Glasgow girls thump Central, 15-0

GLASGOW — The Glasgow High School Lady Scotties picked up a big win Wednesday night when they knocked off visiting Warren Central 15-0 in softball action.

Glasgow’s offense was impressive as the Lady Scotties batted through the lineup several times throughout the game. GHS scored eight runs in the first two innings and, behind the pitching of Zoie Ross, rolled to the easy victory.

“I was really pleased with the way we swung the bats today. I think we had a total of 21 hits,” said Glasgow coach Steven Murphy. “Our defense was pretty good. We had a couple of plays where we didn’t quite squeeze the ball, but overall I thought we did well.”

The Lady Scotties got on the board early in the first inning. Bailey Alexander singled and went to second on a sacrifice bunt by Jaycie Edwards. Alexander scored on a double by Taylor Williams.

Glasgow pushed its lead to 8-0 with seven runs in the second inning. Riley Alexander reached on an error. Autumn Harlow then reached on a fielder’s choice to force Riley Alexander at second. Ashley Smith followed with a single and Bailey Alexander singled to score Harlow and Smith to make it 3-0.

Jaycie Edwards then reached on an error, which brought in Bailey Alexander, and Haven Hernandez followed with a two-run homer to give the Lady Scotties a 6-0 lead. Glasgow’s final two runs of the inning came on a double by Harlow, scoring Katie Hinkley and Riley Alexander.

Zoie Ross got the win on the mound for Glasgow. She threw a no-hitter, giving up one walk while striking out four.
