There’s no better gift a team can give its first year coach than a championship.

There’s no better gift a team can give its first year coach than a championship.

Tuesday afternoon, the No. 20 Davis Lady Wolves gave their head coach Tyler Lampkin a special present to celebrate a successful first season in charge.

Despite some stubborn opposition put up by Holdenville, the Lady Wolves were able to sweep their way to another district championship, and a berth in the regional tournament.

DHS will now await where its regional tournament destination will be when the OSSAA releases the Class 3A brackets next week.

 

Davis 9
Holdenville 5

In the opening game of the best 2-out of-3 series, the Lady Wolves tried to strike early and often against HHS.

Sydney Martin got Davis on the board in the bottom of the second with an RBI single.

Holdenville though struck back in the top of the third, tying the game at 1-1.

For a brief moment, HHS was in the lead as it grabbed a run in the top of the fourth to lead 2-1.

The deficit was short lived though, as Sydney Martin struck again, this time with a clutch two-RBI triple with two outs, putting Davis back in the lead at 3-2.

Lauren Son gave the Lady Wolves some breathing room with an RBI groundout in the fifth which scored Alexis Ball to make it 4-2.

But, Holdenville didn’t go away quietly as a run was scored off a bases loaded walk in the top of the sixth inning, cutting the advantage to 4-3.

Once again though, the Lady Wolves were waiting with a response when they came to the plate in the bottom half of the inning.

First it was Brinlee Dulaney slapping an RBI double to left, before Lynsey Martin cleared the bases with a three-RBI triple to make it 8-3.

Son registered an RBI groundout scoring Martin to make it 9-3.

HHS tried to rally with two runs in the top of the seventh inning, but it wasn’t enough.

Son got the win on the mound for the Lady Wolves, throwing a complete game. She allowed five earned runs on five hits with seven walks and five strikeouts.

Game two was another tightly contested contest, as the Lady Wolverines tried to fight for their playoff lives, while the Lady Wolves were thinking about a championship.

It was Davis striking first in the top of the second, as Lauren Son scored on a passed ball, before Sydni Merrell scored on an error to make it an early 2-0 advantage.

Holdenville would tie the game in the bottom half of the inning at 2-2.

But, in the top of the third it was the Lady Wolves back in front.

Son hit an RBI single to left to make it a 3-2 lead, before Jolee Grinstead slapped an RBI triple to score Son, before later scoring herself on the same play to make it 5-2.

A run in the bottom of the third by the Lady Wolverines made it 5-3.

Sydni Merrell struck again in the fifth as she hit an RBI double to right, putting DHS in front 6-3.

Things appeared to be well in hand when Lynsey Martin registered an RBI off a sacrifice fly in the sixth to make it a 7-3 contest.

However, the Lady Wolverines had other ideas as they flipped the script and scored four runs in the bottom half of the inning to tie the game at 7-7.

After a scoreless seventh, the game would have to be decided in extra innings.

Lynsey Martin provided the spark for Davis, as she hit a three-RBI triple to center, before Son put the icing on a solid inning with an RBI groundout.

Son picked up the win on the mound for Davis, throwing 3 1/3 innings.
