Softball Little Bucs fall to RLB and Lincoln


SHINNSTON – The Buckhannon-Upshur Middle School Little Lady Bucs were unable to get their bats going last week and lost a pair of shut-outs on the road.

They managed just one hit in a 11-0 defeat at Robert L. Bland last Tuesday, and could muster only two hits in dropping a 10-0 decision to Lincoln here on Wednesday

Buckhannon’s safety against Robert L. Bland’s Lady Patriots came on Bailey Blackwell’s two-out single in the third inning. The game ended on the mercy rule after three frames.

Katarah Linger suffered the loss, surrendering 10 hits and walking two.

The Lady Patriots tallied two in the first stanza, eight in the second, and one in the third.

In the clash with Lincoln’s Lady Wildcats, Alexis Cannady banged a two-out single in the second canto, and Tori Perkins lashed a one-out single in the fourth for Buckhannon’s two hits.

Jansen Kimble worked in the circle, allowing six hits, walking five and fanning four.

Lincoln scored four times in the first, twice in the second, and four more times in the fourth to close out the contest on the mercy rule.

The Little Lady Bucs fell to 1-6 going into spring break. They will return to action April 23, traveling to Bridgeport to battle the Lady Braves.
