Lady Panthers defeat Lady Jets 17-6 Tuesday

CROSSVILLE — The Stone Memorial Lady Panther softball team batted around twice in the third and fourth innings to score 17 runs en route to a 17-6 victory over the CCHS Lady Jets in their District 6AAA opener Tuesday evening on Lady Panther field.

Both teams put a lot of runners on base in the game, before the TSSAA 10-run rule kicked in after 4 1/2 innings.

With two out in the top of the first inning, Bailey Woods doubled off Lady Panther starter Rachel Mathews, while CCHS starter Samantha Hassler walked two Lady Panthers in the bottom half of the inning.

The Lady Jets took a 4-0 lead in the top of the second inning on a walk, two errors and Emily Terpenning's three-run homer.

Hassler allowed two walks in the bottom of the second, but a Erin Dille to Bailey Woods to Tori Kerley double-play erased one baserunner.

Mathews allowed a leadoff double to Bailey Woods in the third, but retired the next three Lady Jets.

SMHS scored six runs in the bottom of the third inning on five walks, a fielder's choice, an error, a wild pitch, a passed ball and singles by Ashley Herbert and Kaitlyn Reagan.

Mathews allowed an unearned run in the top of the fourth inning on an error, singles by Callie Borgialli and Terpenning and a sacrifice fly by Dille to slice the Lady Panther lead to 6-5.

Four straight singles off Hassler by Herbert, Chastity Hancock, Reagan and Mathews plated two runs for an 8-5 advantage.

After Mathews' two-run single, Jordyn Wilson replaced Hassler in the circle, but gave up seven more runs on three walks, two fielder's choices, an error, singles by Kayla Pennycuff and Herbert and doubles by Hancock, Reagan and Penny Cuff as 16 Lady Panthers went to bat in the inning.

Mathews allowed a two-out, solo homer by Hassler in the top of the fifth inning.

Mathews was the winning pitcher, allowing six runs on six hits with four strikeouts and one walk.

Leading hitters for the Lady Panthers were Herbert (three hits, one RBI), Hancock (a single and a double), Reagan (two singles, double, one RBI), Mathews (one hit, three RBIs), Pennycuff (a single, a double, three RBIs) and Katherine Hamby (two RBIs).

Hassler and Wilson allowed 17 runs on 11 hits with 12 walks. Hassler was the losing pitcher.

Terpenning belted a homer and a single with one RBI, while Bailey Woods smacked two doubles. Hassler and Borgialli each had one hit.

The Lady Panthers played at Warren County Thursday for their second district game of the season, while CCHS traveled to Rhea County for their league contest. Both teams play in the Gordonsville Tournament over the weekend in Cookeville.


The Lady Panthers opened their 2014 season with a 13-0 win over the visiting York Lady Dragons April 10.  

Kaitlyn Reagan went two for three with a homerun. Chasity Hancock and Ashley Wilson each had three hits. Kathryn Hamby and Meghan Diem had two hits.

Rachel Mathews, Ashley Herbert and Kayla Pennycuff each had one hit.

Mathews was the winning pitcher, allowing one hit with eight strike outs and no walks.

On April 13, the Lady Panthers traveled to Harriman and came home with a 5-1 victory.

Senior Chasity Hancock led the SMHS hitters, going two for three and knocking two home runs. Ashley Herbert also hit her first career high school home run. Ashley Wilson went two for four. Rachel Mathews threw a no hitter and recorded 10 strike outs.
