Lady Lions put two over in 3-1 home win
By Jesse Lamar
Sports Reporter
HALEYVILLE  -  Coming off a tough loss from the Winfield Lady Pirates, the Haleyville Lady Lions kept their heads up and pulled out a solid 3-1 win over the Lawrence County Lady Red Devils Tuesday, April 15.
Senior right hander Holly Ward was the only Lady Lion that stood in the circle, delivering six strikeouts, and only allowing three hits throughout seven innings. The Lions managed two homeruns through the game, Payten Townsend drove on over in the borrom of the third and Ward knocked over another in the bottom of the sixth.
The Red Devils were unable to get anything rolling in the top of the first. Ward struck two out and the outfield took care of the other to bring the Lion’s defense off the field. Townsend started off with a single to get things rolling for Haleyville. AB Lowe advanced Townsend to second with a sacrifice bunt. Perri Gilbert almost brought Townsend across with a single, but a throw from the Red Devil’s outfield beat Townsend back to the plate counting for the second out on the Lions. Ward counted as the third out after a pop fly.
Another short inning from the Devils brought the Lions back to the batter’s box. Anna Laine Godsey was the first out after swinging on three pitches counting for a strikeout. Tori Pendley met the same fate three pitches later. Macy West made contact but was tagged out at first ending the inning with no points on the board.
The Lions took the lead in the bottom of the third with Townsend’s solo homerun. In the top of the fourth the Red Devils tied the score after an error from Haleyville’s defense that allowed a runner enough time to come across home from third base.
Haleyville used a two run inning in the bottom of the sixth to take the lead that ultimately led to winning them the ballgame. Townsend started off the inning with a single before stealing second then making her way to third. Lowe stood in the box for a handful of pitches before eventually striking out. A wild pitch got away from the catcher which bought Townsend enough time to steal home giving the Lions the lead. Gilbert counted as the second out after three strikes. Ward added another point to the board with a solo home run giving the Lions a 3-1 lead that they would carry through the top of the seventh sealing the win.
With the win the Lady Lions now hold a record of 21-12, and are currently ranked third in class 4A softball.
