Hahnville power surge paves way for first round victory

Hahnville finished the regular season just outside of the seeding needed to host a playoff game in round one, but the Lady Tigers went on the road as a potentially very dangerous No. 17 seed – and realized that potential Friday.  

The Tigers (19-14) earned a 10-6 victory at No. 16 Airline, led by Amberly Dempster’s 5 RBI day, to advance in the Division I non-select playoffs.  

HHS scored five runs in the sixth inning to take a 10-3 lead, and with it full control of the game.  

Dempster went 2-for-5 with five RBIs to lead the HHS offense. Jenna Cancienne went 2-for-4 with two RBIs and a run scored. Kloe White went 2-for-4 with a double, a run and two RBIs and Morgan DeJean went 2-for-3 with a triple three runs scored. Cancienne, White and Dempster each hit a home run in the game. Adeline Bertrand and Jordyn Chaix each scored two runs.  

White went the complete game on the mound to earn the win. She allowed three earned runs on nine hits and a walk, striking out two.  

Hahnville advances to round two where it will travel to No. 1 seed Dutchtown. That game is scheduled to take place Tuesday at 5 p.m. at Dutchtown.
