Essex Trojans over CB Lady Drifters

 

Winning in the fast pitch softball lane has been rough for the Lady Drifters lately. After a tough 12-0 shutout District loss to Essex (7-4-1), a 5-0 loss to Northumberland, and 20-0 loss to cross-town rival King George, the latter stages of the season seems to have worn on the now 4-4 Drifters. With a home game against Northern Neck Division-leading Lancaster coming up on Thursday, May 6, the competition will not get any easier.
The deciding factor in the game was pitching. Trojan pitcher Britany Jordan prevented any threat of a Drifter rally throughout the game. She pitched seven shutout innings that yielded 14 strikeouts, two walks and three hits. Drifters pitching ace, Karley Inscoe accumulated six strikeouts, while giving up 12 hits and six walks.

 

 


Leading the way for the Trojans on offense was Molly Muse with a score and two doubles for three RBIs. Muse’s teammate Ebony Tunstall accounted for a triple, two hits and an RBI.
Every member on the Trojan roster experienced some degree of action during the game.
In the top of the second inning, Tunstall began the inning with a triple. She later scored on a scoring error, giving the Trojans a 1-0 lead.
The Trojans picked up two more runs in the third inning from a double by Kendal Tignor and a single by Taylor Glass. Inscoe avoided an early blowout by pitching her way out of the inning with the bases loaded.
In the fifth inning, the Trojans offense picked up three more runs from doubles by Becky Jones and Mary Muse.
Behind 6-0, the Drifters attempted to get their offense on track after Madison Gorfida led off the bottom of the fifth with single. However, she was later thrown out trying to steal second.
In the sixth inning, Essex produced four more runs, courtesy of a triple by Kelsi Baughan, and aggressive Trojan base running. Ahead 10-0 in the top of the seventh inning, the Trojans added two more runs to complete the shutout.
On Monday afternoon, the Drifters defeated King & Queen, 16-5. Colonial Beach returned to form with 20 total hits.
 Results of the Washington & Lee game were not available due to press deadlines.
