Lady Falcons Open Conference with Win

Updated on March 25, 2015



Lady Falcons Have Depth on Offense

The Lady Falcons and the Lady Sauras emptied their benches on Tuesday night in the fifth inning as the game was completely in hand by the Falcons. Unfortunately for the Sauras, the Falcon bench brought their own bats to the game.

Olivia Wingler, Briana Hinshaw and Madison Coe each contributed hits as the Falcon bench pushed across six more runs in the rout. Briana Hinshaw had two singles in the seventh as the Falcons batted around. Olivia Wingler and Madison Coe also singled as the Sauras could not stop the bleeding.

On the night, Hinshaw was 2 for 3 with 2 RBIs. Madison Coe was 1 for 1 and Olivia Wingler was 1 for 3.

This trio was a combined 4 for 7 on the night with 2 RBIs. Compare that to the 3, 4 and 5 batters for the Falcons that were 3 for 13 with 4 RBIs. Not very hopeful figures for the opposition. Also, a little misleading since the 3, 4 and 5 batters reached based four times as a result of errors.


Falcons Continue to Build

In the past two games, Allison Mitchell has been on a tear at the plate. Mitchell is four for her last six with a home run and two doubles. It was Mitchell that got the Falcons started on Tuesday night as she lined the first pitch of the game right back up the middle for a single.

After Yale reached on an error, Wooten moved the runners over to second and third for Logan Wood. With only one out and first base open, South tried to keep the ball away for Wood, but one pitch got a little to close to the plate. Wood blasted the ball over the right field fence and into the netting of the batting cage to give the Falcons a 3-0 lead. Not to be outdone, Sydney Miller followed with a solo shot to center field to round out the scoring for the first inning. The Falcons batted around in the inning, scoring four runs.

The Sauras squandered an opportunity to cut into the lead in the bottom of the first inning as Autumn Miller was left on base after a leadoff double.

The second inning looked much like the first as Allison Mitchell drilled another pitch back up the middle. This time, Yale doubled to center field to score Mitchell. Wood drew a walk and Miller reached on an error, scoring Yale. Shore brought in the third run of the inning with a single to center. At the end of two innings the Falcons led 7-0.

The Falcons and Sauras were both quiet through the third and fourth innings. The Falcons started a two-out rally in the top of the fifth. Olivia Wingler , batting in the 9th spot, led off with a single. Allison Mitchell followed with her fourth hit of the game. The double put runners in scoring position for Savannah Yale. Yale doubled to the other side of the field to score Wingler and Mitchell. Wooten joined the parade as she doubled Yale home to make the score 10-0. Three outs away from victory, the Falcons conceded a run in the bottom of the fifth as Katie Manring scored the Sauras first and only run of the game.

The Falcons would add six runs in the top of the seventh to close out the Sauras for the first conference win of the season. Sydney Miller got the win as she scattered seven hits over seven innings.

Savannah Yale
2 for 4 - 2B (2)
Kayla Shore
2 for 3
Briana Hinshaw

Tough Out

Mitchell has been a tough out for teams lately. Her ability to get on base has set the table for the heart of the order. When all of the Falcons hit on the same day it will be a sight for the ages.

Logan Wood and Savannah Yale combined for 6 RBIs in the game against South Stokes. These two are clutch performers with runners in scoring position.
