ALEXANDRIA, La. — Paige Bryan threw a one-hitter and four hitters combined for all of Monterey’s nine hits as the Lady Wolves annihilated the Rapides Lady Mustangs 15-0 in three innings Tuesday afternoon in District 6-B action.

Bryan, Taylor Morace, Ariel Hector and Logan Dale were the only players for Monterey who had a hit in the game. Actually, all four had at least two hits in the game with five of those nine hits going for extra bases.

Morace was literally unstoppable as she went 3-for-3 with two doubles and a triple. Bryan helped her own cause by going 2-for-3 with a triple of her own. Hector was 2-for-3 with a double and Dale also went 2-for-3.

Monterey (12-13, 4-5) scored six runs in the top of the first inning, three in the top of the second and six runs in the top of the third inning. Rapides helped out a lot by committing nine errors in the lopsided game.
