Young Chicks shine, defeat Duncan



"She pitched Monday night in Lawton, and we've got a lot of things going on with some of the girls away at basketball camp," Furr said. "[Gore] can play in a few positions. Even when she's not pitching, she can still contribute."

Catcher Tori Smith got two singles from her two at bats.

In game two, the Chickasha line-up put many more junior varsity and incoming freshman players in the spotlight, and they delivered with the four-run victory. Duncan took a 1-0 lead out of the first inning, but were blanked in the second inning. The Lady Chicks then took a 3-1 lead and never gave it up. With the score 3-2 in the third, a double from Sydney McHugh brought in two runs to take the lead to three. 

Duncan answered with two runs of their own in the top of the fourth, but Karlye Weber's second single of the night kick started the three runs Chickasha needed to put the game out of reach.

The second game also gave incoming freshman Dayanna Daniels her first chance on the mound. After getting through the first inning, Furr said he thought the young pitcher performed well in her first game scenario.

"She did a good job," Furr said. "I've seen her pitch in practice, but this is the first time I've seen her in a game. Most of what she threw were strikes and she gave us a chance to make a play on the ball."
