Waxahachie, Texas – March 10, 2017- It wasn’t the start to Sooner Athletic Conference (SAC) play that the Southwestern Assemblies of God University (SAGU) softball team was hoping for.  The University of Science & Arts-Oklahoma swept the Lady Lions 11-7 and 13-1.

Game One (L 11-7)

Game one was an offensive battle from the beginning.  The Lady Drovers started off with a bang, scoring four runs in the top of the first.  SAGU was able to come up with two runs in the bottom of the first. Kayla Milstead doubled through a hole at short stop, scoring Ashley Nop and Destinee Vindiola .

In the bottom of the second, the Lady Lions put three more runs across the plate. Baylee McBrannon singled to shallow left field, scoring Bailey Balloun . Destinee Vindiola reached base on a USAO error, and both Rieanha Cano and Ashley Nop scored in the process.

Heading into the top of the third, SAGU was in the lead 5-4.  Unfortunately, USAO scored four runs off of three SAGU errors.

SAGU’s Rachel Ray pitched all seven innings on the mound.  At the plate, Kayla Milstead went two for four.  She had one double and two RBI’s. Ashley Nop went two for four while scoring three runs.

For USAO, Jordan Detherage picked up the win. Dagan Lampkin went three for four at the plate with two doubles.  She had one RBI and scored four runs.

Game Two (L 13-1)

SAGU had trouble getting the bats going in the second game of the doubleheader.  The Lady Lions scored their lone run in the bottom of the second, when Bailey Balloun scored after a USAO missed catch.

Hannah Lee pitched four and one/third innings.  Ray came in relief for the final one and two/third innings. Bailey Balloun went two for two and scored SAGU’s one run.

On Saturday, the Lady Lions will continue SAC play when they host Mid-America Christian University .  MACU is currently 6-12 for the season and 1-1 in SAC play.  The doubleheader begins at noon and is on the SAGU campus.
