SIKESTON -- The Sikeston Lady Bulldogs continued their hot streak on Wednesday afternoon as they once again saw victory, defeating the visiting Saxony Lutheran Lady Crusaders 6-0. As districts are nearing, every win is meaningful in head coach Tiffany King's eyes.
"This was a big win being this close to districts," said King of the Lady Bulldogs' victory. "We hit the ball well up and down the line up."
Offensively for Sikeston, it was another solid day for Sarah Hopson, Sydney Davied and Krystal Henson. Hopson, finished up the day going 3-for-4 with three singles, Davied was 2-for-3 with a double and a triple and Henson led the way in the RBI department as she was 2-for-3 with a single, a triple and three RBIs.
Kelsie Cooper also had a triple and Kristen King added a double.
The Lady Bulldogs scored one in the first, four in the third and one in the fifth.
"We're putting the ball in play," King said. "And, I like the way that our defense really held up. We had a couple of errors and got put in a pressure situation but we got out of it."
Hopson also picked up the victory as she threw all seven innings, giving up four hits and one walk while striking out five.
Sikeston, now 12-8 on the season, will be on the road in Delta this afternoon to take on the Lady Bobcats.
