ALTUS, Okla. —
Kendra Coleman threw a one-hitter as Northern Oklahoma College Enid’s softball team gained a split of a doubleheader against Western Oklahoma, 9-0 Tuesday.
Coleman allowed only a single by Nacona Presgrave in hurling the team’s sixth shutout of the season. She struck out eight and walked three.
Western scored five runs in the sixth inning of the first game to pull out a 5-2 win. The split left the Lady Jets with a 15-5 record.
“We bounced back well from a difficult loss,’’ said NOC Enid head coach Jamie Roberts. “We came out and jumped on them pretty well.’’
Coleman was backed in the nightcap by a 12-hit attack as the Lady Jets scored four runs in the first, two in the second and three in the sixth.
Aailyah Sebock led the attack, going 3-for-4 with a double and an RBI. She scored twice.
Taylor Todd was 2-for-4 with a double and scored twice.
Seika Shives was 2-for-4 with two RBI and tallied two runs. Shyanna Stigman was 2-for-3 with two RBI. Coleman helped her own cause by going 1-for-3 with an RBI and scoring a run.
The Lady Jets, in the first game, broke a scoreless tie with two runs in the fifth as Sebock drove in Sigman and Todd with a double.
That held up until the sixth when the Lady Pioneers scored all of their runs, thanks to four errors and a walk. The only ball hit out of the infield was a sacrifice fly.
“We just crumbled,’’ Roberts said. “They were bunting with two strikes because they couldn’t hit the ball. We just gave it away with some crucial errors. We made one error and it just snowballed.’’
Leitka Summer took the loss for the Lady Jets, allowing only six hits over six innings, striking out five and walking one.
Bailee Kaderka allowed six hits and no earned runs for Western. She struck out eight and walked one.
The Lady Jets are back in action Thursday when they host Northeastern A&M in a 2 p.m. doubleheader at Pacer Field.
