CLEARFIELD -- The Tigers drew first blood on Monday, but the Falcon in the circle didn't let her feathers get ruffled.
Clearfield High pitcher Bailey Douglas gave up two quick runs against Ogden, but settled it down the stretch, giving up just one more run in four innings to pace the Falcons to a 16-3 thrashing of Ogden in five innings in non-league softball action.
The freshman piled up five strikeouts and walked just one batter through 3 2âÑ3 innings before giving up a solo homer to Tigers shortstop Adalena Duran after the victory was already in hand.
"We had a few girls in new defensive assignments, so that was a little bit of an adjustment for her (Douglas) in the early going," said Clearfield coach Nicole Tindall. "But she did a great job of only giving up the two early, because it could have gotten out of hand. She usually gets stronger as she goes."
Douglas also received significant help at the plate as the Falcons (8-8 overall) notched 10 hits and took advantage of five Ogden errors.
Clearfield responded to the Tigers' early lead in the bottom of the first with five runs, before pouring it on with a 10-run rally in the bottom of the third inning. The Falcons got RBIs from seven different batters, including three each from Kassidy Young and Shareve Sanford.
Clearfield also drew nine walks in the one-sided victory.
"I was pleased with our discipline at the plate, especially after our rough practice on Friday," Tindall said. "I always tell the girls a walk is just as good as a hit in this game, and it certainly allowed us to score runs today."
The Tigers (7-6) loaded the bases in the top of the fifth inning, but couldn't come up with a run as Falcons closer Kaycee Ray slammed the door shut.
