Stars top Huskies in non-conference game

Dover — Despite leading 2-0 after three innings Saturday, the Western Boone softball team knew they could be up more on Hamilton Heights after stranding six runners in the first two innings.

They made sure they didn’t do that in the second half of the game. Western Boone scored nine runs in the final three innings and topped Hamilton Heights 12-7 Saturday.

“Hamilton Heights is a very quality team.” Western Boone head coach Mike Vanderpool said. “I have watched their record and saw they have beaten some top ranked teams in 1A and 2A. The first couple of innings, we left a lot of girls on base. We were hitting the ball, but we couldn’t produce any runs. We kept hitting the ball and finally got some runs out of it.”

Western Boone scored in the first on a RBI-single by Kelci Johnson. They added to the lead in the second on an RBI-single by Hannah Williams.

The Stars looked to be in prime position to extend the lead in the third, loading the bases with one out, but Ashley Burns lined into a double play to end the inning and the Stars’ didn’t score.

Lydia Climer retired the first nine batters she faced, but ran into some problems in the fourth.

With a runner on first and two outs, Taylor Rednour and Danielle Leeman hit back-to-back doubles to score two runs. Cayley Higginbotham followed with a single to give the Huskies a 3-2 lead.
