The Lady Lobos finally broke through in the third inning. Following a walk, Lehman junior Kyns Noriega blasted an RBI triple to deep left center field to put Lehman up 2-0. From there, the Lady Lobos opened the spigot, scoring five more runs in the inning. In total, Lehm- an sent 11 batters to the plate and recorded seven hits to take a command- ing 7-0 lead. Lehman went 5 for 7 with RISP in the inning. Adams attributed the Lady Lobos success to ex- ecution at the plate and on the bases. Lehman's Noriega said the team was "seeing the ball better" and adjusting to Grefe's slow speed. While the Lehman of- fense succeeded, pitcher Karina Reta found her groove. Strong command guided Reta, who kept the Anderson offense off- balance toward a com- plete game shutout. Reta went the distance, giving up only eight hits and gathering three stirkouts. Only three times did an Anderson Lady Trojan reach scoring posi- tion against Reta; she thwarted each threat, guided by solid defen- sive play behind her. The Lady Lobos added their final two runs in the fifth inning. With the win, Lehman continues to keep pace in 14-6A play. Consistency will be the key for Adams. For Noriega, it's build- ing confidence that's an important factor. "I feel like we've been playing scared lately, but hopefully this boosts our confidence and we'll do it more often," she said.

The Maroons were on a streak of their own and also had the confi- dence of a 6-2 win in the first meeting against the Lobos. Unpredictably, an Aus- tin High goal in the first 30 seconds of match was the difference as Lehman fell 1-0. Austin scored its goal following a defen- sive lapse in the center of the Lobos' defense. The Lobos fought hard through the remaining 79 minutes to change the outcome but Austin High limited the scor- ing chances. As a result, Lehman could not get a clean shot on goal throughout most of the first half. Playing up top for much of the game, se- niors Bryan Percastegui and Rene Torres played off each other to try and break through the expe- rienced back line of the Maroons. Lehman failed to capitalize on a couple of crosses into the box by wing ]orge "Coco" Balderas, which were headed wide of the goal. But the game showed progress the Lobos have made throughout the season, as the Lobos have adjusted to the quality of play in a new district. Assistant coach Ramez Antoun, who filled in for head coach Brad Baker on the night, explained the difference.
