Woodward, Okla. — The Boomer softball team won its second game in a row Tuesday and improved its season record to 13-12.

Woodward built a 3-0 lead then turned back an Elk City threat in the seventh for a 3-2 win at the high school field.

Adyson Clark pitched five innings for the victory with Hillary Hurst pitching the final two frames. Torie Morning was the losing pitcher.

The Boomers started fast with two runs in the opening inning.

Devre Newby singled and Karlie Whitworth doubled to start the game. Kameron Pope singled home a run and Whitworth scored on a wild pitch.

Pope blasted a home run in the third inning for a 3-0 advantage.

The Boomers missed a chance to pad their lead by leaving the bases loaded in the inning.

In the seventh Elk City scored twice on wild pitches before a pop up ended the game.

Woodward goes to Vici on Thursday.
