Cowgirls whip Roughriders - Central Oregonian
April 23, 2012Crook County High School
It wasn’t always pretty, but the Crook County Cowgirls took a pair of games from the Roosevelt Roughriders on Saturday to take the Special District I championship.
The Cowgirls took game one 11-1 in five innings, then held on to win game two 9-8.
The Cowgirls scored a pair of runs in the first inning of game one to take control of the game.
Those runs were all the Cowgirls would need as Crook County pitcher Loren Saenz limited the Roughriders to just one hit and one run in the game.
However, the Cowgirls added nine insurance runs in the top of the fifth inning to blow the game open. Roosevelt’s lone hit in the game was a solo home run in the fifth and final inning.
Kaylee Johnson had a double in the game for the Cowgirls while Emily Christiansen ripped a triple and Jena Ovens blasted a home run.
Game two was not nearly as easy for the Cowgirls. The Cowgirls scored a pair of runs in the first inning, then added four more in the second. With a 6-0 lead the team appeared to be in total control. However, Roosevelt battled back. The Roughriders scored a run in the bottom of the third inning, then exploded for seven runs in the fourth inning to take an 8-7 lead.
Crook County scored a pair of runs in the top of the fifth inning to regain the lead, then held on for the victory.
Taylor Walker, Ovens, and Saenz all had doubles in the game for Crook?County, while Saenz also blasted a triple in the contest.
With the wins, the Cowgirls raise their record to 11-7 and are guaranteed a a play-in game at the end of the year. Meanwhile, the Roughriders fall to 3-11 with the loss.
The Cowgirls are back in action on Wednesday when they travel to Bend to take on the Mountain View Cougars in a 3 p.m. contest.
Then the team will host Redmond in a doubleheader on Friday with games scheduled for 3 and 5 p.m.
