WCMS downs Prescott South

It seems like the only thing that can keep the Warren County Middle School softball team from winning recently is rain.
The Lady Pioneers won for the eighth time in nine games Friday when the team defeated Prescott South 8-4 at Warren County High School.
Warren County (13-2) was just happy to get on the field Friday. The Lady Pioneers had games canceled on Tuesday and Thursday, which were sandwiched around a 6-1 win over Harris on Wednesday.  Chomping at the bit to get back on the field, Warren County showed a little rust early, but dominated late.
The Lady Pioneers spotted Prescott South a 2-0 lead in the top of the first as the visitors scored on errors. Warren County had to wait until the third inning to lead for good.
Warren County temporarily tied the game in the second after Bethany Porter scored on a wild pitch, which followed Emily Webb scoring on a groundout by Neva Tackett in the first inning.
Prescott South surged back in the lead in the top of the third though. Two hits off Erin Hollis, along with two more Warren County errors, gave Prescott South a 4-2 lead entering the bottom of the third. It would be the last time the visitors held an advantage.
After Emily Mikkola scored on an error to begin the third, Kyra Hillis gave the Lady Pioneers the lead with a bases-loaded single to score Madison Mason and Skyler Youngblood. Hollis would make it 7-4 with a two-run double that brought around Amy Webb, who entered to run for Hillis, and Bethany Porter.
Playing with the lead, Hollis cruised in the circle in the final two innings. Prescott South went quietly at the plate in the fourth and fifth innings, while Warren County added to its total courtesy of a run-scoring double by Mason in the fourth.
Hollis finished with five strikeouts as she allowed four runs on four hits. Mikkola and Porter led the Lady Pioneers with two hits apiece, followed by Mason, Hillis, Hollis and Emily Webb with one hit each.
In Wednesday’s 6-1 win over Harris, Youngblood had the highlight of the night when she blasted a three-run home run in the third inning. It was the team’s first home run of the season.
Youngblood, Hollis, Hillis, Porter and Emily Webb had one hit each against Harris. Hollis earned the win, pitching a complete game and allowing one run on three hits.
