The Charlestown Lady Pirate Softball team (3-2 & 1-1 MSC) hosted the North Harrison Lady Kats Wednesday evening and jumped out to a 6-2 lead before allowing sixth inning rally by the visitors.  North Harrison tied the game in the top of the sixth, scored the winning run off two ninth inning doubles, then held Charlestown in the bottom of the ninth to steal the win and move to 2-4 & 1-0 MSC.  Mackenzie Smith finished the game three of four, including a double, plating two runs; Carly Price two of three, including a double and a run scored; and Kaitlynn Henning finished two for four.  Carly Price began the game in the circle and was relieved by Kendall Cline in the middle of the top of the sixth inning.  The Lady Pirate Junior Varsity team topped North Harrison in the second game, 6-5.  The Lady Pirates are scheduled to travel to Scottsburg on Thursday for a 5:00 pm start.
