Honeybees score early but Godley rallies for 8-7 win

A wild pitch led to a pair of sixth-inning runs for the Godley Lady Wildcats and Friday the 13th turned out to be bad luck for the Stephenville Honeybees in an 8-7 district home loss.

The night began with tears (Senior Night) and ended much the same way as Stephenville jumped out to an early 4-0 lead in the bottom of the second inning.

A single by Julia Flores got things rolling, and her base running skills on a pair of passed balls rounded her to third base. The Honeybees would then load the bases with a “good-eye” walks from Samantha Luna and Bianka Garcia.

Jessica Ebeling pounded a ground ball and reached first via an error which opened up home plate for Flores and Luna who scored sliding runs for a 2-0 lead. A Jettie Funderburgh groundout scored Garcia to make it 3-0 Stephenville and Ebeling made it 4-0 following Skye Gaitan’s RBI single.

Godley rallied to go on top 5-4 in the top of the third inning, and Stephenville used their half of the stanza to knot the score. Luna used her speed after a single to score and make it 5-5 when Funderburgh added another single.

The Honeybees went back on top in the fourth inning with Kristen Pettit earning a walk, and a Mallory Gilder single was followed by a wild throw that led to Pettit scoring. A Flores’ grounder and a throw to first gave Gilder the opportunity to make it a 6-5 game.

Godley again rallied in the sixth inning scoring their two runs when a pitch went wild, and Godley seized the 8-7 lead.

Morgan DiCiccio got on board for Stephenville in the bottom of the seventh inning following a pair of pop-fly outs, and the Honeybees ran out of chances.
