Lady Buffalos Squeak By Lady Rangers

A two-run sixth inning wasn’t quite enough to overcome the Buffalos

 

ESTACADA, OR - Saturday was a beautiful day for softball at Coe Field. After back to back home runs by senior Hailey Clark and Freshman Rylie Canifax, it wasn’t quite enough as the Madras Lady Buffaloes beat the Lady Rangers 8-6.

 

The scoring started early for the Lady Rangers (8-5, 1-3 Tri-Valley League), as senior catcher Hailey Clark took the first pitch from Lady Buffaloes (8-5, 3-1) sophomore Lizzie Steuart and smashed it over the center field fence for an early 1-0 lead. “When I saw that pitch,” said Clark about the home run, “I was like, ‘No. She [Steuart] needs to be punished!”

Freshman Rylie Canifax wants a part of the action as well, as she took the second pitch she was offered for a solo shot to make it 2-0. “When I saw Hailey do it [hit her home run], I was like, ‘OK, now I have to do one,’”, said Canifax, talking about her home run in the first. “I saw the ball right down the middle, well, and took a swing at it and it went over.”

Cowgirls Blow Over Lady Rangers During Storm

 The Cowgirls used the high winds to the benefit to win over Lady Rangers

 

ESTACADA, OR - Maybe it was the heavy rain. Maybe it was the wind. Maybe it was the scoreboard flickering on and off during the game. Either way, Friday’s wind and rain storm did not benefit the Lady Rangers, as they fell 13-2 in 6 innings to the Crook County Cowgirls.

 

Things did not start out well for the Lady Rangers (4-6, 0-1 Tri-Valley Conference), as the Cowgirls (5-4, 1-0 Tri-Valley Conference) stuck out 6 batters in the first three innings. Estacada held strong, only allowing 1 run in those 3 innings, but that’s when the rain and wind started taking its toll on the game.

A seven-run first inning secures the win for the Lady Rangers

 

ESTACADA, OR - Sophomore pitcher Emily Gant pitched a gem on Thursday. In 3 innings on the hill, Gant allowed no runs on only four hits, striking out two, and walking two in a 9-2 win against Tillamook on Thursday.
