CHICKASHA – The Drover softball team struggled to connect with the bat on Tuesday afternoon in its conference opener against No. 3 Oklahoma City.

The University of Science and Arts of Oklahoma (8-6) had solid pitching in both games but the Stars found a way to score enough runs to come out on top.

In the first game of the doubleheader, Tate Landmark (3-2) pitched a complete game, giving up four hits in seven innings. She struck out four batters.

Oklahoma City put in a run in each of the fifth and seventh innings to win it 2-0.

In the next game, the Drovers gave up four runs while only recording one themselves to drop 4-1.

The run came in the third inning when Brooke McLeod scored off a sacrifice fly by Skyler Nichols.

Jaci Booker (3-2) pitched a complete game, striking out five batters.

The Drovers continue conference action next week as they take on Southwestern Christian on Tuesday afternoon in a doubleheader set to begin at 1 p.m.
