Buffalo’s softball team continues to play .500 ball, but lost two of three games last week.
On Tuesday, Sept. 25 the Lady Bison hosted an outstanding Weaubleau team and lost 4-1. Buffalo managed just four hits against the Weaubleau starter, Jenna Daggett. Makayla Short, Bella Young, Savannah Rice and Jada Watson had the hits.
Allie Maddux got the loss, hurling four and a third innings while giving up four runs on eight hits. Katelyn Gillispie came in relief and hurled two and two-thirds innings of runless and hitless ball.
On Saturday the Lady Bison played in the Ozarks Mountain Conference Tournament at El Dorado Springs and lost to Sherwood 6-1. The offensive drought continued as Emily Rice picked up Buffalo’s only hit and drove in the Lady Bison’s only run in the sixth inning.
Things worked out better in the second game as Buffalo rolled past El Dorado Springs 11-1, including a 10-run fourth. The Lady Bison cracked out eight hits by eight different players. Savannah Rice had a triple in the contest, and Madison Bennett and Kelsey Williams each had a double. Those getting singles were Emily Rice, Darby Armstrong, Bella Young, Short, and Maddux.
Gillispie hurled all five innings, allowing just one run on two hits.
The Lady Bison were scheduled to host Marshfield Monday and Clinton yesterday (Tuesday) before playing at home against Branson Thursday and participating in the Rolla Tournament Friday and Saturday.
