OKLAHOMA CITY — The Moore Lady Lions had a little revenge on their minds, after Santa Fe eliminated them from the state softball tournament last season. This year, Moore did the same to Santa Fe, beating the Lady Wolves 12-0 at Hall of Fame Stadium.

The Lady Wolves got off to a rocky start, as Moore scored three runs in the first inning, as Drew Wright crushed a two-run homer with two outs.

Santa Fe had their chances, as they had runners on first and second in the bottom half of the inning, as Brittney Osborn hit a single, and Sierra Bronkey drew a walk. But with one out, the Lady Wolves hit into a double play to end the inning.

In the bottom of the third, Santa Fe had another scoring opportunity, as Calie Null was hit by a pitch, Amanda Cain reached by error, and Osborn drew a walk.

Evan Gray then hit a fly to shallow left field, and Null tagged up and tried to get a run, but was thrown out at home plate. The Lady Wolves loaded the bases again, when Bronkey drew another walk, but Morgan Russell struck out to end the inning.

Moore went on to score a run in both the fifth and sixth innings, as they took a 5-0 lead.

The wheels fell off in the top of the seventh as the Lady Lions scored seven runs to pit them against Yukon in the semifinals.

The Lady Wolves lost a great group of seniors that reached the state tournament each of the four years that they played.

Santa Fe’s Tela Lovingshimer, Angel Ogbeide, Osborn, Whitney Price and Russell all played in their last game on Friday afternoon.

Osborn plans on continuing her career at Wichita State, while Russell will play at Louisiana State University.

All is not lost however, with several key contributors back, including pitchers Bronkey and Gray, Hayden James, Amanda Cain, Null.

The Lady Wolves finished their season 29-8.
