Lady Hornets down South Williamsport

Wellsboro softball team wins first playoff game of the season


by Ed Weaver - May 21, 2015

The Wellsboro Varsity Softball team hosted South Williamsport in the 2nd round of District IV Class AA playoffs on Thursday, May 21.

The game turned out to be a pitchers duel as Wellsboro Freshman Alyssa Yungwirth and South Williamsport’s Anna Steer allowed only 3 hits each on the night.

The game remained scoreless through the third inning. South Williamsport had a chance to score in the top of the 4th on a deep hit to center field, but Wellsboro’s Jenny Young made a perfect throw to Paige Carr to tag the runner out at home preventing the run.

After a scoreless fifth and sixth inning for South, the Lady Hornets came alive in the bottom half of the sixth inning. Alexa Singer picked up her only hit of the night on a single to first base before advancing to second on a Carr sacrifice bunt. Jordan Butters then sent a shot to left field to score Singer for the game’s only run.

The Lady Hornets’ defense held in the top of the seventh as they picked up the 1-0 win. Young, Singer, and Butters were all 1-for-3 on the night, and Yungwirth picked up her 8th win of the year as she pitched a complete game and struck out nine batters.

The win improves the Hornets’ record to 19-2 overall. The team will be back in action on Tuesday, May 26 at 4:00 against Central Columbia at Moser Complex in Watsontown.
