About that time, some major gusts of wind blew into Kessler Field, flinging up large clouds of infield dust and playing heck with balls hit high in the air. But the sudden change of weather would not slow Mineral Wells.
The Lady Rams played small ball and added two more runs in the third, before posting a six-run fourth to close out the game.
It was an outstanding team performance by the Lady Rams on both sides of each inning. Eight out of nine Lady Ram batters registered at least one hit and every single player in the lineup got on base.
"(It was) awesome," said Allen, who split time at shortstop and catcher and went 3-for-4 with two doubles, four RBIs and three runs scored. "We all just came together and decided to play. Like Tarver says, we're a team and we don't know how, but we just win."
With 16 runs on the board at the end of the night, Tarver said it was hard to pick one performance that stood out most. He mentioned Allen, Huffman and the other hitters at the top of his lineup, all of whom came away with big games. However, he said the biggest key may have been the production that Singleton, Mendoza and Santibanez delivered out of the seven, eight and nine holes.
"If I was going to pick one thing, I'd say seven, eight and nine all getting on base in front of the top of the order and really sparking that big inning," he said. "That was the biggest boost to momentum we got tonight."
With their first district win under their belts, the Lady Rams will enjoy their own spring break until their next matchup on the road against Lake Worth on Tuesday.
