  • Kingfisher run-rules Watonga for first softball win

Mya Dewberry and Addyson Willson drove in three runs apiece Thursday to help lead the Kingfisher High School softball team to its first win of the season.

The Lady Jackets runruled Watonga 14-3 in three innings at the Woodward Tournament.

That came after the squad let a win slip away in a 5-4 loss to Guymon earlier in the day.

Up 4-1 entering the bottom of the fifth, KHS surrendered four runs to the Lady Tigers.

Guymon had just four hits through four innings, but collected five of them in the fifth to get the walk-off win.

Kingfisher had been held scoreless until the fourth when it collected five straight hits and scored four runs.

Dewberry, Merrin Evans, Willson and Kynli Boeckman each drove in a run, but the lead disappeared late. There was no such drama against Watonga. Up 2-1 after an inning, the Lady Jackets broke it open with an eight-run second.

Siera Stitt and Natalie Dick got it started with RBI singles.

Dewberry followed with a two-run double and Willson added a triple that plated two more runs.

Gentry Taylor plated another run with her groundout to push KHS to a 10-2 lead.

Willson, Dewberry and Taylor Mills had two hits apiece.

Mills scored three times. Dick got the win as she scattered Watonga’s eight hits and allowed just two earned runs.

KHS opened the season Monday at Chickasha in a District 4A-4 matchup.

The Lady Jackets scored in the top of the first as Dick’s single pushed home Jancee Matthews.

However, Chickasha scored the game’s next nine runs before it was called in the fifth after storms rolled in.

KHS begins a huge home stretch beginning Monday when it hosts Bethany in a 4A-4 matchup.

The Lady Jackets then host Newcastle on Tuesday and then Thursday marks the beginning of the team’s annual Highway 33 Classic.

KHS has at least 10 straight games at home through Aug. 30.
