The Calallen Lady Cats notched a 5-1 victory Friday morning over The Colony to charge into the state championship game.
The Lady Cats snapped The Colony’s 27-game winning streak en route to the biggest victory in the school’s softball history.
Lizette Del Angel limited the Cougars to one hit and struck out 10 to key the victory. Calallen also took advantage of uncharacteristic sloppiness by The Colony, who committed a season-worst four errors in the loss. Their one hit was the fewest in a single game for them this season.
Calallen escaped from a dangerous situation with two runners on and no out in the sixth inning as Del Angel pitched out of a jam.
And Kat Flores iced the victory with a clutch two-run triple in the seventh inning that gave them some breathing room as the game finished up.
They will meet Angleton, which beat Forney in 11 innings in Friday’s second game. The championship game will be at 3 p.m. Saturday.
We’ll have much more on this game throughout the day on KRIS 6 Sports.
