Following its first loss of the season, Cotulla has battled back in league play, notching five straight wins to remain tied atop the district standings.
Both Cotulla and Poth have identical 11-1 marks in 27-3A.
Since losing to Poth on March 26, the Cowgirls have reeled off six straight victories, topping Dilley 3-0, Jourdanton 14-3, Lytle 8-7, Poteet 13-0 and Karnes City 11-1. The team has outscored its opponents 49-11 in the second round of district play.
Allyse Leija has been a force for the Cowgirls on the mound as she has eclipsed over 100 strikeouts in district and has just over 200 strikeouts for the season.
Defensively, the Cowgirls have been stout, allowing four runs per game in league play while the offense has scored 130 runs or nearly 11 runs per game.
Cotulla was at Poth Tuesday night in a key outing for control of the district. With a win, Cotulla would move into first place with a game remaining against Natalia.
The Cowgirls previously defeated the Lady Mustangs in extra innings. If Poth wins they would hold a season sweep over Cotulla with one game remaining and the Cowgirls would need help in the final week of play for any shot at the league title.
