SOUTH POINT — The South Point Lady Pointers saw no reason to change their offense.

The Lady Pointers continued their hot-hitting as they collected 12 hits in an 8-3 Ohio Valley Conference win over the Coal Grove Lady Hornets Wednesday.

Haley Rawlins was 3-4 while Abbey Winkler, Sylvia Griffith and Andi Kleinman were all 2-4 to pace the offense.

South Point (10-6, 7-1) had six extra base hits including a home run by pitcher Kaitlyn Brown.

“Haley Rawlins kept her hot bat going and we played good defense behind a good pitching performance by Kaitlyn Brown,” said South Point coach Tanner Heaberlin.

“I was glad to have a good win on senior night.”

South Point took a 1-0 lead in the first inning when Winkler doubled, stole third and scored on Rawlins’ bunt single.

Brown hit a solo home run in the second inning and it was 2-0.

The lead went to 4-0 in the third.

Rawlins singled and Griffith had an RBI double. Kleinman’s base hit scored Griffith.

South Point pushed across four runs in the fourth to lead 8-0.

Jessika Majher reached on a missed third strike, Hannah Carey doubled and Rawlins was safe on an error as a run scored. Griffith then tripled home two more runs and she scored on a fielder’s choice.

Coal Grove got on the scoreboard with three runs in the sixth when Kaitlynn Murphy singled, Deanna Bentley walked and Kelsey Grove smacked a three-run homer.
