Lady Pirate Softball Advances to BNL Tourney Championship

Charlestown Lady Pirate Softball traveled to Lawrence County Indiana Friday and Saturday to participate with seven other local teams in the Bedford-North Lawrence High School Battle for the Rock Softball Tournament.  Charlestown dispatched Mitchell in the tourney opener Friday 8-0; courtesy of Leah Sherrill’s two-run homer in the bottom of the first, and Carly Price’s two-run single to help the Pirates to a 6-0 lead after two innings.  Carly Price finished the game with seven strikeouts from the circle.  The win set Charlestown up with a 10am Saturday showdown with New Albany, who finished 1-0 in their tourney pool.  The Lady Pirates (3-1) earned their third straight shut out against the Lady Bulldogs, with a 3-0 decision.  Price pitched the complete shutout, striking out nine New Albany batters and allowing just two hits.  Brooke Adams hit a solo home run in the top of the 6th to extend the Pirate lead to 2-0.  Bethany Hall finished the game 3 for 4 from the plate, with an RBI.  Hall’s RBI scored Lexi Logsdon, after she hit a two out double in the top of the 7th to make it a 3-0 advantage.

The Lady Pirates now advance to Saturday evening’s 7 pm Battle of the Rock Championship game versus host Bedford-North Lawrence, at Bedford-North Lawrence High School.  The Stars advanced to the final courtesy of a 7-1 Friday win over Scottsburg, and a 10-8 win over North Harrison Saturday morning.  Pirate Nation, if you can’t make it to tonight’s Softball Game, catch @CPPSB score updates via
