The Woodsboro Lady Eagles used a 14-hit offensive attack and a 15-strikeout pitching performance by Megan Carter to overwhelm the Pettus Lady Eagles 10-1 this past Tuesday night in Woodsboro.

Carter also helped her cause by blasting a solo home run in the bottom of the sixth inning that hit the scoreboard in left-field.

Woodsboro struck early in their first at bat with two runs as Kaitlin McCool led off with a walk, stole second, and scored on a double by Chelsea Bluemel. Bluemel would move her way around the bases and eventually score on an errant throw to third base.

Cassie Blaschke got things going again in the third inning with a leadoff hit. Mallory Jessop, Melinda Hernandez, and McCool each followed with hits to bring in three more runs for the home team.

Woodsboro would explode for four runs in the fifth inning on a leadoff triple by Bluemel and hits by Melissa Cisneros, Meagan Niemann, Jessop, and McCool.

Pettus scored its lone run in the third inning on an error, a walk, and a base hit.

Woodsboro was just as tough defensively as Pettus stranded six base runners during crucial points in the game. Blaschke made an outstanding grab of a bunted ball on the third base line and then fired a hard throw to first to rob a Pettus player of a sure hit.

Cisneros, Hernandez, and Bluemel each snared fly balls to end a Pettus threat.

At press time, Woodsboro was set to travel to Charlotte for a 4 p.m. Wednesday game. Win or lose, the Lady Eagles could possibly have a district playoff game to decide a second or third seed.
