The second half of district softball season kicked off last night for the New Boston Lady Lions and other teams around the area, with a huge contest between the Lady Lions and the Redwater Lady Dragons.

The Lady Dragons took a 2-0 lead into the 5th inning before New Boston’s Haley McAlexander became the night’s star of the highlight reel with an inside the park grand slam that boosted the Lady Lions to the 4-2 district win.

Morgan McAlexander earned the win on the hill for New Boston, going the distance and allowing two runs on just four hits and striking out eight. Redwater hurler Bethanee Calicott took a rare loss allowing four runs on five hits. Walks were a killer for Calicott and the Lady Dragons with five walks and a pair of hit batsmen.

Carlee Ratcliff led New Boston with a pair of hits in the game. Haley McAlexander, McKenzee Thomas and Grace Duffer each had one. For Redwater, Jordan Walraven had a hit and an RBI as did Ashton Holland. Riley Elliott also had a hit for the Lady Dragons.

New Boston is scheduled to host Queen City on Friday.

On Monday, Hughes Springs blanked the DeKalb Lady Bears 24-0 in four innings. The Lady Mustangs outhit DeKalb 18-1, including six homeruns. Kadyn Clark had the lone hit for the Lady Bears.
