In a strong gusty wind on Monday evening the Highlanders defeated the Nitro Wildcats on their home turf 6-2. Both teams bats were cold in the first two innings. After a get your head in the game speech by Coach Wilson the bats responded in the third, plating a run taking a 1-0 lead. A walk and a hit by Nitro plated the tying run in the bottom of the fourth putting the girls in a 1-1 deadlock. This must of served as a wake up call becaus the bats exploded in the fifth with the girls plating 4 runs to put the game away. Kayla pitched a servicable 4 innings in the strong winds and Chelsae finished it off allowing only 1 score. Thea Cooper had her best day at the plate going 2-3 and scoring twice. Having her legs on base makes good things happen for this lineup. Trysten Gue, Brittney Napier and Erin Lowery also went 2-3 and Lowery had the game breaking double in the 4th inning driving in two. Kayla then followed with a line shot to left plating the other two runs. South Charleston is next at their place Tuesday in a battle of two of the states top ranked teams.
