However, the three hitters before her - Shakira Smith, Avery Lowe and Angelina Bruner – were also instrumental with a combined nine hits and two RBIs.

But Ardmore also had another hitter step up, as Jacy Johnson went 4-for-5 with a double and three RBIs. She also struck out five in a complete-game effort in the circle.

El Reno jumped out to an early 4-1 advantage after two innings, but Ardmore answered back with a five-run third inning to take the lead.

The two teams were scoreless in the fourth before combining for a whopping 19 runs in the final three frames. The Lady Tigers plated seven runs in the sixth and it proved to be the difference-maker as El Reno scored five in their half of the frame.
