Lawrenceville 9, Red Hill 4
Early season county rivalry goes to LHS
LAWRENCEVILLE - Lawrenceville High School's softball team did all of its damage early Thursday, as it rolled to a 9-4 win over rival Red Hill at Phil Alsman Memorial Field.

The Indians (1-1) sent nine hitters to the plate in the opening inning and 11 to the plate in the second, in the process of building a 9-0 lead.

To their credit the Salukis (2-2) did not allow another run, and rallied late to make the score competitive.

The Indians banged out nine hits in the game and took advantage of three errors on the Salukis.

LHS coach Dave Berry says that due to foul weather, the Indians have spent a lot of time practicing inside lately and have been stressing hitting.

"Obviously, our hitting is a little further along than some other parts of our game," Berry said.

LHS freshman pitcher Morgan Parrish did not allow a hit until the sixth inning, and finished with a three-hitter for her first career win. Parrish gave up only one earned run, scattered four walks and registered five strikeouts.

"I thought (Parrish) did a great job," Red Hill coach Amy Moan said. "We made contact with the ball, but we weren't hitting it hard or finding holes. We were hitting it right to people."

Brittany Fiscus started for the Salukis, but did not retire a batter before being lifted. Fiscus allowed hits to all four batters she faced, three of which eventually scored.

Cheyanne Moan took over at that point and pitched the rest of the way. Moan allowed six runs, only one of which was earned, on six hits. She walked three hitters and fanned a pair.

Amerae Miller, Shyloh Hearn and Alicia Wimberly sparked the LHS offense with two hits each. Miller doubled for the game's only extra-base hit and was credited with two RBIs. Hearn had run-scoring base hits up the middle in each of the first two innings and scored twice. Wimberly also came through with run-scoring hits in the first and second innings.

Macey Waggoner added RBI single for the Tribe, while Lindsey Baker singled and scored twice from the leadoff spot. Parrish singled and scored twice, while Heather Miller and Samantha Mason both scored runs.

Red Hill scored its first run in the third inning when Marissa Roark reached on a fielder's choice and eventually came home on an outfield error.

The Salukis didn't have a hit until there were two out in the sixth. Andi Tennis doubled to right, plating Maran Tennis, who had reached on an error. Riley Zollars later singled home Andi Tennis.

Baelee Holloway doubled and Leah Ramsaran singled to account for the other Red Hill hits.

"It's a good win," Berry said. "Red Hill has a good program. A lot of the girls know each other and play summer ball together. It's a rivalry, but it's a nice rivalry, a friendly rivalry. We get along well with their team and coaches and we've had some really good games over the last three or four years."

The Indians will travel to Noble on Monday, while Red Hill plays Thursday at Hutsonville.
