GRAFTON— The TCMS Lady Knights Softball team hosted the Lady Bulldogs from Doddridge County this past week on May 11.
The last couple of games have seen the Lady Knights struggling to maintain an offense, this game would be much different.
The first inning would see the Lady Bulldogs on top with a 2-0 score. As the second inning began the Knights would start to find their stride as the bottom of the batting began to show some life with hits from each one in the lineup.
The Knights answered back adding two runs of their own brining the score to 2-2 at the end of the second inning.
The third and fourth innings would be quiet for the Lady Knights as the Lady Bulldogs start to pull away at the end of the fourth as the score would settle in at 9-2.
The fifth inning would see the Lady Bulldogs increase their lead and trying to end the game early, but the bottom of the fifth would see the Lady Knights add a couple more runs to the board.
The Lady Knights would also suffer an injury to starting third baseman Karigan Wildroudt in what is possibly a season ending injury to her hip as she was removed from the field and taken to the hospital.
The game would end early at the bottom of the sixth inning as the Lady Bulldogs secured enough runs to cause the Knights to tap out early with a final score of 13-5.
The Lady Knights was in action again on May 13th against the Lady Bees of Elkins. We will provide coverage at a later date.
The staff of the Mountain Statesman would like to wish Karigan Wildroudt a speedy recovery.
