SOFTBALL:

Washington 6, Chillicothe 4

Washington CH rallied late to hand Chillicothe a 6-4 loss at Lady Cavs Field.
The win avenges a 22-8 thumping the Cavaliers handed the Blue Lions in front of their home fans.

The Lions chipped away at a 4-0 deficit with a two-run second, Hawk hit a solo shot in the 5th and then the capper was a 3-run 7th inning. Hawk drove in five runs.

"We've kind of been this same type of team all year" said Lions Coach Randy Elzey. "Tonight, the tables were turned a little bit. I mean, it's been us on the other end of many of these type of games this year."

Hannah Ray had a three-run shot in Chillicothe's four-run 1st inning, which gave the home crowd something to cheer about. But that was dampened by Washington CH.

The Cavs had bases loaded in the 3rd inning, but that was their final offensive threat.

Kate Jude earned the win and Olivia Ray suffered the loss.

"We certainly had our chances" said Chillicothe's Greg Phillips. "We stranded some runners... but they're a pretty resilient team. We were the last team to beat them in the league and they have just kind of rolled through league themselves. They're not out of it either."

"We're still goin' after the league title because they have two losses now and we have three" said Elzey.

Chillicothe has Clinton Massie left in SCOL action (Thursday) and Washington has two more, Hillsboro Wednesday at home and at East Clinton Thursday.

"We still control our own destiny" said Phillips. "All we have done is made that a little more difficult, but I'm sure our girls will rise to the challenge."

Chillicothe slips to 12-6 and 9-2 in the SCOL while Washington improves to 7-16 and 7-3 in the SCOL.
