|FC turns defensive struggle into a blowout in Sectional 16 Championship|
The better part of the Class 4A Sectional 16 championship featuring Floyd Central taking on BNL was a defensive struggle.
Eventually the Lady Highlanders’ bats came alive and they cruised in the final innings to an easy 8-0 win over the Lady Stars.
BNL looked to score early when they put runners on second and third with no one out in the third.
Kassie King pitched her way out that jam by striking out the next three BNL batters she faced.
Offensively, FC got the only run they’d need in the bottom of the first inning when they scored thanks to a sacrafice fly off the bat of Jenna Endris.
Floyd Centrals lead grew to 2-0 when Endris roped a double to the outfield.
From there the Lady Highlanders piled on.
King struck out nine Bedford batters, five through the first two innings while her team’s offense built it’s lead.
FC has won 25 straight and is 28-3 heading into Tuesday’s one-game regional.
The Lady Highlanders played in the regional championship Tuesday results from that game were unavailable at press time but will appear in the June 8 issue of The Banner Gazette.
