Carsin Spurlock had a big day at the plate and Alyssa Martin tossed a complete game to propel the Glenbrook Lady Apaches past Tallulah Academy 8-4 on Monday at Glenbrook.

The Lady Apaches led from start to finish, jumping out to an early lead and holding off a Lady Trojan rally attempt in the seventh inning to preserve the win.

Aubrie Dickson scored Kate Marvin on a groundout in the first inning to get Glenbrook on the scoreboard, followed by an RBI single from Carsin Spurlock, scoring Amber Lovitt.

Alyssa Martin made quick work of Tallulah in the first, before coming up to the plate in the second and helped her own cause with an RBI single to score Faith Earnhardt.

In the fourth, Spurlock came up with two runners on base and a chance to break the game open, which she did with a towering triple to the wall, scoring both runners.

Tallulah started to mount a comeback in their final at bat, pushing three runs across, but Alyssa Martin induced back-to-back grounders to finish the game and move the Lady Apaches into a four-way tie for first place in district 6AA.

Carsin Spurlock finished 2-4 with a triple, single and three RBI. Alyssa Martin finished 2-4 with a pair of singles and two RBI. Aubrie Dickson finished 2-3 with two singles and Megan Sims went 1-3 with a single.

Martin struck out five batters and allowed five hits in a complete game effort.

Glenbrook moves their record to 14-3 with the win.

The Lady Apaches are back in action today as they travel to Coushatta to take on the Riverdale Academy Rebels.
