WOODVILLE – Marlie Hargon, Olivia Navarro and Emery Cate Lewis combined to kick off a draw as Cathedral High School Lady Green Wave defeated Wilkinson County Christian Academy Lady Rams 9-0 in a game of four innings last Tuesday night.
Hargon was the winning pitcher after playing the first two innings. She struck out two batters and walked only one batter. Navarro came in and hit the side late in the third inning. Lewis threw the bottom of the fourth and pulled one out.
“I was really happy with our pitch. Marlie pitched two good innings. Olivia and EC pitched an inning each, ”Cathedral head coach Craig Beesley said.
The Lady Green Wave scored a run at the start of the first set before putting the game aside with three runs at the start of the second set and five runs at the start of the third. They had just four hits as a team, but took advantage of several bases on balls.
“We took advantage of a few walks. We got some hits when we had runners on base and that’s how we scored most of our nine points, ”Beesley said.
Hargon helped his own cause by going 1v2 with two runners produced. Kinslee Young continued his impressive batting season, going 1 to 1 with a triple and a RBI. Liza Gregg was 1 to 1 with an RBI and Lily Crum was 1 to 1.
Cathedral (6-2) hosted Centerville Academy on Thursday afternoon and looked to extend their five-game winning streak.
