Lady Rams fall to Lady Terriers

MT. VERNON — The Lady Rams softball team knocked out several hits but could never string together a solid rally in a 9-0 loss to Carbondale on Thursday.

We hit the ball on the button several times and didn't get anything to show for it,” Mt. Vernon coach Lance Boldt said. “We just couldn't put anything together.”

Mt. Vernon finished the game with eight hits, but several runners were cut down before the Lady Rams could build any momentum. A pair of runners were caught stealing. Another left first base too early and was called out.

We kind of hurt ourselves on the basepaths,” Boldt said.

Malorie Garner had two hits, including a double, for Mt. Vernon. Six other Mt. Vernon batters had hits. Hannah Wright tallied the only other extra-base hit with a triple.

Casey Little pitched a complete game for the Lady Rams in the circle. She didn't allow Carbondale any huge offensive innings, but the Lady Terriers scored in five of their seven times at the plate. Carbondale jumped out to a 3-0 lead in the opening and steadily tacked on. Mt. Vernon finished with six errors, three walks and a hit batter.

I really wanted to come out today and compete,” Boldt said. “From the very first batter on, it just seemed like (we) gave them baserunners. We hit with them. It's that extra stuff that kills us.”

Olivia Clark-Kettleson led Carbondale's offense with two hits and four RBI.

Mt. Vernon is 1-7 overall this season. The Lady Rams are 0-1 in South Seven Conference action.

We're trying hard. We're working hard,” Boldt said. “I'm proud of the girls for their hard work, and it's not a lack of effort.

We just need to compete, and we're helping ourselves out at the plate. We need to find ways of scoring runs. We need to find ways of keeping the game close and giving ourselves a chance in the late innings.”
