By Chuck Reherman, Sports Editor – Yukon wanted to make a statement on how they felt about Michelle Wagner and Aimee Lewis, the two people the Millerettes were playing their Pink Out game for.

The Millerettes made that statement scoring the equivalent of three touchdowns in rolling to a 21-0 rout of Norman North, Friday at the Millerette Softball Complex.

The win came on the heels of a 4-2 win over Westmoore on Thursday in a game that the Millerettes held off a late Lady Jaguar rally in the bottom of the seventh inning.

YHS remained unbeaten with their second run-rule win over Norman North at 16-0-1 and 10-0 in Distrtict 6A-2. The Millerettes are 10-0 in district play, two games ahead of Moore for the district title.

Yukon travels to Moore on Tuesday and hosts Westmoore on Thursday in their two biggest district games remaining. A win on Tuesday would all but seal the district title.
The Millerettes got off to a fast start, but it was an eight-run second inning that YHS control of the game, 10-0.

YHS started their first inning rally with two out on a Chyenne Factor single. Breley Webb doubled to drive in the first run of the game. Bre Johnson singled to drive in the second run of the inning.

Webb, who teamed with Johnson to throw the five-inning no-hitter, had the key hit of the second inning, a bases clearing double that gave the Millerettes an 8-0 lead.

YHS loaded the bases on an Anna Icenhower single and errors on ground balls hit by Jayden Flowers and Aleyah Holman. Rylee Uhr reached on an error, Hannah Hurtz singles and Factor walked to send in three ruins and a 5-0 lead.

Webb doubled over the left fielder’s head to drive in three runs. Ashlynn Bruce and Flowers both singled in runs to open the 10-0 lead.

Leading 11-0, the Millerettes turned the game into a rout, scoring 10 runs in the fourth to open a 21-0 lead.

Johnson and Gigi Vandelune both had two-run scoring doubles in the inning. Hurtz singled home a run, after the bases were loaded with the first three batters reaching on a walk and two errors. A walk to Megan Johnson and a error on a ground ball by Webb opened a 14-0 lead. Johnson doubled home two for a 16-0 lead and Vandelune doubled in two more to open an 18-0 lead.

Icenhower, Uhr and Hurtz singled to drive in the final three runs of the game.

The Millerettes had 18 hits in the game. Johnson was 3-for-4 with three ruins batted in, Hurtz was 3-for-5 with three RBIs, Webb 2-for-4 with five RBIs and Icenhower was 3-for-4 with one RBI.

On Thursday night, the Millerettes scored early and then held off a late Westmoore comeback bid to beat the Lady Jaguars, 4-2.

YHS led 4-1 in the bottom of the seventh but a single by Kailey Gamble and a walk to Claira Skaggs gave the Lady Jags a breath of life. A fielder’s choice forced the runner out at third and a pop-up was the second out of the inning. McKayla Franks, though, singled to drive in a run and a walk to Janene Marwitz loaded the bases.

With the tying run on second, Webb for Eryeka Pierce to ground out to Factor at shortstop, who flipped it to Holman at second for the final out.

It looked like the Millerettes were going to take control of the game early. Factor doubled home Uhr (who had singled) for the first run of the game.

Home runs from Ashlyn Bruce and Holman in the second inning opened a 3-0 Millerette lead.

YHS led 4-0 before Westmoore got on the board in the bottom of the sixth inning.
