H.S. SOFTBALL: Central falls at South Laurel

RICHMOND — Defensive miscues once again turned out to be very costly for the Madison Central softball team.

The Lady Indians (6-9) committed six errors and suffered a 4-1 loss Thursday to South Laurel in London. Central only allowed one earned run, but the Lady Cardinals scored three unearned runs in the fifth inning.

MacKenzie Wilder went the distance for the Lady Indians in the circle and allowed only four hits, including a home run by Megan Smith in the fourth inning.

Samantha Walzyk was two-for-three and drove in Central’s only run.

Summer Fleeman was hit by a pitch, pinch-runner Joelee Hightower stole second and Walzyk followed with an RBI double.

Central is set to return to action today at Ludlow.

North Laurel 2, Southern 1

The Lady Eagles had their chances, but couldn’t come up with the clutch hits and a big moments.

Madison Southern had the tying and winning runs on base in the seventh inning, still North Laurel held on for a 2-1 victory in Berea.

“Our situational hitting right now is terrible,” Southern coach Brian Foley said. “It’s not that we can’t get people on. Until that gets better, against good teams we are going to end up on the short end of the stick.”

Southern (12-6) had runners at second and third with no outs in the first and couldn’t push across a run. In the seventh, the Lady Eagles had the bases loaded with one out and were unable to tie the game.

Southern scored its only run in the fifth. Paige King singled and scored on a Briana Lanham single.

Bethany Mays was 2-for-4 to lead the Lady Eagles’ offense.

Southern is set to return to action today against Garrard County in the Jaguar Classic at East Jessamine High School.

Southwestern 10, Berea 0

The Lady Pirates suffered a 10-0, five-inning loss at home Thursday to Southwestern.

Berea (2-10) is set to return to action today at Williamsburg.
