The NCOE Junior High Lady Cardinal softball team ventured to Wayne City Friday afternoon to take on the Lady Braves of Wayne City. The Lady Cardinals wasted little time in this contest as they jumped out to the early 2-0 lead following their first at bat. Wayne City managed to capitalize on some errant fielding by the Lady Cardinals to cut their deficit to one run following one inning of play. Leading 2-1, NCOE came alive again in the second inning to plate four more runs to stretch their lead to 6-1 but Wayne City would answer back in the bottom half to score two runs of their own to narrow the gap to 6-3. The Lady Cardinals would use a two run third inning along with a seven run fourth inning to push the score out to 15-3. Now in control, the remainder of the contest would witness NCOE scoring five more runs to just two for the Lady Braves as the Lady Cardinals cruised to the 20-5 short game victory.
Leading the offense for the Lady Cardinals was Mallory Fulkerson, Carmyn Daugherty, and Lauren Poole as each knocked out two hits in the game. Those with one hit were Mercedes Hise, Avery Black, Alivia Zenner, and Sydnee Sauls. Scoring runs for NCOE were Mallory Hobbs (3), Cadee Humphrey (2), Elise Hortin (2), Poole (2), Hise (2), Daugherty (2), Trinity Boyd (1), Fulkerson (1), Cora Humphrey (1), Black (1), Zenner (1), and Sauls (1). Mercedes Hise and Lauren Poole were credited with two RBI's while Mallory Fulkerson, Carmyn Daugherty, and Alivia Zenner added one each.
Starting pitcher, Mercedes Hise pitched the first three innings allowing three runs (two earned) on no hits while striking out eight. Avery Black hurled the final two innings allowing two run on two hits and striking out three.
