Game Recap

Lady Panthers and Union County played a great Softball game Monday @ Union County.. It was a Pitchers duel between Knightstown’s Haley Fowler and Union Co.s Danielle Franklin..The Patriots struck first after Ryan Johnson caught a ball in Right field, she gunned it home for a near miss inning ending double play, as Union Countys runner barely avoided Vivian Goodpaster’s tag..With clutch pitching and defense every inning the whole game including a Triple play by the Panthers. Fowler struck out the batter with runners on 1st and 2nd. Goodpaster threw to 2nd with both runners getting big leads. Hayleigh Ooten threw to Brooke Vise getting the girl between 1st and 2nd, then Vise threw out the other runner at 3rd base with Tori McDonald capping off the Triple play with the tag. Down 1-0 in the top of the 6th inning, Goodpaster led off with a line drive double. Vise, with Noone expecting it, laid down the perfect Sacrifice bunt, moving Goodpaster to 3rd. Robyn Clark came through big with her 2nd triple of the game to tie the game. Clark tried to score on a passed ball to take the lead and was surprisingly out on a collision at the plate with her Franklin. Both teams went scoreless until the bottom of the 7th with 2 outs and a runner on 1st for the Patriots, their 3 hole hitter hit a bomb to deep left center that Clark tracked well through a tough wind barely missing off her outstretched glove. She hit McDonald on a relay, but the runner just beat the throw to seal the game for Union County. Both Pitchers gave up 5 hits, with Fowler also striking out 6.. Although it was a loss on the scoreboard, this was a very encouraging game for the Lady Panthers who had had a couple rough games defensively recently. They will look to build on this sound effort vs Rushville Wednesday at Home and Morristown Thursday at Home as well.
