Lady Eagles 10-run Leo in 5 innings, 15-4
Columbia Cityâ€™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 runnerâ€™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 fiveâ€“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.
