Lady Bobcats push past Alton

Wednesday, October 12, 2011

The Thayer Lady Bobcats visited Alton's Lady Comets Oct. 4 for a make-up softball game.

The Lady Cats got two quick runs in the first, but a base-running error ended the inning.

Lady Bobcat Head Coach B.J. Adams was holding Thayer pitchers in reserve for upcoming district games. After several walks and scores by Alton, the Lady Cats were in a big hole, 10-2, by the end of the first.

The Lady Bobcats kept chipping away with base hits and good base running.

After the third inning, Alton's pitcher, Hannah Smith, lobbed some off-speed pitches for strikes. But once the Lady cats got their timing down, the flood gates opened, with Thayer scoring 20 runs, adding to the two they registered in the first.

One of the Lady Bobcats' runs was catcher Elly Burrelli's with an inside-the-park home run.

Only giving up one more Alton run, the Lady Bobcats went home with a 22-11 win.
