While Watford City’s bats remained hot this past week, the Wolves just couldn’t turn those hits into runs as they fell to Ray and Des Lacs-Burlington.
This week Watford City will travel to Stanley on Friday, before hosting Dickinson on Monday, May 2.
Ray 8, Watford City 7
Ray turned 10 hits into eight runs as the Jays defeated the Wolves, 8-7, last Thursday.
The Jays led Watford City, 3-1, after three innings of play before a single by Lakin Butler in the top of the fourth inning would send two runners across the plate to deadlock the game, 3-3.
The Wolves would take the lead in the top of the fifth when Mikka Haugeberg stole home and a RBI single by Maddy Hogue. But Ray would answer back scoring three runs to lead Watford City, 6-5.
Watford would again tie the game at 6-6, as Teddi Dwyer stole home in the top of the sixth inning. But Ray would answer back with two runs in the bottom of the inning to retake the lead.
Mikka Haugeberg took the loss on the mound for the Wolves.
Watford 0 0 1 2 2 1 1 7 5
Ray 1 0 2 0 3 2 x 8 10
DLB 14, Watford City 6
In spite of having 10 hits against Des Lacs-Burlington, Watford City just couldn’t turn those hits into runs as the Wolves suffered a 14-6 home loss.
Watford got on the scoreboard in the first inning when Mikka Haugeberg stole home, but Watford City’s joy turned into sorrow when the Lakers scored seven runs in the top of the third inning.
DLB continued to dominate the game as the Lakers scored three more runs in each of the fifth and seventh innings.
A RBI triple by Brea Jore, a RBI double by Kamryn Grimes, and a RBI single by Alli Mogen would fuel a four-run rally for Watford City in the bottom of the seventh.
DLB 0 0 7 1 3 0 3 14 12
Watford 1 0 0 1 0 0 4 6 10
