Forney ends Royse City’s softball season with 2-1 playoff win

FORNEY — With one runner on in the bottom of the eighth inning, Rylie Chappell lashed a two-out single into left field scoring Krista Williams, to lead Forney over Royse City, 2-1, last night, completing a two-game sweep of their best-of-3 Class 4A Region II quarterfinal series.

Forney (32-7) also edged Royse City (24-10) Thursday night, 3-2.

Williams went 4-4 in the game, including a high pop-up in front of home plate in the eighth which somehow was missed by the Lady Dawgs infielders.

After a tough first inning, Forney starter Macie Tillery pitched a complete game against the state’s 10th-ranked 4A team, striking out eight.

Kansas University recruit Alicia Pille also had eight strikeouts in eight innings.
