Lady Dragon Softball cruised to victory tonight at home over Keller Central 11-0. The game separation came in the 4th inning when the Lady Dragon offense exploded for 6 runs to put the night firmly out of reach and set the game on a course to be shortened by the 10 run rule.
Senior Lauren Long earned the win in the circle pitching two innings to pick up the W. She was one of three Lady Dragons to spin the ball from the circle, joining Kelly Shackelford and Brooke Martin.
The Lady Dragons, whose playoff hopes seemed nearly extinguished three games ago, now look firmly in the playoffs and have evened their district mark at 6-6 with two regular season games remaining. They are 19-11 overall.
Offensively they were led in hits by Gaby Garcia.
Up next they face Eaton at home on Tuesday, April 16th in their final regular season home game of 2019. First pitch is 7pm.
