The Edmonson County Lady Cat Softball team faced the Cumberland County Lady Panthers for the senior night match-up at home. There was an ongoing pitcher-duel the majority of the game, which included no hitters from both pitchers until Edmonson County's Brooklyn Wilson broke it up for the first base hit of the game in the bottom of the third. Edmonson scored the first run of the night in the same inning after a sac bunt from 8th grader Addie Childress, and then a single by Annie Kiper.
The Lady Panthers answered in the fourth with back-to-back hits on a double and a single. After a sac fly to center, they got on the board 1-1. They scored again on a Lady Cat error in the infield to take a 2-1 lead.
The Lady Cats defense in the outfield and at first base caused some problems for the Lady Panthers in the fifth inning, who did not score again. Edmonson stepped up to the plate with big hits from junior Makayla Hogg, freshman Jolee Vincent, and a two-run homer from 8th grader Addie Childress - which secured the win for Edmonson. It was Childress' third of the season, and a two-run shot.
Cumberland County did not score again in the top of the seventh, resulting in a 5-2 Lady Cat win.
Wilson was 3-3 on the night with 1 RBI and Childress went 2-3 with 3 RBIs. Kiper, Hogg, Vincent, and Alyssa Doyle were all 1-3 on the evening.
Pitcher Julie Norris went 7 innings, giving up one earned run on 4 hits, walked none, and struck out two.
Four seniors were honored at the senior night game, Alyssa Doyle, Annier Kiper, Callie Webb, and team manager Karina Dennison.
Edmonson County is now 15-9 on the season. They are scheduled to play Monroe County at home tonight at 6PM; however, rain in the forecast could be a factor.
The Lady Cats are also scheduled to play Grayson County at home on Tuesday in the first round of the District 12 tournament, hosted at home in Edmonson County.
