Woodland softball edged late by Carrollton
The Woodland Lady Cats’ softball team lost its season opener Monday night at home against Carrollton 5-4 on a seventh inning RBI double by the Lady Trojans’ Carlie Monsour.
Monsour drove in Montana Dallas who had reached base on an error earlier in the inning.
Carrollton led 3-1 heading to the Woodland half of the fourth inning when the Lady Cats took the lead with a three-run fourth. The visiting Trojans scored single runs in the fifth and seventh, however, to escape with a one-run Region 7-AAAAA win.
Two of Carrollton’s runs — including the game-winner — were unearned. The Wildcats committed four errors in the contest.
A pair of Carrollton pitchers — Olivia Fannin and Aslinn Spradlin limited Woodland to a single earned run on four hits and four walks.
Lady Cats’ pitcher Sarah Baynard (7 IP, 5R, 3ER, 9H, 3BB, 2K) was tagged with the pitching loss.
Carrollton (3-0, 1-0) out-hit Woodland nine to four. Ansley Barge and Dallas led the Trojans with two hits each.
Madgie Robinson, Bella Carnes, Caroline Higdon, and Ansley Evans had the Woodland base hits — all singles. Audrey Morris had one RBI and Carnes stole a base.
Woodland (0-1, 0-1) plays at Cass Tuesday at 5:55 pm and will host Villa Rica Thursday at 5:55 pm. Both games are Region 7-AAAAA contests.
