The home-standing Victoria East Lady Titans took advantage of some timely hitting and a few Beeville errors to capture a 12-2 varsity softball win over the Lady Trojans on Friday.

“Offensively we hit the ball well and got on base, just needed some timely hits to help us out even more. We left six runners on base,” said Lady Trojan head coach Edward Bocanegra.

The Beeville girls scored one run in the top of the first as Taylor Lawson scored on a double by Theresa Amador. But the Titans lit up the scoreboard with four runs in the home half of the first to take an early 4-1 lead.

A single run in the bottom of the second put the Titans up 5-1 before the Lady Trojans could answer. Taylor Lawson scored again in the top of the third for the Lady Trojans. With the bases loaded and J.J. Hernandez at the plate, Lawson was at third when Hernandez earned a walk to get the RBI and make it a 5-2 contest.

That would be all the scoring for the Lady Trojans, but not for the Titans. Two more runs came across for the home team in the third inning and four more were pushed across home plate in the fourth. It was 11-2 heading into the fifth.

The Lady Trojans failed to score in the top of the inning and the Titans needed just one run to end the tilt under the ten-run rule.

Victoria East got the one run they needed and the contest ended with the Lady Trojans on the wrong end of a 12-2 score.

“Theresa Amador pitched a good game, but our defense just had too many errors,” Bocanegra said.

“We are keeping the girls positive and letting them know that they can win, and that they need to work hard in practice.”

The Lady Trojans played host to Floresville on Tuesday night but will be back on the road on Friday night in Port Lavaca to challenge the Sandies.
