DAVIS — Sometimes in softball, strange scenarios can take place between teams.

DAVIS — Sometimes in softball, strange scenarios can take place between teams.

This was the case for the Davis Lady Wolves on Monday against Lexington.

Lexington entered the game with the inside track on the district title, while the Lady Wolves were already assured of third place and a spot in the regional tournament next week.

However, victory by Davis would mean their rival Sulphur would be crowned as the district champion.

Unfortunately, that scenario didn’t happen.

Despite battling back with a four run inning, the Lady Wolves were once again overwhelmed by Lexington, as the Lady Bulldogs moved within one win of clinching the District 3A-3 title with a 15-4 victory in six innings at Lady Wolf Field.

Lexington moved to 14-5 overall and 10-1 in district play, while Davis dropped to 19-9 overall and 8-4 in district play.

Sulphur will more than likely now end up as the No. 2 seed out of District 3A-3, as Lexington’s last district game is against Community Christian on Thursday, a team they defeated 13-3 earlier this year.

Lexington opened the game with two runs in the first inning, before scoring three more in the second.

After a scoreless third inning, the Lady Bulldogs tacked on one more in the fourth followed by two in the fifth for an 8-0 lead.

Davis would have a response in the bottom of the fifth.

Madi Merrell got Davis on the board with a fielder’s choice RBI, before Paige Miller made it 8-2 with a fielder’s choice RBI off a bunt. 

Alexis Barnes then got in on the action with an RBI single to left, before Lynsey Martin cut the deficit to 8-4 with an RBI ground ball which scored Miller.

But the worst was yet to come for the Lady Wolves.

A seven-run sixth inning eventually sealed the game for Lexington, as the Lady Bulldogs got five RBI doubles in the inning to pile on the score. 

Kobee Jones took the loss for Davis on the mound, throwing five innings. She allowed six earned runs on eight hits with three walks and two strikeouts. 

Davis is back in action next Monday at the Norman North Festival.
