The Lady Wolverines of East Webster High School opened their 2014 region play on a solid note Tuesday night, taking a 14-2 win
After falling behind 2-0 in the top of the first inning, EW scored at least three runs in each of the first four innings to take the win by the run rule. The Lady Wolverines had six hits in the game, while CCHS had six hits, but committed seven errors.
East Webster was set to visit Winona on Thursday, before hitting the road to take on Calhoun City on Monday. The Lady Wolverines then host Eupora on April 3 before traveling to Philadelphia to play in the Neshoba Tournament on April 5.
The Lady Wolverines dropped a 5-4 decision to South Pontotoc last Thursday, but bounced back to beat them 4-3 in extra innings on Saturday in the Houston Tournament.
“Any win is good, but it was good to see that we came back and were able to beat them,” said EW head coach Lee Berryhill.
East Webster took an 8-1 win over North Pontotoc the Houston Tournament. The Lady Wolverines scored seven runs in the first inning and had five hits for the game.
“We have really been hitting the ball pretty good all the way through the line-up and the girls have done a good job of picking each other up,” Berryhill said. “Whoever is being called on has been coming through.”
Third baseman Mamie Hollenhead, who fractured her jaw earlier in the season, returned to the lineup against Calhoun City on Tuesday and did well, picking up a hit and a pair of walk.
“It was good to get her back in the line-up,” Berryhill said. “We put here at third base to get her back out there. She did well.”
