Big First Inning "Heels" Hounds

Updated on April 23, 2015

Wooten Appearance

Taylor Wooten picked up her first win on the mound as the Falcons rolled to another WPAC win, 15-4. Allison Mitchell and Logan Wood led the offensive as Forbush used a big first inning to stomp out any ideas the Greyhounds had of avenging an earlier conference loss.

The Falcons started the game off by sending 13 batters to the plate in the first inning to put eight runs on the board. Allison Mitchell got it started with her first of four hits on the evening. Mitchell scalded the second pitch of the game off the top of the fence for a double. Choplin then reached on an error that allowed Mitchell to score. Wood, Miller and Yale added back-to-back singles to score two more runs. Swaim and Mitchell (2nd hit of inning) contributed two more singles to complete the scoring. A total of eight runs were scored on six hits and two errors.

Eight runs would be enough for the Falcons who average less than one run allowed per conference game. Sydney Miller pitched the first inning only, and then gave way to Taylor Wooten who stepped on the mound for the first time this season. Taylor pitched the next six innings, allowing three runs while striking out six batters.

The Falcons had an opportunity to close the door for the night in the fifth inning as the team stretched its lead to 12-1, covering the 10-run rule. Taylor Wooten hit a shot off the fence for a one-out double and Logan Wood smashed a ball into the creek to seemingly put the game on ice. However, the Greyhounds didn't got quietly in their home half of the 5th. Hall, Badgett, Fulk and Tickle all got hits to score three runs and cut the deficit back to only eight runs.

The game continued through the maximum seven innings as everyone got into the game for the Falcons. Briana Hinshaw and Savannah Henry contributed a single and a double, respectively to increase the final margin for the Falcons to eleven runs.

With the win, the Falcons improve to 7-0 in conference play. If the Falcons are able to defeat the Wildcats on Friday in King they will clinch the regular season championship.

JV Falcons 2-1 in Conference

The junior varsity team took another game from the Greyhounds to improve its record to 2-1 in conference play. The only loss the Falcons have incurred in conference was at the hands of the Wildcats of West Stokes in a one-run nail biter this past Tuesday in East Bend.

The Lady Falcons got the lead early, but couldn't hold it as the Greyhounds got a run across to tie the score. It looked a lot like the first meeting between the two teams were the score remained close until the very end. This time, however, the Falcons got the bats going to separate the two teams more decisively.

Alexis Hobson has been a force at the plate for the Falcons over the past two ball games. Against West Stokes, Hobson rattled off three straight hits before the Wildcat pitcher could retire her on a liner back to the mound. Hobson picked up a hot bat again yesterday, driving in a couple of runs to help extend the Falcon lead. Alexis Collins and Lexie Wingler, among others kept the pressure on the Greyhound defense with sharp hits up the middle. Unfortunately for Lexie, she took two balls for the team as she was plunked in back-to-back at-bats.

Caiti Mickles battled an illness through seven innings to get the win, and the Falcon defense stood tall behind her. The win puts the Falcons back in contention for the conference championship as the team travels to West Stokes on Friday. Let's hope the momentum carries the Falcons to victory.
