Prep softball roundups: Bairnsfather perfect, Monterey wins 15-0

MONTEREY — Monterey junior Ellen Bairnsfather threw a perfect game and struck out four batters as the Lady Wolves took care of the Harrisonburg Lady Bulldogs 15-0 in three innings Thursday afternoon in their District 6-B opener.

Bairnsfather didn’t walk a batter and helped her own cause by going 2-for-3 with a double as part of Monterey’s 12-hit attack. Karlee Woodruff went 2-for-3 with a triple and two runs batted in and Ashley Willson was 2-for-3 with a pair of RBIs.

Monterey jumped out to a 4-0 lead before Harrisonburg went to bat in the first inning. Even though that was all the run support Bairnsfather would need, the Lady Wolves gave her plenty more with five runs in the top of the second inning and six runs in the top of the third.

Two of the Lady Wolves’ runs were unearned as the Lady Bulldogs ended up committing eight errors. Paige Bryan had a double and went 2-for-3 and Sara Sims also went 2-for-3 for Monterey, which improved to 10-1 overall and 1-0 in district play.

The Lady Wolves host Glenmora next Tuesday at 5 p.m.

Avoyelles 5, Vidalia 0

MOREAUVILLE, La. — Had it not been for a single given up by Avoyelles pitcher Brittany Daigepat and an error, Vidalia would have been on the wrong side of a perfect game.

Daigepat ended up pitching a complete game and struck out nine batters while walking none as the Lady Mustangs shut out the Lady Vikings in a District 3-3A game Thursday afternoon.

Amber Edmond broke a scoreless ball game with a solo home run in the bottom of the second inning. It remained 1-0 until Avoyelles broke the game open with four runs in the bottom of the sixth.

Despite being tagged with the loss, Laura Perilloux pitched a good game herself. She gave up four hits and walked two with one strikeout. Vidalia (4-7, 0-3) will try once again for its first win in district play when it hosts Bolton next Monday afternoon.
