Lady ’Cats grab 1st win of 2014
DELPHOS — Jefferson’s fast-pitch softball team had not won a game since the 2012 season.
That 26-game-plus losing streak came to an abrupt end Wednesday afternoon as the Lady Wildcats downed Perry 13-9 at Lady Wildcat Field.
The non-league game was originally slated for Perry’s home diamond but due to soggy conditions there, it was moved to Jefferson High School.
Jefferson (1-8) built a 7-1 lead before the Lady Commodores battled back to assume a 9-7 lead after four frames.
Delphos then erupted for a 6 spot in the top of the fifth and made it stand up.
The winning pitcher was Claire Thompson.
The losing pitcher was C. Lambert.
The leading hitter for the Wildcats was Kiersten Teman, who went 2-2 with two singles and two walks.
Jefferson hosts Spencerville Monday.
