Oneida kept its second place District 4-A season intact Tuesday by taking both games of a double header with Sunbright at Bear Creek. The Lady Indians won the first game 11-0 in 4.5 innings and the second game 17-0 in two innings.

The two teams played the double header after Monday's game, which had been scheduled for Bear Creek, was rained out. Tuesday's game was originally scheduled for Sunbright.

In game one Monday, the Lady Indians put one run on the board in the first inning, then expanded the lead to 4-0 in the second inning before taking control with a 5-run third inning.

Kennedy Reed walked, then scored on an RBI double by Micah Stephens for Oneida's only run of the first inning.

In the second inning, Cassy Lee reached base on an error and later scored, while Kassidy West reached base on balls and scored as well.

Jenna Bridges scored West on a sacrifice RBI, while Reed reached base on balls and would score her second run of the afternoon.

The third inning saw Reed score yet again after reaching base on a double, while Lee and West added another run as well.

The inning started with Shyann West reaching base on a double and Lee following with a single, while Kassidy West walked. All would score. Shyann West scored first, while Ali Neal scored Lee and Kassidy West with a two-run single. Moments later, Micah Stephens' two-run single scored Neal and Reed.

Oneida scored two more runs in the fourth inning, with an RBI double by Reed scoring Neal. Bridges scored as well.

In game two, Oneida scored six runs in the first inning and 11 in the second.

Neal, Reed  and Stephens all scored three runs, while Bridges and Kaylan McCartt scored two runs.

It did not take Oneida long to get started. A leadoff walk by Bridges resulted in a run in the next at-bat when Neal's RBI double scored Bridges. Neal would score on an RBI double by Stephens, followed by a Cassy Lee sacrifice that scored Reed. Stephens would score for Oneida, as would designated hitter Jasmine Jones, who reached base after being hit by a pitch. McCartt reached base on an error and scored on an RBI double by Kassidy West.

In the second inning, Neal scored on an RBI double by Reed after a leadoff walk. Reed would score as well, as would Stephens and Lee, each of who reached base on balls.  Shyann West was also walked, and later scored. McCartt had an RBI single to score Lee.

After a walk by Kassidy West, the highlight of the night came when Jenna Bridges hit a 3-run homerun out of the park to score McCartt and West.

But the fireworks were not finished. Neal walked on the next at bat,, followed by a Reed double, setting the stage for a two-run single by Stephens. Stephens would score herself before the inning finally ended.
