Lady Eagles Rally to defeat the Vikings in Softball

04/08/2015

The softball team went to Hoggard as well last night and came away with a 5-3 conference win. Sarah Horrell pitched the first 4 innings giving up 2 runs on 7 hits with 1 strike out. Hannah Boring came in to pitch the last 3 innings giving up 1 run on no hits and 2 strike outs and earning the win. Trailing 2-0 in the sixth Lauren Brooks and Jordan Floyd were hit by consecutive pitches and a timely hit by Schae Dickson scored our first run plating Lauren. The seventh started off with us down 2-1. After a strike out to start the inning, Pearson Yopp singled and was thrown out at second on a Rachel Swartwood fielder's choice for the second out. Lauren Brooks then started a 2 out 5 hit 2 walk rally that scored 4 runs. Jordan Floyd, Schae Dickson, Jordan Smith and Jessica Stergakos followed Lauren's hit. We allowed 1 run to score in the bottom of the 7th to get the out and preserve the win. Next game for softball is Saturday at the Hoggard invitational. Thanks
