The Lady Bolts Softball team played a VERY exciting game in Round 1 of the PIAA District III AA Playoffs yesterday and came away with the victory in 8 innings. Littlestown took the lead in the second inning after an RBI double by Kelsey Dews that scored Kaitlin Yealy. Mckenzie Somers pitched beautifully striking out 12 with no walks in her 8 innings of work. The Bolts held the lad until the bottom of the 7th when a lead off single and then a triple tied the game at one. With a runner on third a nobody out a sharp line drive was hit to Shelby Dews in Centerfield. The runner on third took off on the hit and Shelby made the smart play turning and firing to third after the catch for a Double Play! McKenzie followed that up with a strikeout to get out of the inning and head to some free softball!
In the top of the eight Kelsey Dews stroked a single, and was lifted for pinch runner Kaitlin Frock. When Cheyanne White came up with one out and a runner on second she laid down a spinning bunt that the Schuylkill Valley 3rd Baseman picked up before it could roll foul to all both runners to be safe. Emily Lanahan booming with confidence stepped up with a sac fly to play Frock for the go ahead run. McKenzie followed up with an RBI single scoring the other pinch runner Ally Schroeder to put the Bolts up two. The Bolts finished up in the bottom half of the inning one some great defensive work by Caitlin Price and another strikeout by McKenzie Somers.
Next Game will be played on Thursday May 22nd vs Brandywine Heights. The game will be played at Elizabethtown Community Park @ 4:30 pm.
