H.S. SOFTBALL: Lady Eagles top South Laurel, 4-2

BEREA — The Lady Eagles didn’t take advantage of some very good scoring chances Tuesday against South Laurel.

But, when they needed a hit the most, Morgan Anglin delivered.

The freshman ripped a two-out, two-run double in the bottom of the sixth that scored the winning runs for Madison Southern (19-6) in a 4-2 victory. Anglin was 3-for-4 with a single and a triple, while Tara Bord scattered six hits on the way to picking up a complete-game victory on Senior Day.

“Morgan came up big,” Southern coach Brian Foley said. “A freshman set the tone. We’ve talked about situational hitting all year. Being able to get hits in a timely manner when you really need them. Morgan just stepped up big.”

Southern had a 2-0 in the after three innings, but South Laurel pulled even in the fourth. The Lady Cardinals got three hits in the inning before Bord was able to get out of the jam.

Briana Lanham opened the sixth inning with a single for Southern. After back-to-back outs, freshman Kara Goodin drew a walk. Anglin followed with a shot into the right center field gap that scored both runners.

Bord got South Laurel (26-8) to go down in order in the seventh inning to seal the win.

The Lady Eagles have won five of their past six games.

“Tara pitched a really good game,” Foley said. “And we played well defensively.”

Southern had several other opportunities to push across more runs against South Laurel.

In the first inning, Anglin led off with a triple, but three-straight fly balls left her stranded. The Lady Eagles also had two runners on with only one out in the fifth and couldn’t come up with a clutch hit.

Southern got a run in the second to take the early lead. Jaycee Combs singled and stole second, then scored on an RBI double by Lanham.

In the third, Anglin singled and stole second. Bethany Mays reached on a bunt single and Anglin scored on a groundout by Bord. The Lady Eagles still had two on with only one out, but a pop-up and groundout ended that threat.

Lanham was 2-for-3 and Mays had two hits.

Southern is set to return to action today at Dunbar.
