GLASGOW — Saturday morning, in a showcase game, the Lady Scotties lost a softball game to Christian County. The Lady Colonels, one of the top-rated teams in Kentucky, put the ball in play often to get by Glasgow 7-1.
“Christian County ... has a very good ball club. They are well coached and fundamentally sound. Their pitchers weren't over powering just solid," Glasgow head coach Steven Murphy said. "They kept us off stride all day long and when we put it in play, they made the plays against us. The difference in the game was their pitchers were able to do a little bit better job keeping us off balance than were we able to do to them.”
The Lady Colonels were able to put three runs on the board in the first. They used singles by Lacie Mohon, Emmy Blane, Halle Hendricks and their starting pitcher, Alexis Sumner, to score the runs.
Glasgow got their lone run when Bailey Alexander hit a ball over the leftfield fence.
“It's the second time this year Bailey has led off a game with a home run. I thought it might energize us to have a really good offensive day,” said Murphy.
Christian County added a fourth run when Kristen Adcock led off the second inning with a double. She was moved to second with a sacrifice bunt and plated with a sacrifice fly by Hannah Bradshaw.
The Lady Colonels scored two runs in the fourth. They used three singles and a fielder's choice to plate the runs. Christian County scored their seventh run in the fifth inning on one-out singles by Jennalyn Kelley, relief pitcher Regan Hancock and Adcock to score Kelley. Glasgow's rightfielder, Katie Hinkley, made a running catch down the foul line for the second out before Dugger induced Bradshaw to ground back to her for the final out of the inning, minimizing the damage.
