HUNTSVILLE SOFTBALL — Lady Hornets plate six runs in fifth inning, rout Caney Creek 12-3

HUNTSVILLE — The Lady Hornets softball team defeated Caney Creek 12-3 on Friday night at Kate Barr Ross Park.

It was sloppy for most of the game as they were eight total errors.

Seven of those errors were committed by the Lady Panthers, which benefited Huntsville (5-7 District 4A play, 12-12 overall) greatly.

Caney Creek (2-8 District play) tied the game at 3 in the top of the fifth inning on an RBI double by Siara Cegielski that scored Autumn Thomas, who reached on a Hornet error.

That was when the Lady Hornets exploded for six runs in the bottom of the fifth inning to make it 9-3.

Samantha Davis led off the inning with a single.

Then the bases were loaded after Kelsey Cryer and starting pitcher Anna Lynch reached on back-to-back errors.

Davis scored the go-ahead run after beating the throw at home plate and Cryer scored the fifth run on a throwing error to push the score to 5-3.

With the bases still loaded, Sabrina Johnson hit a 2-run single up the middle that went past the center fielder and all the way to the fence and allowed two extra runs to score to cap the inning.

“We were just trying to do what we came out to do and just hit the ball,” Lady Hornets coach Richard Burns said. “We worked hard on that every time we come out.”

The Lady Hornets tacked on three more runs in the bottom of the sixth inning to increase the lead to 12-3.

Lynch, who went the distance and got the win, retired six straight batters after the fifth inning.

“I think we really did good tonight,” Lynch said. “We had a few errors, but we held it together and got through it.”

    Sam Houston State defensive tackle Sione Latu preys on offensive linemen. The feeling of putting his hand in the turf and knowing he’s going to blow his opponent into the backfield drives him to succeed.
    He may get that feeling even more in 2014.

Defensive line coach Phil Pettite said he plans to play a rotation of eight defensive linemen, which will keep his players fresh late in games.
