Cougars use big sixth inning to beat Lions

ELNORA — The North Daviess softball team has had a roller coaster season, and that didn't change Tuesday afternoon.

The Cougars (13-6) defeated Loogootee (5-12), 8-2, Tuesday afternoon at North Daviess behind a balanced offensive attack.

Through the first two-and-a-half innings, Loogootee looked to be in control with a 2-0 lead on three hits, but then the North Daviess offense woke up.

Tailon Graber’s one-out single to centerfield scored Alexis Reed and Larynda Keith to tie the game at two.

After Graber shut down the Lions in order in the top of the fourth, North Daviess sent 12 batters to the plate - scoring six runs on six hits to push the lead to 8-2. The Cougars opened the inning with five straight hits.

Brooke Moore, Reed, Jessie Miller and Brooke Lindy all had run-scoring hits in the inning.

“We did not make adjustments the first time through the order,” said North Daviess coach Jodi Berry. “We were hitting off our front foot and not waiting on the pitch. We’ve been preaching all year ¬you get one look and the next time you better make adjustments, and we finally did that in the third and fourth innings. It’s frustrating, because I don’t like it taking that long. I don’t like the roller coaster ride of zero, zero, two, six, zero, zero. We want consistent hitting all the way through.”

After retiring six of the first seven batters she faced, Loogootee starter Remington Wagler surrendered six runs on seven hits before she was replaced with one out in the fourth.

“I’m at a loss to explain it right now,” said Loogootee coach Greg Clark. “We’ll have to evaluate it here in a little bit. She was cruising right along, and she had to put the ball over the plate a little bit more and those kinds of things happen.”
