Salem Comeback Bid Falls Short

The Salem Community High School Softball team was locked in

a battle with Mt. Vernon Monday afternoon, and while the Lady Wildcats jumped

ahead early, their eventual comeback bid fell short in a 4-3 loss to the Lady

Rams.

Salem jumped out to a 2-0 lead in the first inning only to

see Mt. Vernon answer with three first-inning runs of its own. The Rams added a

fourth run in the second inning before the teams combined for three scoreless

runs in the middle of the game. Salem got a run closer in the sixth inning when

Kelly Sager singled and Heather Henson doubled to put runners at second and

third. A groundout by Miranda Hacuber scored one run but Salem was unable to

push across the tying run.

Mallory Daniels led off the game with her first career high

school homerun. The other Salem run scored when Taylor Jones laced a two-out

RBI double in the first inning. Salem outhit the hosts 7-5 but left five

runners on base.

Daniels pitched the loss, walking two and striking out five.
