Lady Tigers blank DHS 12-0 behind Candies’ no-hitter
Abbie Hall, who suffered the loss for the Wildcats, had two strikeouts and walked three.
Hahnville scored first in the top of the second inning when Abby Boutte slap bunted for a single and beat the throw to first. She then stole second base on a passed ball.
Taylor Webre followed by knocking a single to right field and Coach Kenneth Vial gave Boutte the green light to round third base and head home for the score.
The Lady Tigers increased their lead in the fourth inning with Boutte reaching on a single to left field. Two batters later, Courtney Dutreix hit a double to the left field gap and scored Boutte from first base.
The Tigers blew the game open in the fifth inning. Elise deBruler and Amye Barre both walked to start the frame, which led to Destrehan head coach Jacob Thompson pulling his freshman pitcher. Elana Anderson came on in relief.
Alexandra Friloux then slap bunted for a single to load the bases and the next batter was hit by a pitch. Destiny Nicholas roped a single for another run and Boutte made the score 5-0 after recording a walk.
With the inning still alive, Dutreix hit a two-run double and Summer Melancon extended the lead to 9-0 with another double.
When deBruler came to bat, it marked a complete rotation.
deBruler and Barre drew walks to load the bases and Hope Mair knocked in two more runs with a shot down the third base line.
The Lady Tigers improved their District 6-5A record to 3-4 and 21-4 overall. The Destrehan Lady Cats are 1-6 in District 6-5A and 14-12 overall.
“I’m just glad the girls had a chance to win this game,” Vial said.
The Lady Tigers play Dutchtown on the road on Thursday, while Destrehan hosts East St. John.
