Lady Knights go 3-1 in LKC action on the week

By Staff | Apr 15, 2009

KEEPING IT IN THE PARK — Sami Jones reaches home plate after hitting a shot to the outfield, allowing her to circle the bases for an inside-the-park home run against the Doddridge County Bulldogs as umpire Bruce Crawford looks on.

The Lady Knights recorded a strong week during their four games played, winning three including a doubleheader on Monday against Doddridge County.

However, Tyler Consolidated opened the week with a home contest against Parkersburg Catholic to start a week full of LKC games.

Senior pitcher Kaitlyn Goudy was too much to handle as she gave up only one hit in an 8-1 win. She retired 13 batters via strikeout.

Tyler Consolidated opened up the game, scoring one run in the first, two in the second, three in the third, and two in the fourth to put the game out of reach for the Crusaderettes, who scored their only run in the top of the sixth.

The Silver Knights’ offense only had four hits, but took advantage of six walks and four errors on behalf of Parkersburg Catholic.

Sisters Sami and Christy Jones both doubled while sisters Keri and Heather Suter batted in runs. Kayla Fisher and Mallory Hammond also recorded RBIs for the Silver Knights.


In their second LKC outing, the Lady Knights welcomed the Ritchie County Lady Rebels, but they made themselves feel too much at home and returned to Ellenboro with an 11-0 decision in seven innings.

For the first two innings, things went well for the Lady Knights as they held the Rebels scoreless while playing solid defense. Once the third inning started, it was a different story.

That’s when Ritchie County first lit up the scoreboard with three runs, followed by a fourth run in the fourth and fifth in the fifth.

Tyler Consolidated held them scoreless in the sixth, but the barrage continued in the seventh with six runs.

Most of the runs were aided by errors by the Lady Silver Knights, which totaled eight in all.

Goudy registered seven strikeouts for the Knights while picking up the loss.

Coach Charlene Galluzzo’s team returned to their winning ways with a sweep over the Lady Bulldogs in a rare Monday doubleheader at Kidwell.

In the first game, it was all Tyler Consolidated on the pitching of Kaitlyn Goudy who went the distance in a complete game, three-hit shutout. She also reached double digits with strikeouts, sitting down 10.

Offense came by way of Christy Jones, Shaylee Dawson, and Heather Lynch, all of whom had singles and an RBI.

In the nightcap, the teams switched rolls as Doddridge County was designated as the home team. It didn’t help matters too much as the Lady Silver Knights still won via mercy-rule decision.

Tyler Consolidated opened up with five runs in the first inning and four runs in each of the third, fourth and fifth innings.

Doddridge County scored three in the first and one of each of the next two innings, but they couldn’t generate any more offense after that as Goudy came on in relief of Heather Suter and shut down the Bulldogs arsenal.

Suter struckout three and earned the win and Goudy fanned seven to record the save.

The speedy Sami Jones had an impressive game with an inside-the-park home run paired with a single, combining for three RBIs.

Christy Jones singled and doubled and Goudy added two singles with an RBI. Amanda Goodfellow singled for two RBIs. Heather Suter, Rachel Yoho, and Fisher all recorded a single and an RBI a piece.

This week Tyler Consolidated’s Lady Knights will attempt to continue the success against Cameron on Thursday before visiting Ellenboro to compete in the Ritchie County tournament on Saturday.
