Morristown East 5, Elizabethton 1

The opening play of the game set the tone of the game as the Lady Trojans scored when lead-off hitter Harper roped a single over Elizabethton right fielder Maggie Johnson head for a single and as Johnson retrieved the ball at the fence her foot became entrapped in the fence allowing Harper to scoot around the bases and score.

From there, Morristown East tacked on four more runs to take the 5-1 win.

The Lady Cyclones scored their run in the bottom of the third when Macie Herrmann singled with one out. Lauren Brickey followed suit with a single as well putting Herrmann at second base.

A Maci West single allowed Herrmann to race home for ‘Betsy’s only run.

Kaylen Shell, Kira Dillard, Haley Fair, Kellie Cunningham, and Maggie Johnson contributed with a base knock apiece as well.

The score was deceptive as the game was tied 2-2 going into the fifth inning of play before the Lady Cyclones got the bats going in the bottom of the inning to take the 7-2 win.

Maggie Johnson came up with the big hit of the game as she sent a laser shot over the fence for a grand slam to turn a one-run advantage into a five-run contest.

Kaylen Shell was a perfect 4-of-4 from the plate while Maci West batted 3-for-3 accounting for seven of the team’s 11 hits in the contest.

Kira Dillard, Lauren Brickey, Haley Fair, and Johnson collected one hit each in the win.

Unaka was lead by Madison Ensor who batted 2-for-2 in the game with two runs batted in. Erica Potter, Lilly Kiser, Sydney Markland, and Madison Pierce also collected base hits for the Lady Rangers.

With the championship hanging in the balance, the Lady Trojans staked claim early with a three-run home run from their pitcher Frost and never looked back in taking the title over the host Lady Cyclones.

The Lady Cyclones managed only four hits in the contest and got their lone run in the top of the third inning.

Macie Herrmann reached on an error by the East shortstop and advanced to second on a Lauren Brickey single.

A Maci West double chased Herrmann home.

David Crockett finished the tournament in third place with their win.
