The Woodsboro Lady Eagles had not lost a home game since their inaugural season of 2007. That did not matter to the Charlotte Trojanettes last Friday as they took advantage of five Woodsboro errors and eight stranded base runners to upset the Lady Eagles 5-3.

The loss was the second consecutive in district play for Woodsboro and now the District 31A race will be wide open going into the second half of play this Friday.

The Lady Eagles jumped out to an early 1-0 lead in their first at bat when Kaitlin McCool led off with a hit, stole second base, and scored on a Chelsea Blumel RBI single.

In the third inning with two on and two outs, the error bug struck. Five unearned runs later, it was Charlotte with a comfortable 5-1 lead.

The Lady Eagles managed one run in the fourth inning when Mallory Jessop singled with two outs, stole second, and scored on a bad throw.

In the sixth inning, Megan Carter and Melissa Cisneros hit back-to-back doubles to push one more run across.

Charlotte hung tough and played great defense all night. The Lady Eagles loaded the bases in the sixth inning but could not take advantage.

Carter allowed just five hits the entire seven innings striking out six batters.
