WCHS Softball Team Pounds Hopkinsville 12-2 in Opener

Trojans Softball 300WEBSTER COUNTY, Ky. (3/20/13) - Webster County High School softball team opened its season in grand fashion on Saturday, thumping Hopkinsville 12-2 at Tie-Breaker Park in Hopkinsville.

WCHS pounded out 15 hits in the season-opener while Lady Trojan hurler Bailey Townsend limited the Lady Tigers to just five hits and worked around five WC fielding errors with nine strikeouts.

Kristin Jones led the charge for Webster at the plate with a 4-for-4 performance including three runs scored and two RBI. Macye Davis was 3-for-5 with a pair of doubles and three RBI while Jerrica Jones was also 3-for-5 with three runs scored and two RBI's. Christian Papineau was 2-for-5 with two runs scored and two RBI's.

Papineau jump-started the WCHS offense in the top of the first with a lead-off double and she moved to third on a bunt single from Jerrica Jones. Papineau scored two pitches later on a passed ball. Jones came around to score on a two-out double by Davis giving Webster a quick 2-0 lead. Hopkinsville cut the lead to 2-1 in the bottom of the first and then tied the game at 2-2 in the third.

But it was all Webster County from that point on. The Lady Trojans tacked on two runs in the fifth to capture the lead for good. Kerstin Jones opened the rally with a single and one out later, Jerrica Jones legged-out a bunt single. Bailey Townsend’s RBI-groundout scored one run and Davis followed with another run-scoring safety for the 4-2 lead.

Webster put the game away in the sixth with a six-run rally. Back-to-back walks to Kelsey Mayes and Kayleigh Wood set the table for a RBI-double off the bat of Kristin Jones. Papineau then delivered a triple to chase home two more Lady Trojans. Jerrica Jones’ single scored Papineau and Jones scored one out later on a single from Kaylyn Winders. Davis put the finishing touches on the uprising with an RBI-single to plate Winders and push Webster’s lead to 10-2. Madison Yates and Kristin Jones both singled and scored in the sixth to set the final score.

Webster stranded six runners while Hopkinsville left nine on base.

The Lady Trojans are back in action Thursday, hosting arch-rival Henderson County in Dixon. They will participate in the Lone Oak Invitational Friday and Saturday and then back on the road Monday at Lyon County.
