Alvarado plated a run in the top of the eighth inning to outlast the Bridgeport Sissies 2-1 in game one of their Class 4A Region I series Thursday.

CheyAnne Weirich drove in Bridgeport’s lone run in the Sissies’ loss to Alvarado on a sacrifice that scored Hailey Hollingsworth in the bottom of the fourth.

The loss is the Sissies’ third in a row after dropping games to Castleberry and Decatur.

Hollingsworth’s run tied the game after an Alvarado score earlier in the inning jumped the Lady Indians into the lead.

Hollingsworth stole second base and then advanced to third on a passed ball. With Weirich’s sacrifice, she darted home.

The Sissies faced Alvarado again Friday night in the hunt for a bi-district title, with a possible third game scheduled for Saturday at Keller Fossil Ridge.

S&S 12, BOYD O

The District 9-3A champion Boyd Lady Yellowjackets had a rough start to the playoffs Thursday night.

Boyd fell to 10-3A’s S&S Rams 12-0 in game one of their 3A Region II bi-district series. Game two is slated for 5 p.m. Saturday in Prosper.

S&S led 3-0 through five innings and broke the game open in the last two innings, going up 8-0 and eventually 12-0.

It was the first time this season in 26 games that Boyd had been shut out. The loss ended the Lady Yellowjackets’ nine-game winning streak. Boyd had scored double-digit runs in seven of those victories.
