After a shutout victory over Lake Dallas

The Lady Hornets’ roller coaster 5-4A journey continued with an exceptional, air-tight 2-0 win followed by a crazy clash at home against Denton Guyer.

Azle (18-9, 3-4) skunked Lake Dallas 2-0 behind a stellar performance from hurler MaKenzi Harris.

The ace mowed down the Lady Falcons in the shutout, carding 14 strikeouts in her 101 pitch outing.

Azle scratched for a run in the third and another in the sixth to support Harris’ one-hitter.

AHS managed just five hits, all singles. One by Sarah Brown brought home a crucial RBI.

Other safeties were collected by Whitney Judd, Samantha Bradley, Katelyn Carpenter, and Rebekah Teel.

That win evened Azle’s district slate with one game to go to reach the halfway point in 5-4A.

Then, Denton Guyer arrived at the AHS diamond and fans enjoyed a chaotic contest March 29.

In what would be a game with 22 runs, 23 hits, and 16 errors, the contest could not have been any more different than the efficient Lake Dallas victory.

The Lady Wildcats put up three runs in their first at bat and two more in the top of the third.

But Azle answered with four runs in its half of the third and the game was tied at 5.

Things would get wackier.

When AHS grabbed the lead at 7-6 after four innings, fans were delighted.

Then the pendulum swung when Guyer scored four in the top of the sixth.

Behind 10-7, the craziness continued when Azle plated three more runners. Entering the seventh inning, the game was tied 10-10.

However, AHS could not answer Guyer’s two runs in the last frame and lost 12-10.

Summer Phillips spanked two doubles while Bradley had two hits and two RBI.

Bethani Phillips, Carpenter, and Brown also got ribbies.
