Lady Rams win at Mascoutah

Mt. Vernon’s softball team beat Mascoutah 12-9 in extra innings Thursday.

“We played two different games,” Mt. Vernon coach Lance Boldt said. “The first half of the game was as if we weren’t ready to go.”

Mt. Vernon trailed early and was down 8-4 in the sixth inning before the game went into extras.

Summer Hobson, Hannah Wright and Lauren Wilson all had RBI hits in the eighth inning to help Mt. Vernon claim the win.

Wright was the winning pitcher in relief for Mt. Vernon. She threw two innings and had two strikeouts.

Haley Chelf started the game and lasted one inning. Casey Little threw five innings. Little finished with three strikeouts.

“With that we didn’t have a chance,” Boldt said. “She stabilized things for us, which was really, really promising to see.”

Wright had three hits and four RBI. Page Clinton added two hits and scored four runs. Alexis Stewart added two hits and two RBI. Wilson also had a hit and two RBI.

Mt. Vernon is 11-14 overall this season and travel to Salem today.
