Kirk Freeport 16

GCM 12

The 2018 season of Girls Softball continued on Wednesday 25 April. Kirk Freeport built a huge lead after two innings then survived a furious comeback by GCM to hold on for a 16-12 victory in the highest scoring game of the season. Shay Windsor and Ariyana Ebanks each hit inside-the-park homers for Kirk Freeport who led 12-3 after two innings. Windsor and Ebanks both scored three runs on the night as did second baseman Annie Hawkins and Ashley Thompson. Pitcher Deandra Bush had a good night on the mound allowing just three runs in three innings of work, while retiring the final seven batters that she faced. GCM mounted a dramatic rally scoring nine runs in the bottom of the fourth. With the bases loaded and the tying run at the plate, Thompson fielded a ground ball back to the mound and calmly threw to first for the final out. GCM’s Clara Ramos, Akeyla Ebanks and Hannah Gibson each scored two runs on the night. Ramos made two excellent catches at third base and pitcher Thai Merren caught a solid line drive hit back to her.
