TENNERTON – The Buckhannon-Upshur Middle School Little Lady Bucs were unable to overcome a rash of 14 errors here last Wednesday and wound up falling to South by a 15-4 spread.
Only three of the runs off Ciara Melton were earned.
The loss left the Little Lady Bucs with a 6-3 record going into Monday’s road game with Tucker Valley’s Lady Wildcats. They will entertain Mountaineer (Clarksburg) this evening and Lincoln Thursday.
South took a 1-0 lead in the top of the first inning on a hit batter and two miscues.
Buckhannon answered with two in the bottom half on Alyssa Rohr’s double to center field, a single by Mackenzie Crites and an error on a Shelby McDaniels ground ball.
South tied it with two markers in the top of the second, using two walks, Lillian Kooser’s single, and an error.
The Little Lady Bucs took a 4-3 edge in the third when Crites singled, moved up on a single to center by McDaniels and ended up scoring on the throw-in of Robin Ball’s single to right.
But it was all South the rest of the way.
The visitors plated three in the fourth on two bobbles, and singles by Jocelyn McCartney, Emily Goldcamp and Alaziah Pugh, and made it 10-4 with four in the sixth frame, cashing in on a walk and two errors and getting a single from Emily Mathess and a double from Asia Halbritter.
They finished up with a five-run spurt in the seventh on two miscues, singles by Maddie Shaffer, Analise Haines, Pugh and Kooser and Goldcamp’s Two-bagger.
Buckhannon collected seven hits, with Crites banging two, and Rohr, Melton, McDaniels, Ball and Sahsha Zickefoose adding one each.
