Moore, Southmoore each a win away from state berth

MOORE — Coming into the postseason, Moore coach Stephanie Riley said her team was playing well. She liked her team’s chances of advancing.

However, even Riley was surprised with how well her squad performed on the first day of the regional tournament. Facing U.S. Grant and Norman High, Moore outscored their opponents 33-0 in two games.

“We did really well today,” Riley said. “We stayed focused throughout the whole game. We hit well up and down the lineup — all 16 of them. We did really well.”

Moore began the day by knocking around the Generals 12-0. The Tigers then beat Putnam City 4-0 to advance.

The Lions then blasted the Tigers 21-0. They were keyed by a 13-run fourth inning to put the game away. Halle Malone hit the only homer of the game.

“Honestly, I didn’t think we’d hit this well,” Riley said. “I told the girls Norman has a really good pitcher. She is pretty good, and throws the ball in and out. She throws a pretty good changeup as well. For us to score 13 runs in one inning, it was something I was not anticipating. We just exploded offensively.”

Jenna Lynn continued her dominant ways on the mound and picked up both wins. She has only one loss on the season.

“Jenna has continued to be the catalyst of our team this year. She has done a great job working on her mental approach to the game, learning from last year’s state championship game,” Riley said. “Jenna does a great job of keeping batters unaware of what pitch is coming next.”

Across town, Southmoore also was hosting a regional tournament and had almost as easy of a time as the Lions.

The SaberCats rolled over Putnam City West 16-2 in the opening contest. Lindsey Stoeckel got the win throwing three innings of no-hit ball. Katelyn Brown was 2 for 2 with three RBIs.
