Softball roundups: Cathedral earns split

ALEXANDRIA, La. — Cathedral School was able to get a split decision in Friday’s doubleheader at the Grace Christian Tournament.

The Lady Green Wave tallied a 2-1 win over Houma Christian in the first game, followed by a 4-3 loss to St. Joseph-Plaucheville (La.).

“I think we weren’t on top of our game today. That big win (Thursday) night took a lot of wind out of us. It took a little while to get going,” Cathedral coach Gary Blackwell said.

In the Lady Green Wave’s win over the Lady Warriors, Mollie Devening allowed one run — none after the first inning — on five hits, struck out seven and walked two in a complete-game victory.

Cathedral used a two-run rally in the bottom of the third inning to win the ball game despite being held to just four hits.

The second game wasn’t as kind for the Lady Green Wave as their defense let them down. After going errorless in game one, Cathedral committed three errors in the loss to the Lady Eagles.

Cathedral and St. Joseph-Plaucheville both scored one run each in the third inning. But it was the fourth inning that proved to be the key, when the Lady Eagles manufactured a run to take a 2-1 lead.

That run proved to be important, because while Cathedral scored two runs in the top of the fifth inning for a 3-2 lead, St. Joseph plated two runs in the bottom of the fifth for the come-from-behind win.

“We weren’t as crisp as we have been. We didn’t hit the ball well,” Blackwell said.

Despite having seven hits against St. Joseph, Cathedral did not have any extra-bases hit or any multiple hitters. Ginny Daggett suffered the loss despite going all five innings with three strikeouts and two walks.

Cathedral (6-3) takes on Holden at 12:30 p.m. and Oak Hill at 2 p.m.

Franklin County gets win, tie

Led by KeKe Collins’ three-run home run in the bottom of the first inning, Franklin County finally picked up its first win of the season by defeating the Georgetown Lady Bulldogs 10-3.

Rachel Dier was the winning pitcher after an up-and-down performance on the mound. She allowed just four hits over five innings, but she also walked six batters and struck out just three.

Collins’ home run helped give Franklin County an early 4-0 lead, and by the time the third inning was over, the Lady Bulldogs from Meadville had a commanding 8-3 lead.

Lay Lay Griffin and Allison Hauer each went 2-for-3 while Abbie Graves and Kenyatta Hunt each had a double.

In game two, Franklin County scored four runs in the top of the fifth inning to take a 7-5 lead, only to see Calvin rally for two runs in the bottom of the fifth to end the game in a 7-7 tie.

Collins went 3-for-3 with a triple and Mildred Starks went 2-for-2 with a double for the Lady Bulldogs.

Franklin County (1-3-2) takes on Northwood-Lena at 2 p.m. today and Montgomery at 5 p.m.
