CANTON — After the first two innings of Tuesday night's game between Sequoyah and Creekview, there was little doubt which team would win the latest installment of the region and country rivalry.

The Lady Grizzlies jumped on Sequoyah with a five-run first inning before tacking on four more in the second for a commanding 9-1 lead.

Sequoyah, which scored in the top of the first, was able to add a run in both the third and fifth innings before Creekview ended the game with two runs in the fifth inning to put the mercy rule in effect during the 12-3 victory.

Creekview (1-0, 1-0 Region 7AAAAA) finished the game with 17 hits, which helped make up for the five errors the Lady Grizzlies committed in the field.

Amy Vetula got the offense going with a one-out bunt single in the bottom of the first. Casee Disharoon followed with a liner to left before Ashley Walraven loaded the bases with a sharply hit ball to shortstop.

Savanna Gruber was hit by a pitch to force in Vetula, and the bases remained loaded. Winfrey drove in Disharoon with a single to center before Kirsten Aanensen doubled to plate Walraven and Gruber. Before the inning was over, Ariel Rogers singled in Angela Winfrey.

The bottom of the second wasn't much different. Madison Dionne led off with a triple to right and Vetula drove her in with a single to center and Walraven singled to second to put runners on the corners.

Gruber then drove in Vetula and Walraven with another single, Aanensen reached on a error and Caroline Zarzycki singled to plate Gruber, who stole third earlier in the at-bat.

Walraven hit a solo homer in the bottom of the fourth, to make it 10-2. Disharoon ended the game with a two-run triple with no outs in the bottom of the fifth.

Each of the 10 Lady Grizzlies whofound their way into the lineup had at least one hit. Vetula finished the game 3-for-4 with three runs and an RBI. Disharoon was also 3-for-4, including two triples, with two RBIs. Walraven went 3-for-3 with three runs and an RBI.

Bethany Hyde earned the win for Creekview with just five innings of work. She allowed three runs, but no earned runs. She walked three and allowed three hits.

Emily Voigt took the loss for Sequoyah (0-1, 0-1). She allowed seven runs, six of which were earned, on 11 hits in three innings.

Lanet Joyner, Kendall Williams, Cat Novack and Madison Gianfala each at a hit for the Lady Chiefs.
