    Ardmore falls short in doubleheader
    Chickasha swept Ardmore on Tuesday, 8-0 in the opening contest and 16-3 in game two.
    The Tigers fell to 0-2 on the road, and 0-2 in district play.
    In Game 1, Chickasha pitcher Kelsi Gore struck out 10 Lady Tigers hitters, and surrendered a pair of hits.
    Lexi Duff had seven strikeouts in her first district game, giving up two earned runs.
    “We made several errors,” Ardmore coach Charli Crawford said.
    “I thought Lexi did a good job. She held people off and struck out some good hitters.”
    Crawford said her team did some good things. Offensively, Ardmore hit the ball hard, but often right at Chickasha fielders.
    In the nightcap, Ardmore (3-6) scored first on catcher Madison Moore’s RBI single.
    Brittany Harrison also drove home a run in the inning.
    Chickasha responded emphatically, scoring six runs in the bottom of the first frame.
    Ardmore added another run three innings later, with Kenysha Noland picking up an RBI, but the hosts answered with another half-dozen runs in the home half of the inning.
    “Chickasha is a good team,” Crawford said. They don’t make mistakes.
    “Our girls played a little timid.”
    Katelyn Cronemeyer pitched for the Lady Tigers.
    The Tigers host Noble on Thursday. The first game starts at 5 p.m.
    “I told ‘em that Thursday’s is a new day, and we’ve got to get two wins.”
     
    Dickson 4, Sulphur 3
    The visiting Comets scored a pair of runs in the fifth inning, completing a rally that resulted in a 4-3 win at Sulphur on Tuesday.
    Page 2 of 2 - London Bell, Nikki Faulkner and Kelsie Bidwell each had RBIs for the Lady Comets, who improved their record to 2-4.
    The host Lady Bulldogs, meanwhile, dropped to 2-4.
    Sulphur scored first, plating a run in the initial inning.
    An inning later, the two Lake Country Conference foes traded a pair of two-run frames.
    Madison Rozzell pitched three innings with six strikeouts.
    Rozzell’s two hits also paced all batters. She also drew a walk.
    Dickson will play at 11 a.m. on Saturday, against Chelsea as part of the Hall of Fame Shootout, while Sulphur resumes play on Aug. 25 when it hosts Lone Grove.
     
    Ringling 10, Wilson 0
    The Ringling Blue Devils run-ruled Wilson in a shutout on Tuesday.
    Angel Stoker started in the circle for Ringling with eight strikeouts and allowed one hit with Chandler Smith catching. 
    Ringling scored once in the first, added five runs in the second, another run in the third and three more in the fourth. 
    With just four hits, Ringling took advantage of five walks and several batters hit by pitch to take the win to improve to 6-1. 
    C-Leigh Butler was 2-for-2 with a pair of doubles and Cassidy Perkins added a double. 
    Ringling travels to Lone Grove Thursday and will face Davis and Kingston at the Healdton festival on Friday.
     
    Turner 3, Calera 0
    A timely two-run triple by Shyanne Parker gave pitcher Jacey Henry a pair of insurance runs, and the sophomore finished her shutout of Calera.
    Turner defeated the Bulldogs 3-0 on Tuesday night in Burneyville.
    The Lady Falcons improved to 5-2, and defeated Calera for the second time in four days.
    “They’re a good team,” Hill said of Calera. “You’ve got to do things right to beat ‘em. We got a couple of timely hits. (The) bottom of our order kind of sparked us tonight.
    “It was a good win.”
    Turner took a 1-0 lead in the fifth frame.
    The Lady Falcons got one hit apiece from Keirsten McCraw, Tracy McGill, Rilee Carter and Em Hawthorne.
    Henry pitched six innings in the circle — striking out eight — to earn the win.
    Turner’s next contest is scheduled for Friday, as part of the Tishomingo Tournament.
