“We played a solid five innings tonight, we are heading in the right direction,” said FCHS head coach Aimee McCall.
With the score tied at two, PHS grabbed the lead for good in the fourth inning. The Indians sendt eight batters to the plate and twice loading the bases. Fluco pitcher Lexie Scott limited the damage and only gave up two runs.
Powhatan would score two more in both the fifth and sixth innings.
FCHS struck first after Ashleigh Harris lead the game off with a double off the top of the wall. Mindy Lawson sacrificed her to third. Brooke Herndon walked then Bri Harris was a courtesy runner and stole second. Taylor Beck’s well placed single scored Ashleigh and moved Bri to first. It was the only run FCHS scored in the frame.
The Indians added two runs in the bottom of the first.
Fluvanna would tie in the game in the second after Kasandra Noraas lead the inning off with a single. She was sacrificed to second by Scott then to third on the Kiersten Allen single. Noraas would score on a wild pitch.
The Flucos do advance to the Region II tournament next week. Fluvanna will play at Faquier on Tuesday.
“We came in confident, pretty fired up. We knew we had a job to do but we also knew our goal was Tuesday and today was just another practice. We wanted to win but our hearts aren’t broken. We are ready for Tuesday we are ready for Tuesday,” said McCall.
