The Lady Wolf softball team opened the season with a bang at home on Monday. They pounded Little Axe on both ends of a district double-header, 13-0 and 12-0.
Kourtney Randall got the start in the circle for Davis in game one and the senior slinger dominated. Randall tossed a three inning no-hitter while ringing up five strikeouts out of only 10 batters faced. The lone baserunner for Little Axe reached on an error in the second inning to rob Randall of a perfect game.
On the offensive side, it was a hit parade. The Lady Wolves hit three doubles in the first inning alone, pushing across three runs in the process. A double-play to end the inning cut short what could’ve been a bigger rally.
Davis made up for it in the second, though. The Red-and-White sent 15 batters to the plate in the second inning and racked up seven hits, four for extra bases. They rang up the scoreboard for another 10 runs to hit the run-rule threshold.
After a few minutes in between games, the home continued its onslaught. Doubles by Gracie Eggleston and Alexis Barnes punctuated another three-run first for Davis. Then the Lady Wolves erupted for seven more runs on five hits in the second.
Davis needed two more runs in the bottom of the third to end the game early and the Lady Wolves delivered. They started the inning with four consecutive hits, including a walk-off single by Charlee Donaho put a fork in the Lady Indians.
Donaho also got the win in the circle in game two. She tossed three scoreless innings, allowing three hits while striking out four.
In total, Davis out-hit its visitors, 21-3 on the day. Noone had a better day at the plate than Eggleston, who went 5-for-5 with five doubles. Paige Miller went 4-for-5 with a pair of extra-base hits of her own.
Davis is now 2-0 on the early season with a road trip to Community Christian set for Thursday and a triad at home on Friday against Marlow and Pauls Valley. Its next district contest will be Monday in a home slate against Sulphur.
