Softball Lady Bucs one-hit by University in 8-0 setback


MORGANTOWN – The Buckhannon-Upshur softball Lady Bucs were one-hit by the University Hawks Monday evening in Morgantown dropping an 8-0 decision.

B-U’s Shelby McDaniels broke up the no-hitter  by University’s Autumn Stemple in the sixth and final inning with a single.

Even more concerning for head coach Levi Bender has to be his defense.

Coming off a 13-error game against Parkersburg South, the Lady Bucs committed six errors against University leading to seven of the eight Hawk runs being unearned.

A trio of errors in the bottom of the third inning allowed University to chase across four unearned runs for a 4-0 lead.

An error opened the door for a three-run University fourth inning as the Hawks took a 7-0 lead in the bottom of the fourth.

University ended the game in the bottom of the sixth without the benefit of a hit scoring a run.

Jansen Kimble (7-7) suffered the loss in the circle.

She made the start and went 3 1/3 innings and gave up one earned run on seven hits while fanning two.

Megan Bailey tossed the final 2 1/3 innings and allowed one unearned run on two hits.

Stemple struck out 12 for University while not walking a batter.

The loss was the fourth in a row for the Lady Bucs and dropped them to 7-9 on the season.

They were slated to play Preston Tuesday and Lewis County Wednesday.

They will visit Preston today and then visit Morgantown on Friday.
