LMS softball team splits with Hurricane
by Paul Adkins
The Logan Middle School softball team had a split personality on Monday at Hurricane as the Lady Wolves won one and lost one.
Logan took the first game 4-1 and lost 4-2 in the nightcap.
In the victory, the Lady Wolves’ Kelsey Ward pitched three innings and struck out three. Stefanie Curry then entered the game in the fourth inning and also had three strikeouts.
Ward led the LMS offense as she went 2-for-4 at the plate.
Alison Click, Curry, Chelsea Napier and Hannah Vance all had a hit for the Lady Wolves.
Click scored a run in the first inning. Curry and Ward scored runs in the fourth. Vance then plated one in the sixth.
In the second game, Curry tossed a complete game and struck out six.
“Curry threw a good game. We just couldn’t help her out defensively or offensively,” LMS coach Danielle Dalton said. “We had six errors the second game. We also left eight people on base. You cannot do that and expect to win when playing good teams.”
Lexi Hines was 1-for-3 and scored a run for Logan.
Click, Ward, Ashtyn Hylton and Vance all had hits.
Click scored Logan’s other run in the seventh inning.
“We had a little comeback going in the seventh,” Dalton said. “With two outs Click had a single then Hines had another single. Curry got up and hit a shot at the first baseman and she couldn’t handle it, so we had bases loaded with two outs. Ward came up to hit and was hit by a pitch and Click scored. Napier then put up a good fight at the plate but their pitcher got the best of her. I’m very proud of my girls. They work hard everyday. We’ve got to come back out tomorrow and work on some things and get ready for the rest of the week.”
LMS was scheduled to play at Oceana on Wednesday. Logan then hosts county rival Chapmanville on Friday at 5 p.m. On Saturday, the Lady Wolves go to Ravenswood for an 11 a.m. contest.
