DIAMOND WRAP: Lady Bears roll on, slap Lumberton

LUMBERTON — LUMBERTON - It was just another “night at the office” for the District 20-4A champion Little Cypress-Mauriceville Lady Bears Tuesday night.

Senior ace Raven Cole tossed five innings, allowing just one hit while striking out 12 and she also hit a home run as the Lady Bears downed a much-improved Lumberton squad 5-1.

The Lady Bears ran their 20-4A record to 12-0 with two games remaining on the district ledger. LC-M host last-place Beaumont Central Friday before wrapping up the regular season on the road next Tuesday against a Vidor squad that is in a three-way tie for second with Port Neches-Groves and Nederland.

“It feels really great to have the district championship all to ourselves for a change, instead of sharing it with someone else,” said Lady Bear coach Dena Adkins. “We don’t just want to simply rest though. It would be amazing to go through such a competitive district without a loss. We’ve got Vidor next Tuesday at their place and they always match up well with us. We’ll just continue to work hard and try to improve on some things and get ready for the playoffs.”

The Lady Bears scored all the runs they needed in a big four-run first inning off Lumberton pitcher Maddi Ohler.

Mikaela Stegall drew a leadoff walk and Kaleigh Roy put down a nice bunt that was misfielded at first base. With one out, Cole drew a walk and Stegall was able to score off a passed ball.

Taylor Fraccastoro brought home the second run with a sharp single to right to plate Roy. Courtesy runner Danielle DeRamus rushed in to score on an errant pickoff attempt after the Lady Raiders try to gun down Fraccastoro at second. Fraccastoro came across to tally the fourth run after a Chelsea McLain grounder was misfielded.

Ohler held the Lady Bears to just five hits. She only struck out one and walked 10 but the Lady Bears left 12 runners stranded on the basepaths.

Cole did crush a Ohler offering deep over the rightfield wall for a solo bomb in the fourth inning while Morgan Babineaux picked up a pair of singles.

Cole, who walked four Lady Raiders, allowed just the one hit, a slow-roller put down by Taylor Harvill.

Hope Russell tossed the final two frames for the Lady Bears, allowing two hits while fanning two.

The Lady Raiders got their run in the top half of the sixth when Ohler crushed a double to the leftfield wall and scored on a two-out single to right.
