Bulldogs take twinbill from NCTC, 8-0, 7-3

By MIKE PHILLIPS / Corsicana Sun  —

Ciera Luna is almost unhittable at home — almost.

She has allowed only one hit in two starts at Navarro, where she tossed a five-inning one-hitter Wednesday to help the Bulldogs (5-9) sweep North Central Texas. Luna and the Dawgs won 8-0 in the opener and the Dawgs won 7-3 in the second game.

Luna struck out five and Miranda Worthington went 2 for 2 with a two-run homer and Catherine Alvarado went 2 for 3 with an RBI double in the first game.

Alvarado had two doubles and drove in a run and Nicole Matise hit a two-run home run in Navarro’s five-run second inning in the second game.

The Bulldogs, who had a tough road trip to Alabama, going 1-4  over the weekend, bounced back with the sweep at home and are 3-1 at home.

Stephanie Buenrostro went five innings, giving up three hits and a run to get the win in the second game.

Katelyn Cooper and Alex Eppinette relieved her.

Corsicana grad Sidney Kirk, took the loss on the mound for NCTC after giving up one earned run in five innings.

Navarro hosts seventh-ranked Wallace State-Hanceville (10-6) for a Friday doubleheader beginning at noon at Jesse and Lou Cummings Field.  NC met Wallace-Hanceville at last weekend’s Creek Indian Juco Softball Classic in Atmore, Ala., and dropped a 3-0 decision.
