WCCA’s defense falters to Amite School, 8-7

WOODVILLE — Hannah Lanehart had a solid performance on the mound for Wilkinson County Christian Academy against a good Amite School Center team. The Lady Rams’ defense, however, let her down.

WCCA committed six errors and the Lady Rams’ last-inning rally fell just a little bit short as they lost the Lady Rebels 8-7 Saturday afternoon in a non-district contest that went five innings because of the one and a half hour time limit.

“We’ve played seven games in eight days. We’ve been doing pretty good,” Lady Rams assistant coach Jessie Toney said. “We’re steadily improving.”

And the fifth inning turned out to be the most exciting inning of the entire ball game.

Amite School Center had a 5-2 lead after four innings and added three more runs in the top of the fifth to grab what should have been a commanding 8-2 lead. But WCCA would not go away that easy. The Lady Rams scored five runs in the bottom of the fifth to make it an 8-7 game.

In the end, however, WCCA was not able to bring in the game-tying run that would have extended the game.

“Lanehart pitched a good game. We committed six errors. That was really the difference in the game,” Toney said. “ASC was in control until the last inning.”

Mary Kathryn Doucet went 2-for-3 and scored one run. Kelly Arnold had a single and a walk and scored in both instances.

WCCA (2-7, 1-2) returns to MAIS District 7-A action at 6 p.m. Monday when it hosts Trinity Episcopal.
