Lady Cougars host Raiders in double-header

The South Decatur varsity softball team captured an early lead against South Ripley Saturday, but the visiting Raiders rallied back to win 10-2 at the Decatur County Softball Complex.

After two scoreless innings, South Ripley broke through with a run in the top of the third inning. South Decatur answered back with two in the bottom of the third. However, the Raiders came back with six runs in the top of the fourth to put the game out of reach.

The Lady Cougars committed seven errors, spoiling a solid start by senior Lizzie Hedger. Making her season debut, Hedger gave up just two earned runs in seven innings. She gave up five hits, walked two batters and struck out four.

“Lizzie pitched a good game,” said Cougar head coach Lisa Huff.

South out-hit the Raiders 8-5.

Hedger and senior Julia Miller each tallied a double and drove in a run. Recording a hit apiece were freshman Brooke Helms, junior Brittany Koors, senior Tayler Noble, senior Courtney Billingsley, senior Ashley Johannigman and sophomore Morgan Eden.

“We hit the ball pretty well,” said Huff. “Defensively, we struggled.”

In the second game, the junior varsity matchup, the Raiders defeated the Cougars 24-4. Olivia Rigby hit a single and a double, and junior Sydney Callahan added a double.

South Decatur opened the season Tuesday against Lawrenceburg.

The visiting Tigers beat the Lady Cougars 19-5 in a game that Lawrenceburg led just 7-4 after four innings.

The Lady Cougars led 4-2 after Lawrenceburg had taken a 2-0 lead early.

Every time South appeared to take control of the game, the Tigers darkened the hopes of head coach Lisa Huff’s Cougars.

Senior Ashley Johannigman started for South in place of senior Lizzie Hedger, who was attending an academic banquet.

South tallied 10 hits on the day, led by sophomore Morgan Eden (2-for-3, inside-the-park home run, three runs batted in). Johannigman added two hits to lead the rest of the hitters.
