Bobcats could have scored as many runs as they wanted to Wednesday night in their area round playoff matchup against the Houston Furr Brahmans.

Fortunately for the 23-3A champion Furr, Orangefield “played nice.”

The Lady Bobcats pounded out 16 hits and took advantage of 13 walks to waltz away with a 23-0 three-inning victory at Baytown Lee High School Wednesday night.

“We felt comfortable about winning this one,” said Lady Bobcat coach Amy McLaughlin. “The kids adjusting to the pitching well because we’re much more accustomed to seeing fast pitches.”

Khandi Breaux got the win on the Lady Bobcat hill. She allowed two hits while striking out six.

The Lady Bobcats will now turn their focus on who wins the series between District 21-3A rival Bridge City or Sweeny next week in the regional quarterfinals.

Bridge City and Sweeny play two games Friday at Baytown Lee with Game One at 6 p.m. followed by Game Two 30 minutes after Game One. Game Three will be back at Baytown Lee Saturday at 2 p.m.. if necessary.

“That Bridge City-Sweeny series is going to be a good one to watch,” said McLaughlin. “It would be fun to play Bridge City again and all the kids know each other well. It would also be fun to play Sweeny to see somebody different.”

It was all pretty much over after the top half of the first inning as the Lady Bobcats put together 12 runs on seven hits and seven walks.

Katelyn Dickerson and Kelsey Ancelot drew back-to-back and a Breaux infield single plated Dickerson. Kaylie Evans then crushed a two-run double to left to make it 3-0.

After Haleigh Turley received a walk, Ashton Gatreaux belted a two-run double to left. Kylie Bradley scored Gatreaux with a single to left. Bradley scored when Haley Fontenot cracked a double to left to make it 7-0. Fontenot eventually scored on a wild pitch.
