Lady Hawks lose to Frisco Wakeland, 4-0, softball season ends


PLANO-Rockwall-Heath committed four costly errors and left eight runners on base, including five in scoring position, as the Lady Hawks lost their Class 4A Region II quarterfinal playoff game to Frisco Wakeland  Tuesday, 4-0.

The loss ends the highly successful season for the Lady Hawks.  With the victory, Wakeland (29-5) advances to play Forney in the regional semifinals.

Heath pitcher Chelsea Eddy gave up only three hits, but Wakeland took full advantage of them and the Lady Hawks’ four errors.

Frisco scored in the top of the second inning, when they loaded the bases on two singles and a walk. The run came on a ground out.

They scored their second run without a hit in the fourth inning when Derian Dunn led off with a walk, moved to second on a ground out and came around to score when a bunt back to the mound was dropped on the throw to first base.

Heath’s best chances to score came in the fourth and fifth innings.

In the fourth, consecutive one-out singles by Sarah Deimling and Kaeleigh Lutz put runners on first and second with one out, but Cantu struck out the next two to end the inning. Heath got runners on second and third with one out in the fifth, but again Cantu struck out the next two hitters to end the threat.
