The Lady Wolverines battled the breeze at Nikki Jones Memorial Field as they took on Calhoun City March 25 but despite the weather conditions, they Lady Wolves came down with a decisive 14-2 win.
Coach Lee Berryhill was pleased with his team’s effort.
“We played a good, solid team and came away with a win,” Berryhill said. “I like to see that intensity every game and the team has delivered.”
As the Wolverines know and the Lady Tigers found out, sustained delivery is crucial in every aspect of the word.
Calhoun City started hot as Adaysia Edwards singled and made it to third on an error to start the first inning. She would score on Courtney Norman’s single to right and Alica Feliciano scored a run from third to make it a 2-0 ball game.
But the Lady Wolves responded quickly, tying the game at 2-all in the bottom of the inning.
Autumm Frost singled to center and Mamie Hollenhead and Bailie Springfield scored after the ball was overthrown.
East Webster kept the momentum going and held the Tigers in the second and third innings. The they started a forward push putting up another five runs on five hits making it a 7-2 game in the Lady Wolves’ favor.
And they didn’t stop there adding another seven runs to seal the deal and give the East Webster the 14-2 win.
The Wolverine’s picked up another win Thursday as they bested Winona.
