Lady Trojans rally by Lady Bobcats, 5-3

Jim Walker



FRANKLIN FURNACE — Nobody’s perfect even if Jenna Crawford needed to be.

Crawford pitched six perfect innings, but the Portsmouth Lady Trojans used two errors to start a seventh inning rally as they beat Green 5-3 on Thursday.

“We made some mistakes and they took advantage of it,” said Green coach Dale Royse. “That was a tough one to lose. Crawford pitched one heck of a game.”

Crawford struck out five and did not walk a batter in taking the loss.

Green got a run in the first when Crawford singled, went to third on an outfield error and scored on a hit by Erin Imes.

Crawford and Imes singled and scored on a two-run single by Emma Salisbury in the third to make it 3-0.

Portsmouth rallied in the seventh with back-to-back errors after one out. Webb had a two-run single but Crawford caught a liner for the second out. The Lady Trojans then had four straight singles.

Crawford and Imes were 2-4 with Ciera Davis and Salisbury 2-3.
