The Southwood softball team finally got their game in with Tippecanoe Valley and it was worth the wait as the Lady Knghts collected 13 hits and score in each of the last four innings in a 10-8 win over the Vikings.
Valley would take a 3-0 lead in to the third when the Lady Knights got busy with a two out rally. Kassidy Simpson would single and was followed by a Brooke Elliott single. Both runners would advance on a wild pitch before Skylar Chain reached on an error to make it 3-1. Delayne Gentry would then single home Elliott and Chain to tie the score at 3. Kassidy Atwood would then reach on an error to put runners on second and third when a Bailey Lundmark single gave the Knights a 5-3 lead.
The Knights would extend their lead in the fourth. Simpson would draw a lead off walk and was sacrificed to second by Keegan Simpson. Elliott would then single home Simpson for a 6-3 lead before Elliott scored on an error for a 7-3 score.
Valley would rally in the top of the fifth, scoring 4 times to tie the score at 7 with the Knights answering with a run in the bottom. Makayla Proffitt would walk before stealing second. With one out Simpson would single with Proffitt scoring on an error to give Southwood an 8-7 lead.
Valley would come back and tie the score in the top of the sixth, again with the Lady Knights having an answer. Chain would lead off with a double that was followed by a Gentry single. With one out Lundmark would single home Chain for a 9-8 lead. With the bases loaded Keagan Simpson would walk, forcing home Lundmark for the 10-8 score.
The Knights would hold off a Valley rally in the seventh for the 10-8 win.
With Keagan Simpson back in the line up I probably got the sisters backwards, but will have it figured out the next game 🙂
