Lady Wildcats fall to Dutchtown 5-3 in first game on new field
And while the teams finished regulation tied at 3-3, Dutchtown picked up two runs in the eighth inning for the win.
Dutchtown struck first in the contest, getting three runs in the fourth. But the Lady Wildcats wasted no time getting back into the game.
Michelle Haydel led off the bottom half of the inning with a hit to left field, and Amanda Rodriguez moved her to second with a slap bunt that went for a single. Kayla Kessling then loaded the bases with a single to left.
With only one out, Lady Wildcat Nicole Haydel stepped up to the plate and blasted a double that scored both Haydel and Rodriguez.
Abbie Hall knocked in the final run of the inning, hitting a fly ball to left field that pushed Kessling across home to tie the game at 3-3.
In the fifth inning, both teams stranded runners at third base and did not score. Neither team threatened in the sixth or seventh and finished regulation tied at 3-3.
In the eighth though, Dutchtown used a two-out rally to notch the winning runs.
“Both teams’ pitching did a great job today,” Destrehan head coach Jacob Thompson said. “Both pitchers gave up only one walk today, but we committed three errors to their one, which turned out to be the difference in the game."
Dutchtown is now 4-2 in District 6-5A and ranked 11th in the state.
Destrehan is 1-6 in District 6-5A after falling to Hahnville on Tuesday. The Lady Wildcats did pick up their first win on their new field the next day, defeating Academy of Our Lady by the score of 4-0.
