Day One Recap

FARMERS BRANCH, Texas – Just as its teams did a day earlier, the East Division put together a nine-win performance on Saturday against the West to claim bragging rights at the 2007 American Southwest Conference First Pitch Softball Tournament at Oran Good Park.

No. 11-ranked Louisiana College, Mississippi College and Texas-Tyler – all East teams – finished the annual two-day cross-division tourney with spotless 4-0 records. East Texas Baptist went 3-1, while Howard Payne’s 3-1 mark was the best from the West.

Hardin-Simmons, Mary Hardin-Baylor and Texas Lutheran (West Division) split their four games, as did the East’s Texas-Dallas, which bounced back for a 2-0 Saturday.

Nine of the 14 games on Friday ended with a differential of three runs or less, but only three did on Saturday. Louisiana College and Texas-Tyler reached double digits in both of their games on Saturday and each had two games over the tourney that ended in a run-rule after five innings. Texas-Tyler, which remained the only team in the ASC with a perfect record on the season (11-0), plated a tournament-best 41 runs. Three of Mississippi College’s four victories were against 2006 ASC tournament teams.

LC and Texas-Dallas have already begun ASC play, but the bulk of conference competition begins next weekend (March 9-10).
