Anderson County broke an 8-game losing streak when the Lady Bearcats defeated Daviess County 3-1 in the Sports Wearhouse Classic, hosted by Owensboro Catholic.
It was Anderson’s second win over Daviess County this year. The Lady Bearcats also avenged an earlier defeat by beating Henry Clay, but lost to St. Benedict of Tennessee to see their record move to 9-16.
Hopkins County Central had beaten Anderson 5-1 on Friday to extend the program’s losing streak to eight games.
“This was a great weekend for us,” said Anderson coach Brian Glass. “The kids and coaches really had fun. Everyone played hard and got along great. I was pleased with how the girls played overall.”
The Lady Bearcats had only four hits, two by sophomore Jessie Crouch, in the loss to Hopkins County Central. Crouch drove in Corrin Robinson for Anderson’s only run but the defense gave up five unearned runs on two errors in the first two innings before settling down.
Saturday, the Lady Bearcats beat Daviess County, a team they had beaten at Louisville Eastern earlier in the season, 3-1. Robinson had two RBI with a double and Mackenzie Peavler drove in a run with a double.
“Our defense played well and Mackenzie pitched great,” Glass said.
The Lady Bearcats got big revenge on Henry Clay with a 10-2 decision. A week before, Henry Clay had pounded the Lady Bearcats 9-1. Kelsey New led the attack with a double and three RBI while Alissa Vest stroked a double with a pair of runs batted in. Sixth-grader Bailey Curry also had two RBI with a single.
Peavler only yielded three hits to the Blue Devils.
St. Benedict, from the Memphis area and reported to be one of Tennessee’s better programs, turned two first inning errors into a pair of runs then scored three more in the sixth to put the Lady Bearcats away.
“We shouldn’t have given up any in (the sixth) inning either,” Glass said.
Curry led the attack with two hits, while Anna Marie Hyatt drove in Anderson’s only run.
