HAYS - Delayed by 24 hours the Hays High Indians and Great Bend Panthers opened their three game regular season series in Hays on Wednesday.

Hays scored a pair of runs in the bottom of the third for a 3-1 victory.

Hays High opened the scoring in the bottom of the second when Dan Willeford drove in Alyse Zimmerman. Great Bend responded back with a single tally in the top of the third to tie the game at one a piece.

Hays broke the tie in the bottom of the same inning. Heads up base running by Shae Augustine and Alyse Zimmerman put both in scoring position on a ball that got just by the Panther catcher. During the same at-bat Brynlee Brous hit a hard single to right field that scored Augustine to score from third. An error in right field allowed Zimmerman to keep running and push the lead to 3-1.

There would be no more scoring for the rest of the game. Aubree Thomas sat down Great Bend in order in the fourth inning. She worked around a double in the fifth and overcame an error in each the sixth and seventh inning to preserve the 3-1 victory.

Thomas struck out eight and walked none. She allowed five hits in the victory.

Hays improves to 6-5 on the year and 5-0 in conference play. The Panthers fall to 13-4 and 6-1. The Indians head to Great Bend tomorrow for a double header with the Panthers.
