Post-Season Bound Lady Diamond Warriors Drop Season Finale

The post-season bound East Central Community College fast-pitch softball team dropped its regular season finale to Pearl River Community College in a MACJC South Division doubleheader held Tuesday, April 22 on the Poplarville campus. The Lady Diamond Warriors fell 4-3 in the opener and were outscored 7-3 in the nightcap.

EC fell to 32-14 overall and 17-11 in league play following the twin bill. The Lady Diamond Warriors begin post-season play as the No. 4 seed in the South and will battle North # 1 seed Itawamba Community College in a best-of-three series scheduled Friday-Saturday, April 25-26, on the Fulton campus. The No.17-ranked Lady Indians completed regular season action with 33-10 overall mark and 21-3 record in North Division competition.

The playoff series will be broadcast on the Itawamba Web site:

http://www.ustream.tv/channel/letsgoicc, and on the ECCC Web site, www.eccc.edu. The series winner earns a berth in the MACJC State Tournament set May 2-4. In the first game with Pearl River, EC rallied to tie the contest at 3-3 in the top of the seventh and send the game into extra innings. The Lady Wildcats scored the winning run in the bottom of the eighth off an RBI single by Allie Flint.

Ty Buckley led the Lady Warrior offense with a double and two singles. She also knocked in a run. Buckley is a product of Neshoba Central High School. Other hitters were Morgan Porter of Enterprise, two singles and RBI; Kaylin Hopkins of Louisville, double and single; Hayley Stephens of Union, two singles; and Karoline Holsonback of South Lamar (Ala.) High School, Mallory Turner of West Lauderdale and Anna-Katherine Nowell of Leake Academy, singles each.

Runs were scored by Hopkins, Nowell and Christen Benson of Brookhaven. Kendra Wilson went the distance in recording the loss. She allowed two earned runs on 10 hits and walked three batters. Wilson is a product South Lamar (Ala.) High School.

In the second contest, Buckley belted her 20th home run and is currently tied for most homers in NJCAA Division II competition. She was also credited with two singles and collected three RBIs.

Other hitters were Turner, three singles; Lindsey Beard of Clarkdale, RBI single; and Nowell, Stephens, Porter, Hopkins and Amber McBroom of Brandon, singles each.

Runs were scored by Turner (2), Nowell and Buckley.

Makayla Kelly took the loss. She hurled 5 1/3 innings and allowed four earned runs on five hits. Kelly is a product of Nederland (Texas) High School. Wilson pitched two-thirds of an inning and allowed one earned run on two hits. Pearl River enters post-season play as the No. 3 team in the South. The Wildcats, who finished the regular season 24-16 overall and 18-10 in the division, travel to No. 2 Northwest Mississippi for a best-of-three series also scheduled April 25-26 in Senatobia.
