Lady Warriors blank Model, 10-0

Somerset — Southwestern softball head coach Jim Woodall feels like his team his hitting their side at the right time of the year.

With the performance his Lady Warriors had in a six-inning, 10-0 win over Model on Tuesday evening at the War Path, most would probably agree with the veteran coach.

The Lady Warriors hit the ball, played good defense, and had a nice pitching performance from Sydney ‘Dozer’ Fourman, which allowed the ladies in blue and orange to run away from the visiting Model Lady Patriots, upping their record to 19-6 on the year.

Woodall was more than thrilled to see his team hitting on all cylinders in the ten-run victory over Model.

“I thought the team did awesome – what they put on the board tonight, I sure didn’t have anything to do with it, because I made some bone-headed calls,” told Woodall. “I thought the girls hit the ball well, and I thought Dozer pitched a heck of a game for us. She’s getting into her groove at the end of the year, which is a good thing. We are starting to hit the ball much better after having a dry-spell for a while. Our defense played good tonight, as well.”

After garnering one run in the first inning, the Lady Warriors plated four runs in the second frame to jump out to a 5-0 advantage over the Lady Patriots. Five different players – Hope Bruner, Destiny Molden, Sarah Smith, Shantelle Woodall, and Gillian Gibson – all had singles in the four-run inning.

In the third inning, the Lady Warriors took advantage of two Model errors to score three more runs to up their lead eight runs at 8-0. Southwestern had a pair of RBI hits in the inning from Gibson (single) and Venable (double).

The ninth and tenth runs of the game would both be because of the bat from Angel Beasley. In the sixth inning, Molden gave Southwestern a 9-0 lead after scoring on a sacrifice from Beasley. The Lady Warriors tallied their tenth and final run of the game after Megan Burchett scored on contact from Beasley.

Fourman, who pitched all seven innings for Southwestern, earned the victory. In the shutout win, the junior gave up three hits and struck out ten Model batters.

At the dish, Southwestern was led by the bat of Gibson and Molden, who each finished with two hits and two RBI’s. Venable had two RBI’s and a double in the victory.

Southwestern, who has the second-best record in the 12th Region, will square-off with the top team in the region tonight – Garrard County. Tonight’s contest is set to get underway at 6 p.m. at the War Path.
