Friday night on the diamond: Hudson softball walks it off against Carthage

Hudson vs Carthage softball and baseball highlihgts

LUFKIN, TX (KTRE) - Hudson Coach Wesley Capps had one message for his team on Friday against No. 16 Carthage - finish every play. It worked.

Hits were sparse in the game dominated by great pitching. Odette Lopez pitched a complete game giving up just 5 hits on 12 strike outs.

Campbell Selman got the first score of the game in the third with a triple to center. Her teammate Amzee Gerard would score on the play. Carthage answered back in the fourth. No one would sore again until the seventh.

It was like a scene out of a movie. Two outs and a full count with a runner on third, Lexi Paulette battled and stayed alive with several foul balls. She would connect up the middle on what looked like a routine throw out to first but the first basemen could not hold on to the ball and Hudson scored on a walk off.
