LIZTON- Southmont’s Lady Mounties softball team defeated Tri-West 3-1 in a Conference game Tuesday night.
This game was close if you just look at the scoreboard, but if you go more in depth in the stats you will find that Southmont seemed in control the whole time. Some big hits from players like Avery Hess and Jordan Crist to put the Mounties in scoring position were the difference makers. Hess had two doubles on the night to go 2-for-4 while Crist had one double and went 1-for-3. These players put themselves in the position to score, but seniors Sydney Casteel and Veda Emerson got the hits to bring them home. Casteel hit the team’s first homerun of the season and went 1-for-3 on the night. Emerson went 2-for-3 with an RBI to give Southmont the edge that won them this game.
Paige Knowling was the winning pitcher. She pitched the entire game for Southmont with ten strikeouts.
The Mounties improve their record to 8-2 on the season and 3-2 in the SAC.
