Timberwolves hang on in regional

YUKON — Norman North remains a long way from the Class 6A state fastpitch tournament, but the Timberwolves still have a shot after knocking Midwest City off 11-0 Thursday afternoon.

North, which was sent to the losers’ bracket following a 7-0 loss to top seed Yukon, meets Southmoore at noon today in an elimination game.

“We played like we hadn’t played in a week, which we hadn’t,” North coach Carol Testa said. “We came out flat against Yukon. We came back with more energy against Midwest City.”

North fielded the ball very well in both games, yielding just two errors in the opener, even as Yukon banged out 13 hits.

Against the Bombers, North got a one-hitter from Peyton Burton in the circle and committed a single error.

Daisha Reece smacked a pair of triples and drove in four runs against the Bombers. Desiree Hutchinson drove in two runs against Midwest City.

Testa will have to decide who to put in the circle before the T-Wolves and SaberCats meet. Katelyn Dollard, her No. 1 starter, got the call against Yukon on Thursday, before Burton pitched the late game.

“They both threw well today,” Testa said.
