Connersville 8, Greensburg 7; 3A Sectional 29- Round 1

The following is an unedited report from Steve Giesting for our live webcast of this event.

The Connersville Lady Spartans came back from a 7 run deficit, scoring 4 times in the bottom of the 7th, to walk off with an 8 – 7 victory over Greensburg in the opening round of the class 3A Softball Sectional Tuesday night.  Madison Fields singled home Jeri Ellis and Allison Woytik with the tying and winning runs in the bottom of the 7th to send the Lady Spartans into Thursday’s semifinal.  They will take on Franklin County who defeated Lawrenceburg 4 – 1 in the 2nd game on Tuesday night.

Greensburg got off to a fast start as the first 5 Pirate batters reached to open the game.  Samantha Cain led off the game for the Pirates and scored on a double by Sydney Meyer.  Kirstin Hersley reached on an error that allowed Meyer to score.  Hersley then scored on a double by Bailey Meyer who scored on a double by Bailey Springmeyer to make it a 4 – 0 Pirate lead after the first half inning.

Meanwhile, Greensburg’s Anika Scripture was shutting down the Spartans early in the game.  Emily Reese worked a walk to lead off the game.  Jeri Ellis sacrificed her to 2nd but Reese was out trying to get to 3rd on the play on a good throw from 2nd baseman Springmeyer.  Scripture then proceeded to set down the next 7 Spartan hitters.

Greensburg added to their lead in the top of the 4th.  Keirsten Lynette led the inning off with a single.  A single by Cain and a walk to Sydney Meyer loaded the bases with nobody out.  With one out, Bailey Meyer hit a sacrifice fly to center field  to plate Lynette.  Cain scored when Springmeyer reached on an error followed by a run scoring single by Gabriella Burton to score the 3rd Pirate run of the inning to make it 7 – 0 Greensburg.

Connersville started to chip away at the lead in the bottom of the 4th.  Reese led the inning of with a walk, the first Spartan hit of the game.  She would move to 3rd on a double by Allison Woytik and later score on a sacrifice fly by Makayla Shirkey.  It was now 7 – 1 Pirates after 4 innings.
