SEYMOUR — The Warriorettes lost in the first round last season but they left little doubt that they would be advancing this year as they would blow past a winless Mormon Trail squad 12-0 in three innings.

Seymour got a favorable draw as they opened up their postseason play at home against a team on a 28-game losing streak that hasn’t won a road game in over two years.

The scoring was early and often for the Warriorettes with seniors Hannah Hinners’ RBI triple and Nadia Howell’s RBI double giving Seymour a 2-0 lead after one inning.

They would continue in the second inning with Hinners knocking home another run with a RBI single. Then with the bases loaded, Thayda Houser would clear the bases with a three-RBI double to left-center field to increase the lead to 6-0.

Mormon Trail’s Chelsea Johnson started to have trouble finding the strike zone in the third inning as she would surrender six free passes by way of walks or hit-batters. In fitting fashion, a wild pitch would push the score to 12-0 to end the game.

Hinners and Houser both finished with three RBIs while Howell added two of her own with Dylan Murphy, Ori Trimble and Kaitlyn Couchman each chipping in one RBI.

Houser got the start and the win after pitching three hitless innings with four strikeouts.

Seymour (17-13) travel to Corydon on Wednesday at 7 p.m. to face Wayne (20-8) in the regional quarterfinals.
