The Natchitoches Central softball team broke loose at the plate Saturday, sweeping two non-district games played in Beau Chene to raise the Lady Chiefs’ record to 16-3.

NCHS scored 31 runs against smaller-class opponents, pelting Church Point 15-5 and hacking away in a 16-3 rout of Hanson Memorial.

Mallory LaCour swung the big bat against Church Point (6-11), driving in four on two hits, including a home run in the third inning.

By then, NCHS was already up 7-0, plating five runs in the second inning. The onslaught was led by Desi Robinson, Terrell, and Robinson, who each had RBIs in the inning.

Maddie Robinson recorded 11 of the 15 outs via strikeout, although a very tight strike zone helped the losers snap her scoreless innings streak that had stretched over 50 innings.

Rapping 14 hits in five innings, Maddie Robinson, Desi Robinson, Ehren Guidroz, LaCour, and Robinson had two hits for NCHS, which was error-free defensively.

Against outmatched Hanson Memorial (2-7), Maddie Robinson drove in four on three hits, including a double in the fifth, and a home run in the sixth.

NCHS took control with four runs in the second inning.  Skylar Braxton tripled, scoring one run, and Desi Robinson added an RBI single sandwiched around a wild pitch and error that plated two more.

A five-run sixth inning featured home runs by Maddie Robinson and Terrell.

Terrell got the start in the circle and went six innings, allowing three runs on seven hits and striking out three.

Terrell, Braxton, Robinson, and Morgan Robinson each managed multiple hits for the Lady Chiefs. Maddie Robinson, Braxton, and Terrell each collected three hits.
