Softball roundups: Cathedral falls short after last-inning rally

WESSON — Wesson answered Cathedral’s five-run rally in the top of the fourth inning by scoring three runs in the bottom of the fourth and the game-winning run in the bottom of the fifth inning as the Lady Cobras defeated the Lady Green Wave 9-8 Tuesday night.

In a game that had plenty of momentum shifts, it was Wesson that had the one that counted the most. The Lady Cobras could have folded the tent after Cathedral came back from being down 5-3 after three innings to take an 8-5 lead heading into the bottom of the fourth. Instead, they tied the game in the bottom of the fourth and won the game an inning later.

Mak Rials helped out by keeping Cathedral off the scoreboard in the top of the fifth inning and was the winning pitcher.

Beth Fortenbery hit a home run and Kimble Devening had a triple for Cathedral (2-1). The Lady Green Wave hosts Loyd Star Thursday at 4 p.m.

Monterey 3, St. Joseph’s-Plaucheville 1

MONTEREY, La. — Paige Bryan didn’t pitch her best game Tuesday afternoon, but it was good enough to help the Monterey Lady Wolves defeat the St. Joseph’s-Plaucheville Lady Eagles.

Bryan gave up three hits and walked three batters in five innings, but she also kept St. Joseph’s-Plaucheville off the scoreboard until the top of the fifth inning and she struck out six batters.

Monterey jumped out to a 2-0 lead in the bottom of the first inning, but Lady Eagles pitcher Decuir did her best to keep them in the ball game by pitching four straight scoreless innings.

It was a 2-1 game until the bottom of the sixth when the Lady Wolves managed to bring one run in to give them some much-needed breathing room. Ellen Bairnsfather pitched the final two innings for Monterey and she preserved the win with two shutout innings.

Taylor Morace was the only player for either team to have an extra-base hit was the game’s only multiple hitter. She went 2-for-3 with a double and one run batted in.

Monterey (6-1) plays at Block Thursday afternoon at 4 p.m.

Bogue Chitto 11, Franklin County 5

MEADVILLE — Mattie Avants went 3-for-3 with a double and Bogue Chitto took advantage of nine Franklin County errors as the Lady Bobcats defeated the Lady Bulldogs Tuesday night.

Bogue Chitto scored four runs in the top of the first inning and had a 5-1 lead over Franklin County after two innings of play. The Lady Bulldogs scored two runs in the bottom of the third to make it a 5-3 game. But that would be as close as they would get to taking the lead as the Lady Bobcats scored three runs in the top of the fourth and two in the top of the sixth for a commanding 10-4 lead.

Josie Porter was 2-for-2 with a double and Brady Davis went 2-for-4 for Bogue Chitto. KeKe Collins went 3-for-3 with a double and Karlee Mullins was 2-for-3 to lead Franklin County (0-2-1).
