Presley West had a two-run single to get things started here Tuesday night, and Kennedi Reed had a two-run homerun to cap the night, as Oneida got District 4-A play started off on the right foot with an 11-0 win over Wartburg.

Tuesday's game was called after 4.5 innings, with Oneida pitcher Amanda May completing the shutout for the Lady Indians.

Tesla Huling and Reed both scored on West's one-out single in the bottom of the first to get the scoring started for Oneida. Micah Stephens would later score on a sacrifice fly by Ali Neal as the Lady Indians built the lead to 3-0.

Huling scored again in the second inning, on an RBI single by Stephens, while Jenna Bridges also scored on an RBI double by Reed. A sacrifice by West scored Reed, while May scored as well, as the Lady Indians went on top 7-0.

The hits kept coming in the third, as Neal scored after a leadoff double, followed by a score by Shyann West. Reed's home run scored herself and Bridges to cap the Lady Indians' scoring. The inning ended with Stephens stranded on third after a two-out triple.

Cassy Lee got on base with a one-out single in the bottom of the fourth, but Wartburg was able to end the inning with Lee in scoring position.

Tuesday's game was Oneida's first district game of the season. Monday's game at Wartburg was postponed due to weather.
