Lady Farmers earn playoff win and district title

by | May 6, 2021 | Sports

With the playoffs around the corner and a district title on the line in the regular season finale, the Farmersville softball team had a lot to fight for last week.

Farmersville opened the week in a district title showdown, fac­ing off against Terrell in a re­scheduled season finale April 27. With the winner earning the first spot in the district stand­ings, the Lady Farmers used a strong pitching performance to their advantage en route to a 5-3 victory over the Lady Tigers.

After the victory, coach Paula Wilfong said she appreciated be­ing able to earn the district win in front of the Farmersville com­munity, especially considering the challenges of this season.

The Lady Farmers got things moving in the first inning, “It feels good,” Wilfong said. “With the rain and all the re­scheduling, getting to earn this win in front of the home crowd and community members means the world to us. Our seniors had a great showing today. I’m so proud of Reese [Fetty] on the mound, earning a ton of strikeouts.”

cor­ing two runs off of a Morgan Erwin double on a 0-2 count and a Jenson McTee single. Af­ter allowing a run in the top of the third, Farmersville extended its lead to 4-1, scoring runs off of singles by Rylee Ortega and Cecily Sandoval. Two innings later, a home run by Reese Fetty allowed the Lady Farmers to ice the game, earning the two-run win.

Fetty was the starting pitcher for the Lady Farmers. In six innings in the circle, Fetty al­lowed three runs on four hits while striking out 11 Terrell bat­ters. Jamie Varga threw an in­ning in relief out of the bullpen for Fetty. Courtney Harrell took the loss for Terrell, allowing 13 hits and five runs in six innings.
