Falcons Finish off Furies in Five

Updated on March 19, 2015


The Forbush softball team got off to a slow start in Wednesday's matchup against the Furies of Forsyth Country Day, but more than made up for it with seven runs in the home half of the third inning.

Over the first two innings, Sydney Miller had no trouble with the Fury lineup as she struck out three of the first six batters, and didn't allow a ball out of the infield. The only problem was that the Lady Falcons could only manage one run over the same two innings. Both innings, the Falcons had the bases loaded with one out, but left six runners on base.

Sydney ran into a little trouble in the top of the third inning against the bottom of the Fury order. After allowing a leadoff walk, Sydney gave up back-to-back hits to the eight and nine batters to knot the score at one apiece. Sydney retired the next three batters to end the Fury threat.

The bats warmed up for the Falcons in the bottom of the third inning as many of the batters had seen the pitcher a couple of times by this point. Logan led off with a double that thankfully didn't hit anyone. Miller followed with a bloop single over the head of the shortstop. Lineberry and Henry followed with walks to force home a run with only one out in the inning. Jessie Hunter lined a single to left. Allison Mitchell and Savannah Yale contributed a double and a triple to chase everyone from the bases. Wooten squeaked out a single to deep short to plate the final run of the inning and make the score 8-1 in favor of the Falcons.

The Falcons tacked on three more runs by the fifth inning to close out the game in five innings. There were several key offensive performances in this game by Falcon hitters, but none more important than the bottom of the order. Jessie Hunter and Savannah Henry managed to go 2 for 3 with a walk, 2 RBIs and 2 runs. With the bottom of the order producing this lineup becomes a nightmare for opposing pitchers.

A little off center, but this is the 2015 Lady Falcons. Keep up the good work ladies.

Close Knit

Wu-Tang Clan or Pleasantville?

Scoring seven runs in one inning allows time for a photo-op. Are these girls the missing members of the Wu-Tang clan or the extras from the movie "Pleasantville?" Wu-Tang is a hard sell considering the combined GPAs of these athletes.


Bomb the Bomber

Allison Mitchell drove the ball over the center field fence for her first home run of the season. Logan Wood celebrated Allison's bomb in her own, special way.
