Emma Lukasek delivered the final heroics Monday as the Kingfisher High School softball team erased a threerun deficit in its final at-bat.

Lukasek slapped a threerun double in the bottom of the seventh as KHS defeated the OKC Broncos 12-11 in a back-and-forth affair.

Dramatics weren’t needed the next night as Kingfisher tamed Ringwood 10-2 in the final home game of the season.

The Lady Jackets trailed the Broncos by as many as five runs and were down 11-8 entering the final frame.

Natalie Dick, Brittany Willson, Addyson Willson and Kynli Boeckman all drew walks in the inning.

Boeckman’s walk scored Brittany Willson to pull KHS within 11-9 and kept the bases loaded.

That followed a fielder’s choice by Merrin Evans, which led to the second out of the inning.

Down to the last out, Lukasek delivered her game-winning hit, which was her third of the night and fourth time to reach base safely.

She also had an RBI single in the second inning as KHS erased a 5-0 hole to tie the game.

Dick had a two-run double and Mya Dewberry an RBI double in the frame.

Siera Stitt put KHS up 6-5 in the third with a fielder’s choice RBI that scored Evans.

The lead didn’t last as the Broncos pushed home two runs in each the fourth and fifth innings to reclaim a 9-6 advantage.

Brittany Willson pulled Kingfisher within 9-8 with a two-run double in the bottom of the fifth.

The Broncos scored a run in the sixth and then another in the seventh to extend their lead.

Eight KHS batters had at least one hit in the game as the team had 16 total.

Lukasek led the way as she finished with three hits, four RBIS and two runs scored.

Evans also had three hits and scored three times in the game.

Dick, Dewberry, Boeckman and Taylor Mills had two hits apiece.

The last-inning surge gave the win to Natalie Dick, who pitched all seven innings.

Only seven of the runs she gave up were earned.

KHS got on top of Ringwood early and didn’t lose it as the team’s seniors Lukasek and Brittany Willson were celebrated in their last home game.

Lukasek was 1 for 3 and drove in two runs, including one in the fifth inning.

That’s when KHS plated three runs to end the game via the run rule.

Brittany Willson was 2 for 2 and scored a run.

That came in the third inning as KHS blew the game open with four runs to go up 6-0.

After collecting a single, Brittany Willson and Dewberry scored on Addyson Willson’s triple.

Addyson Willson also had an RBI single in the fourth.

Kingfisher had 18 hits in the game.

Everyone in Kingfisher’s lineup had a hit and eight batters delivered at least two hits.

Boeckman was 3 for 3 and scored three times.

Evans and Mills had two hits and an RBI each.

KHS was 15-17 after the win. The Lady Jackets wrap up their regular season Tuesday at Alva after traveling to Bridge Creek on Monday.
