Neither team got on the board in the first inning as defense played a heavy role on both sides.

Morgan got heated and quickly showed her arm strength and struck out two batters in the second inning that left Clinton scoreless.

Jenn Smith got things rolling with a smooth hit and she would eventually score from a wild pitch. Lola Crozier would be the next batter to respond with a solid hit right before Kennedi McKay got a double as Tyra Bridges got the run score. WC ended the inning by going up by three after Zion Harvey scored off a passed ball.

The Lady Arrows would get on the board in the third after a triple from Cooley and a hit by Bibb to put the score at 3-2. That would would only piss Morgan off even more as she sent the final batter back to the dugout with a strikeout.

Adalyn Anderson would heat the game up some more with a single in the fourth along with a RBI from McKay. Harvey would get a steal at home right before Mary Evelyn Hossley got a RBI to put the score at 5-2 at the end of the fourth.

A double play in the fifth by WC would keep the Lady Vikes on top of things while Karel and Harvey both collected a hit but the score remained at 5-2 heading into the sixth.

After a good catch by Makayla Jackson, Morgan put the game away with two final strikeouts as WC won the game.

“I feel like the bats came out today and the defense got a whole lot better and I’m pretty confident about our upcoming game against Florence,” Smith said.

Morgan ended the night on a good note by striking out nine batters and only allowing two hits.

“We did really good tonight and we made some key defensive plays,” Morgan said. When asked about what sparked her performance Morgan said “I feel like when someone gets a hit off me I don’t look down on it and I think of it as I know I’m going to get the next girl out.”

Crozier, Harvey, Kayleigh Karel and Anderson all had hits as well as McKay who had two RBIs.

“We came out ready to play and we were aggressive and hit the ball good,” McKay said.

WC will travel to Florence on Thursday.
