Lady Pointer romp, 13-2

Jim Walker



SOUTH POINT — Good pitching plus good hitting equals success.

Those two facets added up to success for the South Point Lady Pointers on Thursday as they beat the New Boston Lady Tigers 13-2 in five innings.

“We had another solid outing. Kaitlyn Brown gave another strong pitching performance and two underclassmen stepped up tonight,” said South Point coach Tanner Heaberlin. “It was a great all-around game both on the offensive and defensive side.”

While Brown gave the Lady Pointers good pitching — she allowed five hits and struck out seven — freshman Haley Rawlins and sophomore Sylvia Griffith provided the offense.

Rawlins was 3-3 with a home run and three RBI and Griffith was 3-3 with two doubles.

New Boston went up 2-0 in the top of the first. South Point tied it in the bottom of the inning a hit by Abbey Winkler and Rawlins’ home run.

The Lady Pointers took a 6-2 lead in the second with he aid of two errors, a walk and a two-run double by Griffith.

South Point blew the game open with seven runs in the fourth.

Bri Whaley walked and Rawlins and Griffith singled for a run. Andi Kleinman reached on an error as two runs scored.

Halie Powell walked, Hannah Carey and Brown singled in runs and Rawlins singled in two more.

South Point hosts Chesapeake on Friday in an Ohio Valley Conference game.
