Lady Rams fall to East

MT. VERNON — Belleville East blew open a close game Monday night against the Lady Rams softball squad.

The game was tied 1-1 going into the fifth inning before East struck. The Lancers racked up nine runs in the final two innings for a 10-2 victory.

I thought we played solid softball for four and a third innings,” Mt. Vernon coach Lance Boldt said. “We had a couple errors in that fifth that kind of opened up the floodgates for them.”

Belleville East opened up the scoring in the first inning. Alison Mitts leadoff with a single and moved to second after a sacrifice bunt. She went to third after a wild pitch and scored on an error with two outs.

Mt. Vernon matched the Lancers' run with one of its own in the third. Jazmine Hawkins led off the inning with a walk and raced home on a booming triple from Hannah Wright.

Offensively, we got a big RBI triple from Hannah, which I thought we maybe had some things going there,” Boldt said.

Bria Meyer started the game pitching in the circle for the Lady Rams. She baffled the Lancers batters early in the game. Meyer had four strikeouts in the opening four innings and walked one batter. Casey Little finished the game for the Lady Rams.

(Bria) had her stuff going,” Boldt said. “This is as well as she's pitched all year, those first four innings. She was throwing strikes, changing her speeds.”

Mt. Vernon's only other run came in the sixth on back-to-back doubles from Hannah Carbonaro and Malorie Garner.

Mt. Vernon is 11-18 overall this season and travels to Effingham today. The Lady Rams stay in action Wednesday against South Seven Conference foe Centralia.

This is a tough week for us,” Boldt said. “This is a tough way to end the season. The positive is we see some good teams before we play Carbondale in the regional next week.”
