In the opening game of pool play against Odessa, Trenton opened the scoring in the bottom of the third inning as Tosha Wilson scored on a single by Ally Ockenfels, with McKinley Hurley scoring when Megan Lynch reached via an error.

The game stayed at 2-0 until the bottom of the sixth, when Trenton scored four more runs to ice the game, as Lynch, Whitley Richman, Cassidy Cotton, and Daryian Otto scored runs. Against a high-octane Odessa offense, THS junior Mallory Hooyman threw a superb game, scattering six hits and striking out two, and walking nobody in the shutout effort. McKinley Hurley had four of the 12 hits in the win for Trenton, while Cassidy Cotton had a pair of RBI's.

In the second game in pool play against archrival Chillicothe, Trenton fell behind 1-0 in the first inning, but immediately responded in the bottom half as Madi Trump scored on a passed ball and Hurley scored on a fielders choice ground-ball off the bat of Makaila Capeder. Chillicothe managed to tie the game in the fourth inning, with Lady Bulldog coach John Cowling bringing in Hooyman to relieve Daryian Otto with the bases loaded and one out.

Hooyman enduced a fly-ball that Cassidy Cotton turned into a defensive gem, making the catch on the left field line and firing to second for the double play. Trenton led 5-4 going into the bottom of the fifth, and added to the lead with three runs. The game ended 8-4 due to the time limit, with THS victorious.

Trenton and Lexington, in the championship game, were scoreless through seven innings, but Lexington broke the ice with a run in the top of the eighth inning. In the bottom of the eighth, the Lady Bulldogs rallied with their backs against the wall. Tosha Wilson started the frame at second base, with the teams using the international tie-break rules. A fly ball by Madi Trump advanced Wilson to third, and scored on an error, with the throw going over the head of the third baseman. McKinley Hurley started a second rally with a walk, her third steal of the day, and an error that moved her to third. After a walk and a strikeout left runners at the corners with two outs, Megan Lynch gave the Trenton girls the championship with a game-winning liner to left field, scoring Hurley.

Over the three games, Hurley amassed eight runs for Trenton, Lexie Tolson had a pair of hits, and in the championship game, Daryian Otto had her best game as a Lady Bulldog pitcher, allowing one unearned run on only three hits and three walks, while striking out eight Minutewomen.

The Lady Bulldogs will play three of the next four afternoons, playing at Plattsburg (5 PM) on Monday, at Lathrop (5 PM) on Tuesday, and HOSTING Milan (5 PM) on Thursday. The Lady Bulldogs are now 6-1 on the season.

We heard, at 1:30 PM Monday, from Trenton A.D. Kris Ockenfels, that the Trenton at Plattsburg softball games for Monday night, have been cancelled due to wet field conditions. This includes middle school, junior varsity, and varsity games.

On Saturday, the Trenton Middle School softball team dominated the Hamilton Tournament, rolling through Gallatin 15-0, Cameron 21-2, and Hamilton 13-3 to win the title. TMS will play at Hamilton in 5 o'clock games on Tuesday (September 17th) of this week.
