SAN ANTONIO -- After beating the Clark Cougars in a best-of-three bi-district playoff series this past weekend, the East Central Lady Hornet softball team is moving into the second round of playoff competition.

East Central and Clark squared off for game No. 1 April 29 at Northside Field, and the Lady Hornets earned an 8-7 win. East Central took an early 4-run lead in the top of the first inning, and led 7-2 midway through the fourth inning. But Clark came back with 4 runs in the bottom of the fourth inning to make it a 7-6 game -- and to stay well within striking distance.

The Lady Hornets added 1 run in the top of the fifth inning to make the score 8-6, and Clark responded with a run of its own in the bottom of the sixth to make it an 8-7 contest. Neither team could score in the final inning, but a 1-run margin was enough to give East Central the win and a 1-0 lead in the series. Taylor Doege earned the win on the mound.

Game No. 2 was played Saturday afternoon, April 30, but this time it was Clark that got the early jump in the game. The Cougars scored 3 runs in the first inning and 3 more in the second to take a 6-0 advantage. East Central came back in the bottom of the third inning to score 4 runs and cut the lead to 2, but Clark got 2 more runs in the top of the fourth to make it an 8-4 game. The Cougars then added 1 run in the fifth inning and 6 in the sixth inning to win the second game, 15-4.

With the series tied at 1-1, the teams took a short break and then took the field for game No. 3.

The first inning came and went with no score, but East Central changed that in the second inning by scoring a single run. The Lady Hornets then added 5 runs in the top of the third inning to take a 6-0 lead. Clark was able to scratch 1 run in the bottom of the fourth inning, but looked impressive in the bottom of the fifth inning as the Cougars scored 3 runs and made it a 6-4 game. Doege pitched a good game for East Central, the Lady Hornet defense stiffened when it needed to, and the sixth and seventh innings came and went without any further runs. When the final out was called, the Lady Hornets celebrated their bi-district championship.

East Central will now face New Braunfels in the area championship. The Unicorns made quick work of Roosevelt in the first round last week, and nothing will come easy for the Lady Hornets.
