The Poth Pirette softball team jumped out to an early lead on Nixon-Smiley April 5, and captured a 17-2 district victory.
Scoring 13 runs in the first three innings allowed Poth to put the game away early. An RBI triple by Maddie Caloss, an RBI single by Lauren Pape, walks by Adia Cruz and Jessie Montez in the first inning, and a passed ball during the second inning fueled the Pirettes’ offense early. Caloss boosted her batting average thanks to a perfect 2-2 day at the plate to pace the Pirettes.
Poth quickly matched Nixon-Smiley’s strong inning with a 2-run inning of its own in the second. The Pirettes tacked on another 7 runs in the third. A sacrifice fly scored Montez to start the scoring in the inning. That was followed up by Pape’s single, plating Tatum Lynch. Poth built upon its lead with 4 runs in the fourth. Morgan Urbanczyk singled to score Tatum to start the inning.
Despite Morgan Urbanczyk’s 2 for 3 performance at the plate last Tuesday, the Pirettes took a 13-3 loss at the hands of Hallettsville.
The bottom of the first saw Poth take an early lead, as Urbanczyk hit a solo home run. Hallettsville never trailed after scoring 4 runs in the third on a 2-run double, an error, and an RBI single. Hallettsville built upon its lead with 2 more runs in the fourth. Hallettsville added 6 more runs in the top of the fifth.
On April 11, Stockdale didn’t stand a chance as the Pirettes captured a 16-2 blowout 16-2 win in six innings.
Poth scored 6 runs in the sixth on an RBI single by Urbanczyk, a passed ball, an error, a 2-run single by Amanda Lyssy, and a groundout by Alison Jarzombek. Urbanczyk led Poth’s offensive threat, as she got on base three times in the game. She scored 3 runs and had one RBI.
Poth never trailed after scoring 2 runs in the first on an error and an RBI single by Cruz. The Pirettes added 2 more runs in the top of the third. Jarzombek started the inning with a single, scoring Pape. That was followed up by Montez’s single to send Amber Rangel home. Poth increased its lead with 5 more runs in the fourth. A clutch passed ball scored Urbanczyk to open the scoring in the frame.
Poth was scheduled to host Luling on April 15, and will take on the Lady Badgers of Karnes City this Friday, April 17.
