Minster downs Lady Lancers
MINSTER — The Lincolnview softball team traveled to Minster to take on the Wildcats in a varsity/junior varsity contest Saturday.
The Lady Lancers came out on the wrong end of a 3-1 score in the varsity contest and an 18-7 loss in the JV contest.
The Lancers’ lone run came on a triple to straightaway center off the bat of freshman Autumn Proctor. Lancer senior Kaitlyn Brant laid down a perfect sacrifice bunt to score Proctor, giving the Lancers a 1-0 lead after three innings. Lancer hurler Ashley McClure and a solid defense allowed no runs through three innings.
In the fourth inning, the Wildcats tallied a run on a wild pitch to tie the game at one apiece
They tallied two more runs in the fourth inning on two uncharacteristic Lancer fielding errors. All three runs were unearned.
After the fourth inning, McClure needed to be taken out of the game due to tightness in her back. Senior Courtney Gorman came on to pitch the next two innings in relief and shut down the potent Wildcat offense the rest of the way.
Wildcat hurler Kayla Richards limited the Lancer offense to just the one earned run on three base hits. Richard improves to 18-4 on the season with McClure taking the tough loss to drop to 16-4 personally. The Lancers are 17-4.
Lincolnview will continue down the tournament trail as they travel to the Elida District to take on the Continental Pirates 5 p.m. Wednesday.
