HAWLEY — The Coahoma Bulldogettes went 1-1 in their doubleheader scrimmage against the Hawley Lady Bearcats.
Saturday’s scrimmage marked the second time the Coahoma softball players tested their skills against another team this season, but it was the first game to include returning varsity members Cassie Grant, Caitlyn Corley, and Macee Green.
All three girls and freshman teammate Madison Rogers were finishing their last week of the basketball season when the Bulldogettes hosted the Andrews Lady Mustangs in a scrimmage Saturday, Feb. 2.
1st Scrimmage - Bulldogettes hold off late rally
The Bulldogettes stopped a sixth-inning rally by the Lady Bearcats to win the first game 9-4.
After pitching a no-run, five-inning game, Coahoma pitcher Kenleigh Janeway faced a bases loaded situation with no outs in the bottom of the sixth inning. Then a Hawley Bearcat hit a fly ball on a 2-2 pitch count to second baseman Kaylor Green who caught the ball for the out.
However, Hawley did get four runs before the last out, which was a grounder to third baseman Lexi Montelongo, but the comeback fell short thanks to the performance of the Coahoma offensive lineup that batted in nine runs during the six-and-half inning game.
Macee Grant led the Bulldogettes at the plate earning three RBIs from three hits at three at-bats. Montelongo earned the first RBI of the game after belting a double off a fly ball to left field to bring Madison Rogers across home plate. Montelongo went three for three at the plate and had three runs, one RBI and two triples. Rounding out the top batters was Cassie Grant who was three for two at bat with one RBI in the fourth.
The the Bulldogettes swift feet stole seven bases in the game. M. Grant and Caitlyn Corley had two each.
Janeway earned the win for Coahoma. She allowed six hits, four runs, five strikeouts, and one walked over six innings.

COAHOMA — The Coahoma boys varsity basketball team lost a heartbreaker Friday night to the Merkel Badgers 42-39.
The two District 5-3A rivals played a long, hard and physically aggressive game all four quarters.
For most of the game, the Badgers had the upper hand while the Bulldogs fought hard to stay within reach. By the third quarter, Coahoma was down by 7 points. Then Gage Clark-Burdell hit two field goals in a row and was fouled on the second. Converting the extra point, Clark-Burdell’s free throw brought the Bulldogs within two points to tie.
And Joe Manning did just that. Stepping up to the charity stripe and in front of a very noisy crowd, Manning nailed his two shots to knot the game 24-24. However, the Badgers went on another scoring spree to end the quarter up seven points, 34-27.
With a little more than 2 minutes left, the Bulldogs clawed their way to within 3 points of forcing the game into overtime when Clark-Burdell sank a ball in for two and Bryson Cline nailed his second three-pointer of the night. It was an all-out scramble for the keeping control of the ball from then on. Coahoma fouled a Merkel player with 9 seconds left in the game. As the Badger stepped up for his first 1 and 1 free throw, it looked as if Merkel had secured the game. He missed.
Clark-Burdell came up with the ball and headed down court lightening fast. With the game clock about to expire, he passed the ball to Cline who got off the three-point attempt as the buzzer sounded. The shot just barely missed.
Clark-Burdell had a game high of 18 points for the Bulldogs and Cline added 10 more.
Next: Coahoma heads to Clyde to take on the Bulldogs at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday.
