SOUTH POINT — Maybe the South Point Lady Pointers need to look into becoming financial investors.

The Lady Pointers had just four hits but scored six runs in a 6-2 win over the Minford Lady Falcons on Thursday.

“We played great defense and got the hits when we needed against a very good Minford team,” said South Point coach Tanner Heaberlin.

“Kaitlyn Brown pitched another great game and let her defense play behind her.”

South Point took a 1-0 lead in the third when Brown walked and Abbey Winkler reached on an error.

Minford tied the game in the fourth on a home run by Jordyn Pennington, but the Lady Pointers got two in the fifth.

Brown walked and Winkler had an RBI double. Winkler scored after a wild pitch and passed ball.

The Lady Pointers got three runs in the sixth.

Haley Rawlins was safe on an error, Sylvia Griffith was hit by a pitch and Andi Kleinman had a two-run double. Hannah Carey singled in a run and later scored on a wild pitch.
