Late surge lifts Cougarettes 3-2
By DAVID DEKUNDER
For the Canyon Cougarettes on Friday afternoon, the cliche of good things come to those who wait certainly applied.
Trailing in the first five innings to the District 28-4A leading New Braunfels Lady Unicorns, Canyon got the hits and breaks it needed in the late going to stun its crosstown rival 3-2 at Unicom Softball Field.
It was the first district setback for the Unicorns who remain in first place at 14-9 overall and 6-1 in district. The Cougarettes improved to 14-9 and 4-3.
“We knew if we kept plugging along, we knew something good would happen,” Canyon Coach Charles Adams said amongst the celebration of his jubilant team.
Sophomore Kylie Adams drove in the deciding run in the top of the seventh inning on a double that dropped into shallow left field in front of diving left-fielder Emilie Wotipka. The clutch hit scored Julia Best from third base and capped a great day for Adams who went 3-for-4 in the game.
Canyon came into the seventh trailing 2-1 before taking command. Outfielder Cheryl Dunn started the rally with a double that dropped into left field. After Dunn was sacrificed to second by first baseman Ranessa Reeh, Best hit a grounder that bounced off the glove of shortstop Misty Roberts and into the out
field bringing Dunn home for the tying run.
Unicom Coach Cindy Manley said errors cost her team the game. w “We played error free for the first five innings,” Manley said. "Then we started to commit the errors in the last innings. We played good but we didn’t hit the ball well.”
The Unicorns had command of the game in what was a pitching duel between the Unicorns’ Joy Orr and Canyon’s Denise Harborth. Orr shut out the Cougarettes through five innings and allowed only four hits during that span. Harborth kept Canyon in the game by pitching out of trouble in the third and sixth innings.
The Unicorns got things going in the third inning when Roberts reached on an error. Singles by Rebecca Espinosa and Wotipka loaded the bases. After one out, Jennifer Ybarra hit a deep sacrifice fly to righfield plating Roberts from third and giving the Unicorns a 1-0 lead. Harborth then settled down and forced third baseman Rachel Green to groundout and end the inning.
Adams praised Harborth for keeping herself steady during the critical third inning.
“She concentrated hard and got out of a bases-loaded jam by allowing only one run.” Adams said. "I thought that was a just a super job by her.”
New Braunfels added another mn in the fifth on a single, a sacrifice bunt and

a double. Wotipka, who went 3-4, doubled to the fence in right center field over the reaching glove of outfielder Marci Allen. Wotipka’s double brought Roberts home from second and upped the Unicorns lead to 2-0 going into the top of the sixth.
It was during the sixth inning that the Cougarettes started their comeback.
Adams got on base courtesy of an error. A wild pitch by Orr advanced Adams to second. Allen then Hew out to right-fielder Melinda Aguirre who immediately threw to Green at third in an attempt to mndown Adams between second and third. Adams then retreated to second. Green threw to second baseman Roxanne Blue, but Blue could not handle
the throw and the ball went into the outfield, advancing Adams to third base. Adams scored Canyon’s first mn on another Orr wild pitch.
Harborth was the winner by allow ing six hits and two runs, one of them unearned. Orr was tagged with the loss by giving up seven hits and three runs, one of which was unearned.Rangers get past Lockhart
