Lady Eagles 10-run Leo in 5 innings, 15-4

May 8, 2014

Columbia City’s double-play attempt against Leo Wednesday night. Second baseman Allie Vodde flips the ball to shortstop Morgan Bales who throws the ball to first base over the Leo runner’s head.

The Columbia City Lady Eagle softball team unleashed an offensive barrage on Northeast Hoosier Conference foe New Haven, pounding out 18 hits on their way to a resounding five–inning 15-4 win in the Wednesday evening contest at Morsches Park.

The visiting Lady Bulldogs got a base runner in the first inning on a dropped third strike, but then the Lady Eagles set the next three New Haven batters down in order.

The Eagles threatened in their half of the first, getting back-to-back singles from Alyssa Hansen and Maddy Hamman, and a walk from Allie Vodde, but a strikeout and a force-out tag-out double-play on a ball hit to third base ended the Columbia City threat.

In the bottom of the second, the Eagles again got a base runner, but two strikeouts stranded Amanda Sands, who had reached on a New Haven error.
