  • Plainview continued its offensive barrage from Monday with an 8-7 walk-off win over Class 3A No. 3 Sulphur Tuesday.
    The Indians trailed 7-6 entering the bottom of the seventh, but rallied in their final at-bat. McKenzie Williams hit a bases-loaded RBI single to tie the game, and with two outs, Parker Stewart brought in Mykah Smith on an infield error for the winning run.
    The win makes it 21 runs in two games for Plainview (8-4), which defeated Madill 13-9 on Monday.
    "It just kept going back and forth," Plainview coach Alicia Foster said. "Every time they'd score, we'd step back up and put some up on the board. Tonight, they went to work from start to finish."
    Williams led Plainview at the plate, going 4-for-5 with three RBIs. Hannah Beth Matherly had three hits, Tayte Sampson drove in two runs and Mykah Smith and Kaylee Roskam each had two hits.
    Plainview outhit Sulphur 18-9.
    "We've really been doing a lot of things differently in the cage and I really think that's starting to pay off," Foster said. "They're putting the ball in play really well right now."
    Sulphur scored twice in the top of the seventh on an error and an Allie Saunders RBI single to take a 7-6 lead. Saunders had three hits and Harlee Griffis was 2-for-3 with three runs scored for the Bulldogs (13-2).
    After starting the season 1-4 with two tough tournaments, the Indians have won seven straight.
    "Every year we always go out to the Hall of Fame Showcase and the Chisholm Trail," Foster said. "Dale was No. 1, Bethel was No. 5, Cache was No. 7. Our girls are playing really good teams and that's what makes them better in the long run."
