The Woodsboro Lady Eagles used a 12-hit offensive attack and a nine strikeout effort by junior pitcher Megan Carter to soar past the Pettus Lady Eagles 13-0 on Tuesday.

The game was called after five innings on the 10-run mercy rule. The win keeps Woodsboro in third place two games behind Charlotte and one game behind Falls City in the District 31A race.

Woodsboro begins the second half of district play this Friday at Runge. Game time is set for 4 p.m.

Woodsboro set the tone early as they blasted seven runs across in their first at bat. Lead-off hitter Kaitlin McCool hit a shot into the left-centerfield gap for the first of four triples by Woodsboro. Chelsea Bluemel tripled in the first inning as well.

Woodsboro pushed one more run across in the second inning when Carter tripled and then scored on a passed ball. The scoring would round out in the fourth inning on consecutive hits by Bluemel, Carter, Melissa Cisneros, and Samantha Lopez.

Cassie Blaschke added an exclamation point with a two-run inside the park home run.

Defensively, Woodsboro played solid ball allowing just one hit.

Meagan Niemann had two great catches in centerfield and McCool fired a frozen rope to Bluemel to nab a Pettus runner trying to steal third base.
