Lady Wolves Take Home Tournament Champion Title

By Jeff Mapes
Following a week-long absence due to rain-outs, the Lady Wolves softball team returned to action and won the consolation championship in the Silo Tournament.
Inclement weather forced Davis to postpone two games the week before. The Lady Wolves returned to the diamond this past week and went 3-4.
Davis lost a home district game to Comanche Sept. 6, then competed over the weekend at Silo.
The Lady Wolves played the first two days of the tournament against Broken Bow, Red Oak, Antlers and Washington. Davis claimed the consolation trophy Sept. 10 with wins over Colbert and Henryetta.
“The girls played good,” said Davis head coach Stefan Hunt. “I’m really excited for them. We needed that.”
Comanche 12, Davis 1 (6)
Each team scored a run in the second inning and were tied 1-1. The Lady Wolves’ lone run came on Addison Danker’s RBI-single that scored Kensley Barnes from second. Barnes reached safely on a one-out bunt-single.
Comanche broke the tie with seven runs in the fourth, two in the fifth and two in the sixth.
Besides Danker and Kensley Barnes, Alexis Barnes, Paige Miller and Shelby Moring each hit a single against the Lady Indians.
The loss drops Davis to 4-4 in the District 3A-2 standings.
Broken Bow 5, Davis 0
The Lady Wolves played their first game of the Silo Tournament Sept. 8 against Class 4A Broken Bow.
The game was scoreless until the fourth inning. The Lady Savages scored three runs in the fourth and two in the fifth.
Red Oak 4, Davis 1
The Lady Wolves played their second game of opening day against fifth-ranked Red Oak of Class A. Davis trailed 2-0 after four innings and cut the lead with a run in the fifth.
Red Oak extended its lead with two runs in the last inning.
Davis 3, Antlers 1
Davis posted the two-run victory Sept. 9 in its first game of Day 2 of the Silo Tourney. The Lady Wolves scored a run in the second and two in the fourth for a 3-0 lead.
Antlers trimmed the lead with a run in the fourth.
Washington 7, Davis 0
Davis faced top-ranked Washington Sept. 9 in the second game of Day 2. The Lady Warriors, coached by former Davis coach Tylor Lampkin, scored two runs in the first, one in the second and four in the fourth.
Davis 12, Colbert 0
The Lady Wolves qualified for the consolation game with their decisive win over Colbert. Davis scored a run in the first, seven in the third and four in the fourth.
“We put the ball in play,” said Hunt. “We jumped out on them from the get-go. In the third, we just started pounding the ball.”
Davis 3, Henryetta 2
Davis trailed 2-1 going into the last inning. The Lady Wolves rallied for two runs and the come-from-behind victory.
Shelby Courtney walked and stole second. Paige Miller reached on a dropped-third strike. Miller stole second, moving Courtney to third.
Alexis Barnes, who injured her leg the inning before on a slide attempt, returned to belt the game-winning two-run single up the middle.
“To end the way we did was nice,” Hunt said. “We needed that. It was great to be on the other end of one of those last-inning rallies.”
Davis left bases loaded in the third and stranded runners at second and third in the fourth.
This week, the Lady Wolves were scheduled to play a district doubleheader Sept. 13 at Riverside. Davis will remain in the district Sept. 15 at Lindsay.
