LC-M mows down PN-G

LITTLE CYPRESS —

Using a dominating mound performance by senior standout Raven Cole and timely hitting up and down the lineup, the Little Cypress-Mauriceville Lady Bears cruised past the Port Neches-Groves Lady Indians 7-2 in District 20-4A play at Lady Bear Field Tuesday night.

Cole was masterful all night as she tossed a complete-game one-hitter, striking out 14 while walking just two.

“Raven was masterful out there,” said LC-M coach Dena Adkins. “She really had command all game long. We played a little ‘iffy’ defense behind her there in that second inning. Other than that, the kids played really well.”

Meanwhile, the Lady Bears (16-4, 2-0) pounded out 13 hits against PN-G (11-6, 1-1) pitchers Maci Dean and Shelby Valentine.

Chelsea McLain went 3-for-4 with two runs batted in.. Morgan Babineaux was 2-for-4. Angel Villanueva went 2-for-3 with a RBI while Kayleigh Roy was 2-for-4 with two RBI.

The Lady Bears got eight of their hits from their No 6 through No. 9 batters.

“Chelsea really stroked the ball tonight and has seen it so well all season, ” said Adkins. “Babineaux, (Hope) Russell and Angel (Villanueva) really give us confidence that we can put runs on the board at any time.”

It’s definitely a big week for the Lady Bears, who defeated Livingston 1-0 in their district opener, as they welcome Nederland to Lady Bear Field Friday.

LC-M and Nederland tied for the 20-4A title a year ago.

“It’s a game both teams look forward too and prepare for all during non-district and tournaments,” said Adkins. “Our girls have been waiting on the next one and so have the Nederland kids. It’s still early, but both teams want to prove something. Two quality teams will get to battle it out on Friday.”

The Lady Bears struck first in the bottom of the first.
