Local Roundup - Indians bunt way to upset victory over Everett


EVERETT, Pa. - No. 7 Southern Fulton used three bunt singles and a two-run single from Trish Douglas to get four runs in the first inning and hang on for a 4-3 win Thursday over Everett, the top-ranked team in District 5.

The Indians (10-2, 5-2 Sideling Hill League) needed all of them as Everett rallied for three runs of its own in the first, but neither team scored again.

"I thought 'Holy cow,' because they beat us at home and thought this was going to be a high-scoring game," Southern Fulton coach Brown Cutchall said. "But they settled down and we played some good defense."

Running catches in the sixth by left fielder Missy Mellott and center fielder Bethany Mellott saved "at least a couple of doubles," Cutchall said. "Maybe even triples or home runs."


The win strengthens the Indians' cause as they try to repeat as district champions. They are currently fourth with two weeks to play, but can keep moving up with more wins.

SHENANDOAH JUNCTION, W.Va. - Ryan Lipscomb struck out 12 and allowed no earned runs in a three-hitter as the Cougars exacted revenge at Sager Field for an earlier loss to the Bulldogs.

Lipscomb capped the scoring with an RBI single in the sixth as Jefferson took a one-game lead in the loss column over Martinsburg (14-7) for the top seed in the sectional tournament in two weeks.
