Falcons Sweep Sauras

Updated on April 3, 2015

The Lady Falcons have started off the conference season with a bang, scoring 22 runs in its first two games to take a commanding lead on the rest of the WPAC. Both wins have been against the Sauras of South Stokes which was the only blemish on the Falcons' conference schedule last season. The new conference schedule pairs conference opponents in back-to-back games. Now that Forbush has beaten the Sauras twice, the teams will not meet each other again until potentially the conference tournament. A bit odd, but that is the conference rule.

On Tuesday in East Bend, Sydney Miller took the mound for the Falcons with the task of shutting the Sauras down for a second time in a week. The Sauras, on the other hand were looking to slow down the offense of the Falcons that put up 16 runs in the first meeting.

The Falcons got on the board early once again with two runs in the bottom of the 1st inning. Allison Mitchell continued her hot streak with a lead-off single to right field. Yale followed with a walk, and Wooten singled to load the bases. With one out, Sydney Miller drew a bases loaded walk to plate Mitchell. Marissa LIneberry followed with a pop-up down the right field line that turned into a sacrifice fly as Wooten scampered home.

Forbush was at it again in the bottom of the 2nd inning. Kelsey Swaim got things started with a single to right field. Hunter reached on an error and Mitchell moved the runners to 2nd and 3rd with her first out in six at-bats against the Sauras. Yale got an RBI with a groundout, and Taylor Wooten doubled to left-center to give the Falcons a 4-0 lead.

Four runs was more than Miller would need as she scattered four hits over seven innings with zero runs allowed. She also struck out nine batters without any walks to get the win.

Marissa Lineberry added an insurance run for the Falcons in the 5th inning as she doubled home Logan Wood. Allison Mitchell singled home Kelsey Swaim in the bottom of the 6th to round out the scoring for the Falcons.

Just Laugh

Taylor Wooten made the play of the game on a grounder up the middle. She dove to snag the sharp grounder, and then had the arm strength to gun the runner out at first base. Pictured above is a different story all together as Taylor sits in the dirt laughing at herself for tripping over the bag during warmups.

Leading Hitters

Allison Mitchell
3 for 4, 2B
Kelsey Swaim
2 for 3, 2B
Taylor Wooten
2 for 4, 2B
Logan Wood
2 for 3


Allison Mitchell is one player that will not get invited to any parties in Stokes county. She completely owned the Saura pitching, going 7 for 8 with two doubles, an RBI and three runs scored.

Play Ball!

Mallory Choplin continues to support her team even though it is killing her to not be on the field. She has maintained a positive outlook ever since a broken finger took her out of the lineup during a pre-season scrimmage. The Falcons boast a powerful lineup that will run on all cylinders when Choplin returns.
