Lady Rams fall to Annies

CENTRALIA – Mt. Vernon's softball team started strong but couldn't hold off the Annies powerful offense.

Centralia beat Mt. Vernon 10-3 Wednesday.Sam Cameron dominated the Lady Rams pitching. She finished with three home runs and seven RBI to lead the Centralia offense. Cameron rocked a home run in the middle of a five run third inning to help the Annies seize a 5-2 lead.She added a pair of two-run shots in the fourth and sixth innings to help her team extend the advantage.“Kelby was (keeping the pitches down),” Boldt said. “She just happened to get a couple up, and she didn't miss them. She didn't miss them. You have to tip your cap to them and obviously her and what she was doing.”Mt. Vernon started the game with a pair of early runs and solid defense behind pitcher Haley Chelf.Hannah Wright finished with four hits and two RBI for Mt. Vernon. Wright hammered a solo home run to center field in the opening inning to give the Lady Rams a 1-0 edge.Wright bounced another shot off the left-center field field for a double in the third. The extra-base hit chased home another runner and the Lady Rams held a 2-0 lead.“Hannah obviously had a good day at the plate,” Boldt said. “Kelby (Kujawa) as well, but it takes an entire lineup. Centralia, they hit up and down the lineup and everybody was hitting.”Centralia answered the early offense from Mt. Vernon with 10 straight scores to claim a lopsided advantage.Kujawa helped Mt. Vernon get another run in the final inning when she delivered an RBI single. She finished with two hits.The bottom half of the Lady Rams lineup generated just one hit in the game.“We need the bottom half of our order to put Page in a situation where she can drive in a run instead of always having to be the one to get it started,” Boldt said.Haley Lockhart missed the game after leaving Wednesday's win against Effingham with discomfort in her surgically repaired knee.“I think the girls were a little bit down about Haley and her situation,” Boldt said. “We don't know how long she's going to be out, hopefully just a couple games.”Mt. Vernon is 10-14 overall this season and travels to Mascoutah today. Wednesday's win gave Centralia a share of the South Seven Conference title with Carbondale.
