Kolton Hunt (40) and Mikey Devereaux (34) chase down a Duncan ball carrier during Thursday night’s District 5A-1 game at Memorial Stadium. The Indians moved to 6-1 on the season and 3-1 in league action with a 42-19 win over the Demons.
SHAWNEE – While it was not the error-free game El Reno head coach Davee Deaton knew it would take to beat top-seeded Carl Albert, the Indians still took the Titans to seven complete innings Thursday in the quarterfinals of the Class 5A State Fast-Pitch Softball Championships.
El Reno, the No.8 seed, outscored Carl Albert 4-2 over the final three innings but could not overcome a slow start – both at the plate and on the field.
The Titans scored eight runs in the first four frames en route to a 10-4 win over El Reno.
While it took a pair of nail-biting victories, El Reno High School's softball team is headed back to the Class 5A State Softball Championships for the second time in four seasons.
Playing the first-ever postseason games on its new field at Adams Park North, El Reno rallied from a 10-3 deficit to defeat Noble 21-11 in five innings to win the 2019 Class 5A, Region 2 Championships.
