CARLSBAD — Carlsbad jumped on Clovis High’s girls early and the Cavegirls rolled to a 7-0, 12-2 District 4-5A doubleheader sweep on Saturday.

Allie Carrigan went six innings for Carlsbad in the opener, allowing five hits and striking out 10. The Cavegirls (12-6, 2-0) plated two runs in the first, two more in the third and three in the fifth off Clovis freshman Lynnae Logan, who pitched both games.

“We didn’t hit the ball very well, and they capitalized on our mistakes,” said CHS coach Brandi Thomas, who was ejected in the sixth inning of the opener after an argument with the home plate umpire.

Logan allowed 10 hits, walked three and struck out four in that game.

In the nightcap, Carlsbad’s Megan Navarrete pitched a complete-game five-hitter, striking out three, and her team backed her with a 15-hit attack.

The Lady Cats (11-9, 1-3) scored single runs in each of the first two innings in the second game, with Kim Lumsden and Teshia Lujan crossing the plate, but they were unable to hold off the Cavegirls.

Lujan, Jordan Garrett and Brittany Mascarenas led the CHS attack for the day, each collecting a pair of hits in the doubleheader.

Carlsbad also sweep the Lady Cats in junior varsity play, winning 13-3 and 16-1.
