McIntyre, Wildcats Blank Lumberjills
The Wildcat bats came alive in the first inning on March 26 as the Paden City softball team scored eight runs on their way to an 11-0 shutout of the Lumberjills. The play resulted in a three-inning mercy-rule victory.
Paden City freshman Erin McIntyre worked the mound for the Wildcats, giving up only one hit, with a strikeout and no walks. Junior standout Hannah Loy led the way for the Paden City girls with three singles while knocking in two runs. Caitlin Stewart also got two RBIs as she contributed two singles. Hope Cooper knocked in two runs with two singles, and Jenna Ferrebee added two hits.
The Wildcats finished with 13 hits on the night and ended with only one error. Valley had 10 errors in the contest which led to four Wildcat runs. Paden City now stands at 3-6 on the season.
“We have really been getting the bat on the ball and scoring a lot of runs, and of course that wins games. We have also been fielding well, and as a result we are getting put-outs. Erin McIntrye has been terrific on the mound the past few games, and it’s something she is working hard at,” said Coach Chris Neff.
