NORMAN — Edmond Santa Fe moved to 2-0 on the season with a 7-2 triumph at Norman North Monday evening.

The Lady Timberwolves led after the first inning, but Santa Fe pitcher Jobi Heath and the Lady Wolves’ defense kept Norman North from scoring the remainder of the night.

“After that (the first inning), Jobi Heath did a great job containing them,” Santa Fe skipper Rhonda Lawson said. “She only gave up one more hit the rest of the game.”

Heath improved to 2-0 on a 4-hitter. She has surrendered just five hits in two outings and struck out six Norman North hitters with just a pair of walks.

Trailing 2-1, The Wolves evened things out when Celeste Lagunas singled in Monica Jones, who had struck for a 1-out double. Lagunas also picked up the game-winning RBI in the fifth by hitting a ball deep enough to left to plate Jones, who reached on a fielder’s choice.

“Overall, I am very pleased so far,” Lawson noted. “We have a lot of things we still need to improve on and anytime we can get a win, it’s always a great outing.”

The Lady Wolves outhit the Lady T-Wolves 9-4 and committed half the errors of Norman North, 4-2.

Santa Fe will look to go 3-0 on Thursday, hosting U.S. Grant at 6:30 p.m.
