Prairie View advances in state softball tourney with a 10-1 win
MANHATTAN – Prairie View pitching ace Emma Chambers threw a no-hitter on Thursday, May 26, as the Lady Buffalos beat Scott in the opening round in the state 3A softball tournament 10-1 in Manhattan.
The Lady Buffalos got all of the runs they would need in the first inning. Julia Paisley hit a double on a grounder to left field, followed by a line-drive double by Rylee Boone. With two runners on base, Rian Stainbrook grounded out, bringing Paisley in to score and advancing Boone to third. Braxton Stainbrook singles on a line drive to centerfield, bringing Boone in to score.
Scott got on the scoreboard in the fourth inning after a Scott batter Malorie Crupp took first on four balls and would eventually score on a error. That was the last run of the game for Scott.
Prairie View scored six runs in the fifth inning and two more in the sixth to win the game.
The Lady Buffalos tapped Scott pitchers for 10 hits. Addison Bloodgood, Charlee Boone, Rylee Boone, Julia Paisley and Braxton Stainbrook all hit doubles. And Chambers and Kaylene Gregg also picked up a hit.
And while the girls had four RBIs total, the base-runners were aggressive. Charlee Boone stole three bases, Bloodgood stole two, and Rylee Boone, Gregg, and Rian Stainbrook stole one each.
The Buffalos (20-4) will face Rossville (21-3) on Friday in a semi-final game at 11 a.m.
