Lady Tigers Take Third At Schuyler County Tourney
A little bump in the middle of the road kept the SCR-I softball team from competing for a title at the Schuyler County varsity softball tourney on Saturday, September 27 in Queen City.
The Lady Tigers opened the event with a big 14-4 win over Novinger.
Rebecca Consbrock took the mound for SCR-I and improved her record to 2-0 on the year. She allowed four runs on six hits over six innings of work. She also struck out four batters.
The junior did the job with the bat as well going 3-4 in the contest, scoring three times and driving in four runs.
Katie Schneider was 3-4 and added three RBI while Sara Eggleston crossed the plate three times for SCR-I.
The bump in the road proved to be Schuyler County in game two as the always tough Rams beat Scotland County 3-2 in a mild upset.
The SCR-I offense went south for the game. The Lady Tigers scored in the fourth inning courtesy of the legs of Ali Fromm. The sophomore reached base on a hit and came around to score without the benefit of another Lady Tiger even reaching base.
The Rams went ahead in the fifth inning taking advantage of two SCR-I fielding errors to score two unearned runs.
Scotland County mounted a late rally that just fell short. Valerie Crawford singled in the teamís final at bat. She scored on a hit by Consbrock but SCR-I could not push across the tying run.
SCR-I still brought home a trophy courtesy of a 5-0 win over Milan in the third place game.
Eggleston blanked the Wildcats over seven innings on just two hits and no walks while striking out seven.
Crawford drove in three runs for the winners while Eggleston and Consbrock had the other RBI.
