MARSHALL, Texas – A two-run, walk-off homer in the seventh gave Gilmer a 6-5 win Tuesday over Liberty-Eylau in their 4A bi-district playoff series.

The two teams are schedule to play again Thursday at 5 p.m. on the East Texas Baptist University softball field. Should the game be postponed it will be Friday at Paris Chisum.

Senior Isabella Gunderson was the hard-luck losing pitcher. She only allowed three hits in the first six innings, finishing with a five-hitter and three strikeouts.

Keeley Norris, Tamara Norris and Laila Pegue led the Lady Leopards at the plate with two hits each. Keeley Norris had a triple, scored a run and drove in another run. Mariah Coleman singled and scored, while Tyrah Venable drove in a run.


Hawks shut out Liberty-Eylau

L-E went into the game needing one more win to clinch second place in District 15-4A. The Leopards get one more chance Friday at Pleasant Grove.

North Lamar defeated Paris Tuesday night, and a Panther win over Paris Friday could put L-E in a three-way tie if its doesn’t beat the Hawks.

Tigers drop third straight district game

Sulphur Springs rallied for three runs in the top of the seventh inning to top the Tigers, 4-2, dropping THS into a tie with Lindale, which defeated Greenville, 7-1, Tuesday.

With only one game remaining in the regular season, Texas High needs a win at Sulphur Springs Friday and a loss by Lindale to Greenville to capture the outright title and the district’s No. 1 postseason seed. Wins or losses by both would make Lindale the top seed since the Eagles won two of three games over the Tigers.

Jackson Halter’s 2-run single in the bottom of the sixth inning gave Texas High a 2-1 lead, but the Wildcats bounced back with three singles and a double in the top of the seventh against hard-luck starter Michael Sikorski and Chris Sutton.

Sikorski allowed just five hits, struck out five, walked two and hit a bater in taking the pitching loss.

Connor Allred was the only Tiger with two hits. Sims threw just 75 pitches in his complete-game effort.
