In fact, they remained undefeated for 11 games straight, losing for the first time this season against Suwannee on Friday, March 6 in the end of the year tournament. The Lady Broncos were tied or in the lead for the majority of the game, until the sixth inning when Suwannee's pitcher stepped it up a notch and several great throws from the outfield outed basemen. The Lady Bronco's previous three games proved just how talented their team is. On Tuesday, Feb. 24, the Broncos played Taylor County and won by a huge, 19-1, margin. Together, pitchers, Reese Rutherford, and Abi Annett, pitched a no-hitter, walking three and striking out nine. Rutherford walked three and struck out six while Annett allowed no earned runs, walked none and struck out three. Annett also played a memorable batting game, racking up four RBIs on three hits, homering in the first inning and singling in the first and second. The Lady Broncos gained an edge early on with an RBI single by Laila Dickey, a two-run home run by Annett, an error, an RBI single by Jocelyn Davis, an RBI single by Jashanti Davis, a two-run triple by Iesha Aikens, an RBI single by Annett, an RBI single by Kaylee Grover and an RBI single by Grace Galbraith during the first inning. The second inning was fueled by a two-run triple by Rutherford, an RBI single by Aikens, an RBI triple by Dickey, an RBI single by Annett, a fielder's choice and a two-run double by Davis. On Feb. 26, the Lady Broncos beat Lafayette County, 4-0, and Reese Rutherford threw another no-hitter, striking out 10 batters and walking four. Abi Annett gained two RBIs on three hits, doubling in the third inning and singling in the second and fifth. In their last regular season match-up, the girls played Suwannee County on March 3 and won 14-6. They scored in the sixth on a wild pitch and an RBI double by Cali Dyal. Reese Rutherford had four extra-base hits, homering in the fourth inning and doubling in the second, sixth and seventh. She allowed only three runs over five innings, striking out two, walking one and surrendering five hits. The game included several noteworthy plays. To name a few, in the second inning, four runs were scored on a two-run double by Rutherford and a groundout by Hope Underhill. In the third, the Lady Broncos scored on an RBI double by Kaylee Groover, scoring Laila Dickey. “We came out strong and hit the ball very well,” said Head Coach Matt Replogle. “Our defense was excellent, committing no errors.” Looking back on the season, Coach Replogle is ecstatic about the Lady Broncos' performance. “We had one of the best seasons ever at MCCS and I am proud of our entire team,” said Replogle. The Lady Broncos are definitely a force to be reckoned with. Congratulations, Lady Broncos, on a season well-played!
