Peters Concrete rallies past David's Trophies

By Marvin Birchfield

   It was an all out drag down scrap in the Carter County Softball League on Thursday night, as Peter's Concrete squeaked out a 8-7 victory over David's Trophies, which lasted up to an hour over the scheduled time limit.
   "The girls dug down deep, and it takes a strong heart to do what they did tonight," said Peter's Concrete coach Dean Fields.
   Peter's Concrete grabbed the early lead in the first inning, after Kayla Blevins and KC Partington scored off of walks with bases loaded.
   David's Trophies came back in the top of the second to tie the contest, when a fielder's choice from Dana Williams drove home Brandy Sturgill, and a wild pitch allowed Jacqueline Reece to score.
   Peter's Concrete regained the lead in the bottom of the second, after a single to right-field from Blevins drove-in Jenny Jones, and walks with bases loaded scored Marche Hughes and Blevins.
   With the two-hour time limit coming into effect, David's Trophies was able to tie the game by scoring three runs.
   Reece was hit with a pitch with bases loaded to score Ashley Colbaugh, and a pitch that got away from the catcher enabled Sturgill to come home.
   Also a run was scored when Williams knocked a single to center-field to bring home Amanda Lemmon.
   "Our team played really well, and the last two games I am very proud of them," said David's Trophies coach Mike McCloud.
   Both teams were able to score a couple of runs in the fifth frame, due to throwing errors from each side.
   It looked like David's Trophies were doomed in the sixth frame, after bases were loaded with no outs, but pitcher Kristi Moffitt bailed them out with two strike-outs and a pop-out to first.
   "She had three balls on her, and came back to strike the batter out with a total of eighteen for the game," said McCloud.
   Finally in the seventh frame, Peter's Concrete held on defense, and a mistake from David's Trophies catcher throwing back to the pitcher allowed Nikki Carrow to score the winning run.
   "That's the kind of game that everybody likes to watch, but nobody likes to coach," said Fields.
Game Postponed

   The game between B & R Construction and Miller's Plumbing was postponed for a couple of weeks, due to getting too late of a start.
   The contest came to a halt in the top of the third with bases loaded and no outs.
   B & R Construction has a 1-0 lead, after a single to right-field from Amanda Oaks drove-in Maura Wilson during the third.
