GAME STORY: Big innings, Silva’s gem spark Abilene High to 11-3 win at Wylie

Behind an outstanding pitching performance by junior Diana Silva and an aggressive effort at the plate and on the basepaths, the Abilene High softball team picked up a big District 4-5A win over Wylie on Friday at Bulldog Field.

Fueled by an 11-hit performance off WHS’ pitching tandem of Reese Farrar and Rylee Moore, the Lady Eagles scored two runs in the first and three in the third before breaking the game open with a six-run fifth to pull away for an 11-3 victory and into a second-place tie with the Lady Bulldogs at 5-2 in the 4-5A standings.

That run support proved far more than needed for Silva, who held Wylie to just six hits and two earned runs in a complete-game effort to even the season series against the Lady Bulldogs at 1-1.
