Lady Tigers roll past Glenns Ferry
"The third time's the charm," or so the saying goes.
After rain and hail halted play last Tuesday in their home conference softball game against Bishop Kelly, and washed out Wednesday's scheduled game at Emmett, the Mountain Home Lady Tigers were finally able to play some softball Friday, and play they did, scoring eight runs in the bottom of the fifth to end their non-conference game with Glenns Ferry, 14-4, by the 10-run rule.
Ali Hillman had the big bat for Mountain Home, whacking three hits, including a double and home run and drove in six runs.
Ashley Kipp had two hits including a double and two RBIs, and Modesty Labbe, one of the JV players moved up to the varsity to fill in for some varsity players in San Francisco on a choir trip, had two hits in four trips to the plate.
Sheena Nelson and Brei Draper both had hits, Nelson knocked in two runs, Draper, one, and Sammy Dodge also had an RBI.
Breann Christiansen improved to 2-0 on the season, giving up just three hits while striking out four and walking four.
"It was a very nice win," said Mountain Home Lady Tiger softball coach Joy Memmelaar. "The girls played very well, considering were were missing quite a few (on the choir trip to San Francisco), and we pulled some girls up from the JV and they stepped up and did a wonderful job.
"Modesty (Labbe) was hitting in the three position and she stepped right in and started hitting the ball, and Ashley Christiansen dove for a ball at third to get a nice catch, so they did a nice job with the girls and it made it nice for all of them."
The home game against Bishop Kelly, which was halted in the bottom of the third inning with Mountain Home trailing, 6-0, will resume from that point on April 29 at 4 p.m. The Emmett game has been rescheduled for Friday at Emmett at 5 p.m.
The Lady Tigers were at Vallivue yesterday (Tuesday) in conference softball, and travel to Wood River on Saturday for an 11 a.m. non-conference game with the Lady Wolverines.
