Lady Tigers Finish Second at North Shelby Tourney

Lady Tigers Advance to Tourney Semifinals Behind 20-Run Inning


It took a while to get going on Saturday morning at the North Shelby Tournament, but once the Scotland County bats awoke, there was no stopping them.

The Lady Tigers left the bases loaded in the first inning versus Marion County, before plating single run in the second. Claire Shannan walked and came in to score on a base hit by Katie Howard.

That would have been enough, as Bethany Rader shutout the Mustangs on just two hits, while striking out six.

The SCR-I offense erupted in the third inning, going through the batting order nearly three times en route to a 20 run inning. Randi Slaughter started the onslaught with a base on balls. She stole second base and scored on a base hit by Rader. Miranda Holland then delivered a two-run homer to blow the game open.

But the Lady Tigers didn't stop there. Slaughter added a pair of singles, and scored three runs during the inning. Rader added two more hits, and also crossed the plate three times.

For the game, Howard finished 3-3 with a pair of runs scored. Slaughter was 2-2 with two walks and three runs scored. Rader went 3-4 and Holland was 2-2 with a pair of walks.



SCR-I Pushes By Paris 4-1 to Play In Championship


One bad inning was all it took for Scotland County to take command of Saturday's semifinals matchup versus Paris at the North Shelby Tournament.

The Lady Tigers put four runs on the board in their first at bat despite not recording a base hit. SCR-I took advantage of four walks, a hit batsman and a crucial error to build the 4-0 lead.

That proved to be more than enough offense for Meagan Creek, who mowed down the Coyotes over five innings of work. The senior allowed just two hits and one walk while fanning seven batters. The lone Coyotes tally came in the fourth courtesy of a pair of errors.

Creek was 1-2 at the plate with a double and a walk. Brieanna Priebe was 0-0 with three walks.



Perfect Game Stops SCR-I In Tourney Title Game


Over the past several years Mother Nature has spoiled the North Shelby Tournament for Scotland County's softball team. On Saturday it was Mark Twain's Kenzie Grossman who rained on the Lady Tigers parade.

The opposing hurler tossed a perfect game in the tourney championship to blank SCR-I 5-0. She faced the minimum number of batters, not allowing a hit or walk, while striking out 15.

Mark Twain pulled ahead 2-0 in the bottom of the second inning, taking advantage of a pair of errors to score two unearned runs. The blue and white Lady Tigers from the Clarence Cannon Conference tacked on a run in the third before tallying two more unearned runs in the fourth.

Bethany Rader took the loss on the mound, allowing five runs, one earned, on four hits and two walks while striking out seven.
