+ Page 2B SPORTS Hays Free Press March 27, 2013 Ineligible player Hays forced to for00fit win over Lehman BY MOSES LEOS III Earlier this week, Hays CISD Public Information Officer Tim Savoy acknowledged that the Hays Rebel softball team had forfeited a previously won district contest due to an ineligible athlete. During the first Hays/Lehman softball game on Feb. 26, the Reb- els had an ineligible player on their roster. The Rebels would go on to win the contest 11-0. In the University Interscholas- tic League (UIL) mlebook, Section 1207 (c): "In the event an ineligible contestant is used in any League game or contest, knowingly or un- knowingly, the minimum penalty shall be forfeiture of the game, contest or event." "The player was not academi- cally ineligible," said Savoy in an emailed response. "The player's previous athletic participation form was not on file at the time of the game. It was a paperwork filing error, but it still resulted in forfeiting the game." Savoy said the penalties Hays would incur only extended to the Lehman-Hays softball game. No other forfeitures or penalties will be assessed against the team. Prior to the incident, the Rebel softball program was in the midst of a 15-game winning streak, with a 7-0 mark in District 27-4A play. Additionally, the Rebels had been ranked second in the Texas Girls Coaches Association (TGCA) 4A State softball poll. In the record books, Hays re- cord now stands at 21-2-1 overall, 6-1 in district.

The Lobos beat Hays Tuesday night 2-1 in their second matchup of the season. Hunter Lehman earned the win for the Lobos but Justin Penney obtaining the save. The Lobos hand the Rebels their first district loss of 2013. Hays Softball Continued from pg. 1A on. The next three batters that Hays sent up, came right back down thanks to some very good fielding by the Lehman defense. During Lehman's turn at bat at the bottom of the second inning, with one out already on the board, Angel Cruz was walked. Alexis Trotter attempt- ed abunt, but the ball went up in the air where it could be fielded. Cruz was also thrown out at first and that ended the inning for the Lady Lobos. During their turns at bat, the Lehman players had is- sues with their bunts going up in the air where they could be fielded, instead of first bounc- ing off the ground. The bunt issue would plague Lehman throughout the game. Hays didn't score again un- til the top of the fourth inning. Karina Rocha was on third base after stealing second and benefitted from a poor throw- ing decision by Jules Hernan- dez. Rocha went home on the bat of Gabi Albarez. The inning would end-Hays 5, Lehman 0. In the fifth inning, Lehman replaced Erin Mendoza at the mound with Angel Cruz, who gave up two runs by Hannah Ramsey and Clarissa Gonza- lez. At Lehman's turn at bat, two runners were left on base. At the bottom of the fifth inning, the score stood at Hays 7, Leh- man 0. :, ' Lehman continued to find their defensive legs, and did not allow Hays to score any more runs for the remainder of the game. Lehman scored one run in the bottom of the seventh in- ning. Clarissa Rayos and Lo- ren Pizzini were on base when Jules Hernandez came to bat. Hernandez hit a double that allowed Rayos to score Leh- man's only run of the game. The final score was Hays 7, Lehman 1. Hays Girls Soccer Continued from pg. 1B working on strong passing and getting the ball to feet. It paid off," Humphreys said. Another push to score by the Rebels at 5:51 missed the goal, flying left. The teams played back and forth for the rest of the half with no score. The Lady Rebels came out in the second half hard with nu- merous shots on goal. At the 21:21 mark, Hays' Callie Torres got off a shot that hit the back of the net. The Lady Rebs led 2-1 and never allowed another score. Sophomore Torres said, "We knew their offense would be strong and our defense had to be stronger. They stepped up to- night and shut down every goal scoring attempt from East View." Late in the second half, with crowds going crazy, and refer- ees trying to keep the push- ing and shoving under con- trol, both teams were fighting to score again. In the last two minutes of the game, Savannah Derrick almost took a back- ward kick into the goal, and followed 30 seconds later with a headshot that went high. A jubilant group of players took their job across the field at Shelton Stadium, shouting in anticipation of their next match. How will they focus on the next game? "We will just play every game like it's our last," Torres said. Hassan Alissa TerryAIlen Andrew Alpar Charies Anderson C.
