Lady Dawgs win one lose one, now 5-1 on season…
Coach Kenny Horn’s LCHS Lady Dawg softball team made it to both extremes last week winning a 130 shutour against the Belfry Lady Pirates and then losing a 120 matchup with one of West Virginia’s better teams, Lincoln County, 12 – 0;
LC 13 Belfry 0
Sam Fitzpatrick stifled the lay Pirates with a comple game shutout and Addy Frazier and JKristen Caudill led the offense in this lopsided win for LC.
Frazier went 3 for 3 and scored 2 runs while Caudill went 2 for 3 with 2 doubles and 3 rbi.
“We had several players with singles but these two players are the two that made the difference in the game” coach Horn said.
Three Lady Dawg pitchers combined for a no-hitter. Fitzpatrick, who got the start and the win, pitched 3 innings, 6 K’s 1 BB, 0 hits. Tosh Rose pitched 1 inning recording 2 K’s and allowing 0 hits 0 BB and Ciana Bowens pitched 1 inning 2 K’s 0 BB 0 hits.
“I was really pleased the way the way our team came out and were smart at the plate. Kristin Caudill and Addy Frazier really took advantage of their at bats,” Horn said. “Addy is a tough out, when she gets it down good luck throwing her out.”
“Im really excited about Kristin, she had two nice gappers off the top of the fence.” Horn added. “The team is playing really well right now and feel good about what they are doing. the season is young and we have a chance to be a good team. We just need to keep our focus and realize our goals. The pitchers threw a no hitter as a squad. That’s always nice.“
Lincoln County W VA 12 LC 0
A really tough Lincoln Co. squad brought the Lady Dawgs down to earth with a 12-0 shut out win allowing just one hit by LC.
Sam Fitzpatrick’s lead off double was the only hit for the Lady Dawgs who committed six errors and Fitzpatrick gave up 12 hits from the circle..
“This was a tough day. They took it to us in a big way,” coch Kenny Horn said. “This was a nice team and you can’t have 6 errors and expect to be in the game.”
But Horn said the game was a good learning experience for his team (5-1).
“Teams have days like this. We have 30 more games before we start the district tourney and as a coach I could have done a better job making adjustments,” Horn added. “Lincoln County pitchers kept us off balance, and showed us areas we need to improve on. We will get the work done to inprove on the things we need to.”
