WOODS CROSS -- They did not have an extra-base hit and were hitless until the fourth inning.

Relying on their short game Wednesday, the Falcons scored seven unanswered runs spanning the sixth and seventh innings and whipped Woods Cross 8-1 in a Region 6 game.

"We didn't have a hit until the fourth inning, so we had to try something different," said Clearfield coach Nicole Tindall. "We really executed well and did the fundamental things.

"We laid down bunts, which were big for us because we have struggled with that. We went 'short ball' today and it worked. We'll take it."

Sophomore right-hander Bailey Douglas tossed a four-hitter with three strikeouts and no walks.

"Bailey pitched a really good game. This was her best outing of the year," Tindall said. "She took control on the mound and hit her spots really well."

Douglas went 2-for-4 and scored two runs. Karley Williams and Jayden Glade each had a two-run single; Kassidy Young had an RBI single and a run-scoring suicide squeeze; and Kaycee Ray had an RBI fielder's choice for the Falcons (8-8 overall, 7-3 league).

Clearfield capitalized on eight base on balls by Wildcats sophomore right-hander Hanalee Robinson, with three of the walks scoring.

Robinson walked three straight in the sixth inning -- the Falcons were leading 2-1 -- and Williams hit a two-run single.

"We are fighting with East for the No. 2 seed and home-field advantage in the state 4-A playoffs," Tindall said.

The Leopards and Clearfield split their two previous games, with their regular-season finale Tuesday at Salt Lake City.
