For the second consecutive weekend, Turner won a tournament.

The Lady Falcons beat Stonewall 2-0 Saturday to win the Tupelo Tournament.

Turner senior pitcher Jacey Henry struck out eight as Turner continued its perfect start to the 2016 season (9-0).

The home team on the scoreboard, the Lady Falcons again scored both of their runs in the sixth — via their only extra-base hit, a double by Tracy McGill. Rylee Carter and Henry scored.

Carter had two of Turner’s five hits; Jaleigh Durst and Henry had one apiece.

Henry, who allowed four hits and issued one walk, struck out Stonewall’s final two hitters to seal the win.

Turner 2, Stonewall 1

Scoreless through five innings, Chloe Tynes began the sixth on second base.

Two hitters later, Henry drove her in with a single.

Stonewall recorded the second out.

McGill singled. Henry advanced to home plate on the throw; McGill was not credited with an RBI.

In the home half, Stonewall also had a runner placed at second base to begin the frame. She scored on a sacrifice.

Henry notched her ninth strikeout — then induced a groundout to Carter, the shortstop.


Turner 7, Coleman 4

Each team scored one run in the first frame Friday.

Turner scored six in the ninth. The Lady Falcons’ Hillary Hill — coach Shane Hill’s daughter — hit a two-run single to break the tie.

After Kaylee Colston reached on an error, Tynes hit an RBI groundout. Carter then singled. Henry drove in what proved to be the decisive run with a double that plated Colston.

Durst hit a two-run single that drove in Carter and Henry. Coleman threw the Turner sophomore out at second base.

Henry — who threw nine innings without allowing a walk — struck out two Coleman hitters to end the game. She finished with nine strikeouts.

Coleman scored two earned runs and collected six hits — including three to lead off the ninth inning, when the Lady Wildcats scored three runs in the home half to cut its deficit in half.

Durst had a team-high two RBIs. Carter and Brianna Paul paced Turner with two hits; Paul and Henry each had one double.
