Eagles suffer softball loss to Rocky Grove
WARREN — Playing a rare home game in Warren due to a police investigation in the Youngsville area, the Youngsville softball team gave Rocky Grove a difficult time before ultimately dropping a 12-5 decision at the Farm Colony Complex in North Warren.
“I thought the girls played well and we fought back, but just came up short,” said Youngsville coach Scott Ishman. “With the crazy day that was thrown at us and playing a home game in Warren, I really thought the girls did well through it all.”
The visiting Orioles were able to score the first eight runs of the game before the Lady Eagles rallied back to cut that lead in half with a four-run bottom of the sixth.
Hailey Gray led off the inning with a single and moved up on Alyssa Gentz’s hit. Molly Helman walked to load the bases and four consecutive hits from Ireland Abraham, Raechel Lucks, Marissa VanGuilder and Madison Carnahan all brought home runs.
The Lady Eagles would later get a fifth run when Gentz scored on a hit from Helman.
Gentz led the Youngsville effort with three hits and Gray and Lucks added two apiece. Helman, Abraham, VanGuilder and Carnahan all added one hit each.
Youngsville returns to action today, hosting Saegertown.
