Ironton vs. Hilliard Bradley called for rain
AID — It seems the weather is the only thing that has been able to stop the Ironton Lady Fighting Tigers thus far this season.
Ironton (10-0) was leading the Hilliard Bradley 4-1 when the rains ended the game early.
“There was very good competition this weekend and in our last game against Hilliard Bradley our ladies rose even more to the occasion as it was a steady rain coming down pretty much through four innings when the downpour hit,” said Ironton coach Jim Dyer who said the game was called due to player safety.
“Our players wanted to continue to make it an official game but there was no way.”
Ironton took a 1-0 lead in the second inning. Kylee Richendollar singled, Kiandra Martin reached on an error, both moved up on Emily Weber’s fly out and Kylie Miller’s RBI ground out.
The Lady Tigers went up 4-0 in the third.
Jada Rogers singled and Kirsten Williams belted a 2-run homer.
Moore singled, Richendollar walked, Martin singled and Moore scored on the throw from the outfield.
Bradley got its run in the top of the fourth on a 2-out walk and RBI double by Kelly Conley who had both hits for the Lady Jaguars.
Moore pitched all 4 innings, striking out 6 and walking 2.
