Fort White nips Lady Indians

-A A +A
By Claude Lewis

The Chiefland High girls softball team saw bad judgement on the basepaths snatch away a chance at victory last Thursday night, March 27, as visiting Fort White scored twice in the seventh for a 3-1 victory.

The Lady Indians lost their third straight and watched their record dip to 6-8.

It was senior night with Amye Grieves, Brooke Williams, Cassie Labat, Hagen Lewis and Jerrica Grimsley all taking a bow before the game.

Chiefland came to the plate in the bottom of the sixth looking at a 1-0 deficit. The first two runners reached base, as Janessa Barrios walked and Amie Biehl singled. Amye Grieves was next. She showed bunt, but the pitch was a ball. Barrios was caught too far off second for out number one and Fort White finished the double play by getting Biehl between first and second.

Grievs ended up getting a single and Brooke Williams followed with a double to tie the game at 1-1.

And to think what might have happened without the double play.

Chiefland threatened again in the seventh with two on and one out. A strikeout and throw to first caught the runner sleeping, thus ending the game.
