Tigerettes sent on Holliday
GRAHAM – After nearly a three-hour lightning delay Friday night, Jacksboro and Holliday finally got their Class 3A regional quarterfinal underway.
The District 7-3A rivals played for the third time in 2022 with Holliday coming out on top each time, this one knocking Jacksboro from the postseason in a 14-1, five-inning contest.
The Lady Eagles (30-2) stroked 12 hits and took advantage of four Tigerette errors. Holliday struck for two first inning runs and then added four more in the second, keyed by a two-run homer to center by Addison Lindemann.
Jacksboro looked to get back in the game in the second, Teagan Reynolds coming through with a single. She moved to second on a Lily Perez sacrifice and third on a wild pitch but was stranded as the next hitter struck out.
After a Campbell Jurecek single, Avery Bennett replaced Shelby Seaberry in the circle. The Tigerettes got out of the inning unscathed despite a pair of errors.
Jacksboro avoided the shutout with a third inning run, the first the Lady Eagles have given up in more than a month. Brailyn Tullous worked a one-out walk and came home as Rylee Mathis scalded a double down the left field line. She was left on a groundout to second.
The Lady Eagles struck for five runs in the fourth and three in the fifth. The Tigerettes threatened in the fifth. Payton Nail walked and Kylie Tullous reached on a shortstop’s error before a strikeout ended the 1:44 contest.
