Things have been rough for the Plainview Lady Indians so far this season.

Monday afternoon, they got a little rougher.

Despite staying within striking distance of Chickasha for the majority of the game, the Lady Indians weren’t able to sustain a lead as they suffered their fifth straight loss by a score of 15-5 in six innings at Chickasha.

The defeat dropped Plainview to 4-8 overall and 0-3 in district play.

Plainview’s district game against Byng was rained out on Monday, as the Lady Indians will be back in action Friday afternoon against Sulphur on the road.

Chickasha took the lead in the bottom of the second at 1-0, before Plainview tied the game in the top of the third.

Riley Grant got an RBI double to center which scored Lexi Hackney.

But, Chickasha came back with three runs in the bottom of the third to reclaim the lead at 4-1.

Turnabout proved to be fair play as the Lady Indians responded with their own three run inning in the top of the fourth to tie the game at 4-4.

Hackney made it 4-2 with an RBI single to left, before Taryn Martin tied the game when she slapped a double to center to score two runs.

Unfortunately, Chickasha remained several steps ahead the rest of the way.

Four runs in the fourth followed by four more in the fifth put the game out of reach.

Plainview attempted to rally in the sixth with one run courtesy of Kyra Treadwell getting an RBI double to center which scored Tatum Brewster, but Chickasha responded.

Three runs in the bottom of the sixth finished off the game.

Grant took the loss on the mound, throwing five innings. She allowed six earned runs on 13 hits with one walk and five strikeouts. 

Martin led the team with two RBI’s.
