Nice Win, Nice Win!

Updated on April 22, 2015

Getting the Sign

The Forbush softball team currently sits at 6-0 in the conference with two conference games upcoming this week (@North Surry, @West Stokes). Last Friday, the Falcons defeated the Greyhounds of North Surry in five innings by a score of 11-0. On Tuesday, the Falcons equaled that task with a convincing 11-0 victory over the Wildcats of West Stokes. In both games, Sydney Miller was able to pitch shutouts by working out of one or two jams.

Offensively, the Falcons jumped on both teams early and often. Against the Greyhounds, Forbush scored two runs in the first inning and six runs in the second inning before closing out North Surry in the fifth. Logan Wood led the way with a home run and 3 RBIs. Her partner in crime, Allison Mitchell, also had a home run and 3 RBIs. Miller pitched all five innings, striking out six batters with only one walk.

In Tuesday's game against the Wildcats the atmosphere was a little different. West Stokes entered the game with a 5-1 record in the conference with its lone loss to the Greyhounds of North Surry. Essentially, this game would either tighten up the race for the conference title or put the Falcons in a commanding spot down the stretch.

Sydney Miller set the Wildcats down in order in the top of the first inning. In the bottom half, the Falcons introduced another weapon to the conference in the form of senior, Mallory Choplin. Mitchell led off with a walk. Mallory Choplin's sacrifice turned into second and third with no outs. Wooten's sacrifice fly plated Mitchell, and without a hit the Falcons took the 1-0 lead. Choplin made it home later on a wild pitch to make the score 2-0 after one inning. Manufacturing runs with speed and pressure.

Miller struck out the side in the top of the 2nd inning. The Falcons batted around in the bottom half of the inning, scoring four more runs to increase its lead to 6-0. Kelsey Swaim got it started with a line drive single to right field. Mitchell followed with a single to center, and Choplin walked to load the bases. Wooten dumped a ball over the second baseman's head for a single to score Swaim, and Wood emptied the bases with a double to right.

Miller got into trouble in the top of the 3rd inning as a potential double-play ball was thrown into center field to put runners on second and third with only out. However, Miller was able to regroup and get the final two outs to avoid giving up the run.

The Falcons added three more runs in the bottom of the fourth capped off by a single by Lineberry to extend the lead to 9-0; one short of setting up an early ending in the top of the 5th. Not getting the tenth run in the bottom of the fourth inning worked out great for Miller as she was able to get that final at-bat in the bottom of the 5th. With two outs and a runner on base, Miller drove a ball deep over the center field fence for a walk-off homer.

Falcons win, again!
