The Northwest Lady Texans beat Little Elm 6-5 in dramatic comeback fashion last week.

After giving up three runs in the opening inning, the Lady Texans scored a run in the first and fourth innings to make it a one-run game.

But Little Elm wouldn’t go away quietly as they added two more in the top of the fifth to increase their lead back to three.

Northwest came screaming back in the bottom of the same inning. Sydenee Hinkle drove in a run on a single. That was followed by three RBI doubles from Tarah Hilton, Rhianna Speicher and Kelsey Rhine that gave Northwest the lead.

The win was the second consecutive come-from-behind victory for Northwest, who had a similar finish against Denton Ryan earlier last week.

Northwest coach Tanya Morrow liked the mentality her team displayed in the hard-fought battle.

“Even with two outs they never gave up,” Morrow said. “Hilton is our sophomore right fielder who came up with two outs in both games and got hits. I was real proud of her at-bats in those games.

Morrow also appreciated how vocal her team was in the game, saying that it was the most her players talked and communicated thus far in the season.

Tuesday DerMargosian hit two doubles in her two at-bats to accompany the two runs she scored.

DerMargosian also reached base on a walk.

Hinkle finished the game with two RBIs off of her two hits, while Speicher had four total bases and two doubles herself.

DerMargosian had three quality at-bats while Speicher, Hilton, Hinkle, McKenzie Middlebrook and Brie Wrobel each had two.

Emily Worley took the mound for the Lady Texans, throwing 61 strikes in 88 pitches that included 16 first-pitch strikes thrown to 25 batters.

Worley struck out five and walked two while allowing 10 hits in the win.
