Ladycats win pair Saturday at Birdville tournament

February 20, 2010 by Tony Eierdam

With brilliant pitching from Morgan Farley and Sarah Simpson to go along with an offensive output of 24 hits in 14 innings, the Aledo Ladycats softball team completed the round-robin Birdville tournament with wins Saturday over Class 5A schools Richland and Trinity.

The wins raise the Ladycats' record to 4-2. Aledo will continue non-district play at 7 p.m. Tuesday, Feb. 23, at Grapevine.

The Ladycats began with a 15-hit effort in a 7-1 victory over Richland.

Farley was the winning pitcher, allowing no earned runs on six hits with four strikeouts and no walks.

Kendall Kizer led the Ladycats with three hits, including two doubles, with two runs batted in.

Carolyn Clayton, Farley, Lauren Durham and Jordan Simons each recorded a pair of hits.

Aledo closed the tournament with a 4-3 win over Trinity.

Simpson was the winning pitcher, allowing three runs on five hits with five strikeouts and one walk.

Kizer and Farley each swatted two hits to pace the Ladycats. The game-winning hit came from Durham, whose fifth-inning single to left field drove in Farley in what turned out to be the game-winning run.
