GRAFORD — No. 6 Lewisville The Colony capitalized on its scoring chances Thursday and Wylie couldn’t. In the end, that was the difference in a 7-1 victory for the Lady Cougars in Game 1 of a best-of-three Region I-5A semifinal softball series.
The Colony (37-3) scored all seven of its runs with two outs, including four unearned runs in the second inning, while Wylie came up empty on a bases-loaded, no-outs situation with a chance to get back into the game in the fifth.
That proved to be the Lady Bulldogs’ best opportunity the rest of the way as The Colony pitcher Karly Charles roped a two-run home run in the bottom of that same inning to push a five-run lead to seven runs and effectively put the game away.
