Lady Elks stay in tie for first place in 5-5A
The long ball played a role in Burleson’s 12-3 District 5-5A home victory over Crowley Tuesday night.
The Lady Elks (13-5, 5-1) used three home runs to stay in a tie for first place with Granbury and Mansfield Legacy. Burleson plays at Granbury Friday and plays at Legacy Tuesday.
Burleson scored multiple runs in five of six innings to win. The Elks scored twice in the first, fourth and fifth innings and scored three runs in the third and sixth innings.
“The girls did a great job of tacking on runs every inning,” Burleson coach Summer Owen said. “Crooked numbers win games.”
Lady Spartans fall
A six-run second inning spelled doom for Centennial’s softball team Tuesday as the Lady Spartans lost at Mansfield Legacy, 12-4, in District 5-5A play.
The loss dropped the Lady Spartans (7-12, 4-2) out of a first place. Legacy, Burleson and Granbury are now tied for first place with one game to play in the first-half of district.
“We are going to learn from our mistakes,” Centennial coach Shannon Sullivan said.
Centennial hosts Arlington Seguin Friday and plays at Granbury Tuesday to open the second-half of district play.
