Peyton Muse and Allie Furr each recorded three hits to lead Cedar Creek (8-5, 1-0) to a 15-5 run-rule win over Ouachita Christian Tuesday night in Monroe.

Chloe Brashear pitched a complete-game two-hitter, striking out six batters.

“We played really well today in all aspects of the game,” said Creek head coach Julie Riser. “Chloe pitched well while only giving up two hits. We did a good job of scoring; moving runners and scoring them when we needed to. I’m proud of the team and how we’re coming together right now.”

Muse was 3-for-4 with 4 RBI and 2 runs scored while Furr was 3-for-4 with 4 runs scored to lead the Creek offense which totaled 12 hits in the ball game.

Olivia Underwood was 2-for-4 with two runs and an RBI while Lillian Soto (1-4, run), Brashear (1-3, RBI), Mallory Smith (1-4, run), Anna Grace Lee (1-2, 2 runs), Lizzie Adams (2 runs, RBI) and Bailey Adams (run, RBI) all so contributed to the offensive explosion against the Eagles.

Brashear, Muse and Underwood each recorded doubles while Underwood (2), Furr and Soto recorded stolen bases.

The Lady Cougars were 2-1 over the past weekend, defeating 5A Ouachita 16-1 and 4A Neville 11-1 while falling 16-6 to 5A Alexandria Senior High.

Muse, Soto and McAdams each recorded two RBI while Furr, Muse and Lee (3) each scored multiple runs in the win over Neville. McAdams recorded the complete-game in the circle, allowing just 1 run on four hits with two strikeouts.

Soto (4-4, 3 runs) and Adams (3-4, 3 RBI) led the Creek offensive attack in the loss to ASH.

Furr (3-4, 4 runs, 2 RBI), Muse (3-4, 2 runs, 4 RBI), Soto (2 runs, 2 RBI) and Adams (2 RBI) led the Lady Cougars in the win over Ouachita. Brashear picked up the win in the circle against the Lions, allowing just two hits and one run while striking out four.
