BROKEN ARROW — Alex Jones threw a two-hitter, struck out 10 and scored the game’s only run, as Enid beat Sand Springs 1-0 at the Broken Arrow softball tournament Friday.

The Pacers, 3-5, earlier beat Sperry 9-4 and were shut out by Coweta, 2-0.

Enid is tied for first in its pool going into today’s action. The Pacers play Owasso at 10:30 a.m. and Catoosa at 2:30 p.m.

Jones, against Sand Springs, reached on an error in the first and eventually scored on another Sandites’ error.

The Pacers committed eight errors on the day, but ended a five-game losing streak with the win over Sperry.

“We’re improving in some areas,’’ said Enid coach Lee Linsenmeyer. “One of our problems is our focus. We’re getting a little lax, which is what is causing a lot of our mistakes. A lot of those errors weren’t on tough plays. We’re not making the simple, routine plays.’’

Linsenmeyer said he felt the Pacers left too many runners on against Sand Springs.

The Pacers did have nine hits against Sperry. Megan Mayberry was two for two, with two runs scored, a triple and three RBI. Ty Washington had a double and two RBI and scored a run.

Jones was two for two with two runs scored. Ali Seibel scored a run and struck out two and gave up only one earned run in getting the win on the mound.

Erin Downing had a hit and scored a run. Shelby Reed scored a run and drove in another run. Kaylee Clark and Haley Hudson both had hits.

The Pacers had only two hits — singles by Downing and Jones — in losing to Coweta. Jones had five strikeouts and gave up only one earned run.
