TENNERTON – The Buckhannon-Upshur Lady Buc softball team wrapped up their regular season in fine fashion Thursday at home against the Preston Knights.

The Lady Bucs won a 15-0 four-inning decision.

At the time, the Lady Bucs didn’t realize it was their regular-season finale as their game with Morgantown on Friday and doubleheader with John Marshall on Saturday were rained out.

Buckhannon-Upshur ended their regular season with a 9-10 record.

Jansen Kimble and Shelby McDaniels teamed up in the circle limiting Preston to just four hits in the shutout win.

Kimble improved her record to 8-8 getting the start and going three innings allowing just two hits while striking out one.

McDaniels threw the final inning giving up two hits.

The Lady Bucs took a 1-0 lead in the bottom of the first when McDaniels hit a single to left, stole second and third and came home on a sacrifice fly by Brooklyn Robinson.

The Lady Bucs blew the game wide open in the second inning with an eight-run output.

They sent 12 batters to the plate taking a 9-0 lead.

They tacked on five more runs in the bottom of the third for a 14-0 advantage.

They wrapped up the scoring with a run in the bottom of the fourth McDaniels singled and later scored on an error.

The Lady Bucs had 14 hits in the win with McDaniels collecting three and Megan Bailey, Robinson, Kimble and McKinley Bonnett each getting two.

McDaniels, Robinson and Kimble all had three RBIs in the win.

The Lady Bucs will host Bridgeport in their sectional opener today at 5:30 p.m.
