“We’re going to state!”
After a professional attitude won the first day of regionals for Marlow softball, Abbey Warren just couldn’t contain her excitement putting that accomplishment on blast.
Well, not quite yet. The Outlaws still need to win one more game against the winner of the loser’s bracket. But if Marlow plays like it did Thursday, that shouldn’t be a problem.
It dominated both Marietta and Lindsay by a combined score of 22-1. Most of the credit for that performance should go to pitcher Gigi Wall, who struck out seven in the game against Lindsay and ended it with a walk off home run.
“She’s awesome,” catcher Kaytlyn Kizarr said after the game. “She’s hitting her spots and she wants it.”
Kizarr added two hits herself to go along with an underrated performance behind the plate. While she was the shining beacon of confidence, her counterpart was the opposite. The Lindsay catcher had difficulty fielding a lot of the pitches and the Outlaws took advantage of it when they could. The team finished with four runs scored on passed balls.
“She got wild,” coach Kevin Miller said. “Instead of chasing her stuff, we looked for our pitch and that was the big key.”
That mindset put Lindsay in a hole and that just loosened up the bats for Warren and company. Now their minds will be focused on Friday when they get a chance to lock down the state playoff berth they have been dreaming about all season.
“Just one game, that’s all we have left, just one game,” Warren said.
