Sports : Trenton softball wins District 15 title, 5-2 over Cameron
Posted by Tom on 2012/10/8 15:40:00 (311 reads) News by the same author

The Trenton Lady Bulldog softball team, on the strength of a four-run third inning rally, beat nemesis Cameron 5-2 on Saturday morning, winning the Class 3, District 15 championship at Excelsior Springs High School, in a game broadcast on KTTN FM 92.3 and www.kttn.com.

After two scoreless innings, the THS offense got to Cameron starter Ashley Wills in a big way in the top of the third inning, denting the Dragons starter for four runs.

With one hit, Maddie Hooyman ripped a triple into right-center field, and was driven home on the very next pitch, as catcher Madi Trump hit a shot to left-center that barely stayed in the park, hitting the wall for an RBI double.

With Trump at second base, Scotlin Hurley walked before Avery Whitaker popped out. However, the rally would continue, with Makaila Capeder cracking a two-run double that scored Trump and Hurley, with Kate Lowrey following with a single that scored Capeder.

Trenton added a run to the advantage in the fifth inning, as Trump was hit by a pitch, went to second on a single by Scotlin Hurley, moved to third on an error, and scored on a fielder's choice grounder off the bat of Whitaker.

Cameron scored single runs in the fifth and seventh inning, and twice had the potential tying run at home plate in the bottom of the seventh, but a ground ball to Trenton second baseman McKinley Hurley ended the contest, and gave THS its third district title in the past four years, but its first as a Class 3 softball school.

Trenton, with the win, advances to play St. Joseph Benton on Wednesday night at 5 o'clock at Heritage Park's Field #3 in St. Joseph. That Class 3 sectional game will be heard live on Hot Country Z 101.7 and www.kgozfm.com, with pregame at 4:45. Tom Johnson will provide the audio play-by-play coverage, with Dan Maxey providing video webstreaming from our 'Internet TV' link.
