Softball Team Continues Extra Inning Heroics With Second 11th Inning Win

Two days after a tough loss to the Cougars in the Knox County Tournament, Scotland County traveled to Highland and avenged the defeat with a 1-0 win in 11 innings September 9.

The teams locked horns in a pitching dual between Sara Eggleston and Highland's sophomore hurler Larraleigh Kraft.

Highland looked poised to put some runs on the board early, with three base runners in the first inning and two more in the Cougars' second at bat. Eggleston pitched out of the trouble and settled down after that, allowing just three more baserunners total over the next nine innings of work.

The defense picked up the slack for SCR-I as well led by shortstop Meagan Fromm who recorded 10 assists during the game.

"Our defense has been much improved all year," said coach Terri Slaughter. "It was excellent in this game especially Meagan who was getting to everything and making the plays. But even when we do make an error the team has been really good about putting it behind us and concentrating on making the next out."

Highland's defense was not as fortunate as a miscue cost the Cougars the game in the 11th inning.

With two outs Amy Blomme singled. She stole second base and the throw from the catcher sailed over the shortstop. As Blomme advanced to third the ball got by the centerfielder and allowed the Lady Tigers baserunner to make it home.

Blomme was 2-5 to lead the SCR-I offense. Fromm and Becky Miller both were 1-5 to account for Scotland County's only four hits on the evening.

Eggleston pitched all 11 innings to improve her record to 4-2. She allowed just four hits and walked two while striking out eight.
