Who’s tired? NOC routed at Seminole

SEMINOLE, Okla. — Northern Oklahoma College Enid softball coach Jamie Roberts thought the Lady Jets might be playing Seminole at the right time Saturday.

The Belles were playing their fourth doubleheader in as many days and Roberts was hoping “they would be a little tired.’’

Just the opposite.

Seminole (21-3, 31-7) run-ruled the Lady Jets twice, winning the first game 10-1 in six innings and the second game, 17-9 in five innings.

The Belles had 20 hits on the day and took advantage of 19 walks — nine the first and 10 the second and four hit batters.

“They are on a roll,’’ said Lady Jets coach Jamie Roberts. “I don’t know how else to say it.’’

Shyanna Sigman, on a forgettable day for the program, had an unforgettable day for herself.

Sigman had six RBI the second game with a grand slam homer and double. That matched the number of RBI she had going into the game.

“She needed that,’’ Roberts said. “That’s something we definitely hope we can build on.’’

Selika Shives was 3-for-3 with two doubles in the nightcap. Avery Walker was 2-for-3 with an RBI as the Lady Jets had 11 hits, the same as Seminole.

However, they couldn’t match Seminole’s power as the Belles hit five homers on the day, three by Alexis Watson.

Watson had two in the opener in going 3-for-3 with four RBI. She was 3-for-4 in the nightcap with four RBI. She had a home run and a double. She scored four runs.

Alexandra Casey and Samantha Barry also homered in the first game for Seminole on a day where the wind was blowing out.

“When you saw the flags blowing, you thought it was one of those days where a lot of home runs would be hit,’’ Roberts said.

Ace Summer Leitka took the loss in the first game which Seminole ended on the run-rule with six runs in the sixth. Leitka struck out eight, but walked nine and allowed nine hits.

Shives took the loss in the nightcap, allowing 10 hits and 10 runs in 31⁄3 innings, while walking six and striking out one.

Reliever Marissa Dominguez walked four and hit four batters in one inning.

“We can’t give a team like Seminole that many free bases,’’ Roberts said.

The Lady Jets dropped to 11-10 in conference and 31-14 in being swept for the second time this season by Seminole.

“We just have to put this one behind us,’’ Roberts said.

NOC Enid will host Carl Albert in 2 p.m. doubleheader Monday at Pacer Field.�
