Lady Cougars blitz Twin Rivers with pair of no-hitters

Thursday, March 20, 2008

One day after she fanned 18 batters in a 4-0 win over Shirley, Izard County's Sarah Taylor was at it again, leading the Lady Cougars to a sweep of Twin Rivers in doubleheader action in Brockwell.

Taylor tossed a no-hitter, striking out eight of the nine batters she faced in a 26-0 three-inning rout in game one of the twin bill.

In game two, a 15-0 Izard County win, Taylor fired another no-hitter and fanned all nine hitters she faced in three innings of work.

Taylor also had a double and two RBIs in game one, while Trace Grinnell added three runs-batted-in. Jenna Irgens went three-for-three, including a triple and four RBIs, with Lane Norvold logging three hits in the runaway victory.

In the nightcap, Taylor was two-for-two from the plate with four ribbies, while Grinnell added a pair of hits.

The Cougars got their diamond season off to a good start March 12 with a big 19-3 win over Melbourne.

Izard County scored five runs in the top of the first and never looked back.

Kyle McCandlis earned the win on the hill for Izard County, and at the plate, he rapped out four hits, including three doubles, while driving in four runs.

Dustin Noblin and Curtis Clark added three hits apiece, while Scott Small and Jeremy Burns notched two hits each. Noblin and Burns doubled in the game.

On the mound, McCandlis gave up four hits, walked four and fanned two. Small gave up one walk and struck out four, while Noblin retired the Katz in order in the fifth.

Adam Cooper recorded two hits for the Bearkatz.
