MORRIS - The Morris Lady Eagles held off a late seventh-inning charge Tuesday evening to earn their 18th win of the season.

The Lady Eagles led 17-10 going into the top of the seventh in their Top 5 showdown Tuesday against the Prague Lady Red Devils. Prague tallied six runs in the frame and had the go-ahead run on first with two outs. The rally was thwarted, however, as the final batter flew out to Mehenwa Williams in right field to bring the game to a close  with Morris clinging to a 1-run victory, 17-16.

Morris entered the contest ranked second in Class 5A, while the visiting Lady Red Devils were two spots behind the Lady Eagles in the latest 5A rankings at No. 4. Prior to Tuesday, the only loss for Prague in 2018 was a 12-9 setback to Okemah March 17 at the Okemah Festival.
