WILLIAMS - The Williams Lady Vikings may have found a way into the state playoffs with clutch late season wins last week.

Before the wins, the Lady Vikes suffered an April 20 loss to Sedona, 12-3.

Head Coach Edgar Brown said Sedona's offense was relentless while their defense shut down the Lady Vikings' bats.

"Sedona just picked away at us all the way," Brown said.

Sedona held the Lady Vikings scoreless into the sixth inning when the girls were finally able to send three base runners across home plate.

Brown said poor defensive play likely caused the loss.

"It was mostly errors that got us and when that happens your bats don't come alive," he said.

After a Rough Rock forfeit, the Lady Vikes took on Tonapah April 21 in difficult weather conditions.

"It was cold, wet and miserable," Brown said. "It did everything on us."

Tonapah jumped ahead 5-1 in the fourth inning. Although the Lady Vikes were able to score throughout the game, Tonapah held the lead into the seventh inning when the Lady Vikings pulled out a late inning 13-12 victory.

"The girls hung in there," Brown said. "It was a battle for them but they never gave up. That's what it takes. You've got to be positive and keep playing hard. That was one of the games we needed to win to get ourselves a berth in the state playoffs."

The Lady Vikes carried their momentum from the win against Tonapah into their game against Valley-Sanders on Saturday. The Lady Vikes prevailed with a commanding 15-0 win in four innings.

The junior varsity squad also came away with a 15-5 win against Valley-Sanders in five innings.
