With one out Jenny Bentley would hit a line drive single to third and was followed by a Courtney Simpson single to left. One batter later, Bailey Lundmark singled singled to right, scoring Bentley to knot the score at 2. Kate Baxter was hit by a pitch to load the bases for Kenzie Rhamy, who singled to right, driving in Simpson to give the Lady Knights a 3-2 lead.

Bentley would bare down in the bottom of the 7th, striking out the first hitter and forcing a ground out on the second before giving up a single. Bentley would strike out the third out to preserve the 3-2 Southwood win.

Bentley would pitch 7 innings, striking out 14, walking 1 and giving up 8 hits.

Coach Troyer ” We got behind early but played good defense to keep us in the game behind a good pitching performance by Jenny. We left too many runners on base tonight which we got away with tonight. Finally in the seventh we got runners on and got good hits by Bailey Lundmark which scored Jenny Bentley and Kenzie Rhamey got the go ahead RBI single scoring Courtney Simpson in the seventh. This team never says die and is getting better everyday so proud of their finish tonight.”

The junior varsity fell to Whitko 13-6.
