LADY HORNETS SOFTBALL — Huntsville beats Caney Creek 6-2

HUNTSVILLE — Huntsville took a 6-2 victory against Caney Creek on Friday night.

The Lady Hornets scored a pair of runs in the first inning, another in the fourth, then brought in three in the sixth inning when Paige Pacher hit a two-RBI triple and eventually scored on an overthrow to home plate.

Pacher went 2-for-4 on the game and catcher Kelsey Cryer led Huntsville at the plate going 3-for-4.

There were also hits recorded by Anna Lynch, Sabrina Johnson, Samantha Davis and Morgan Cheatham also hit a triple in the game.

Huntsville head coach Rick Burns said the Lady Hornets are starting to produce better plate appearances after starting off district 0-2.

“I think the girls just came out a little bit more focused this time,” Burns said. “They’re starting to jell and come together. We’re still making a couple of changes here just to find that perfect little step that makes everything roll downhill for us. They’ve got a real competitive attitude and a real workmanship type of attitude, which is good.

“It’s not that we’re not hitting the ball. We’re just hitting the ball at people. I told them to just keep hitting the ball and good things are going to happen. Our time is going to come.”  

Lynch pitched the first four innings and Johnson closed it out for Huntsville in the last three innings against Caney Creek.

The Lady Hornets are 9-7 overall and 2-2 in District 18-4A action. That puts them just behind Montgomery (4-0), Magnolia (3-0) and Magnolia West (3-2).
