Ike falls at Rocky Grove, Youngsville downed by Titusville

SUGAR CREEK-Eisenhower fell to 0-4 in Region 5 with a five inning, 10-0, loss to Rocky Grove on Monday.

Jocelyn Courtney made her varsity debut in the circle for the Lady Knights, taking the loss despite allowing just six hits and no earned runs.

“We’re just struggling to make the timely outs in the field,” said Eisenhower coach R.J. Williams.

Courtney had a pair of hits to lead Ike offensively while Haylie Birt and Dakota Williams added one hit each.

The Lady Knights are back in action Thursday at Iroquois.

Titusville 12, Youngsville 6

TITUSVILLE-A late rally wasn’t enough for the Lady Eagles to top Region 5-foe Titusville on Monday, as they fell by a score of 12-6.

“We couldn’t get the runs across,” said Youngsville coach Ron Jameson. “We had runners on every inning, we just couldn’t come up with that timely hit.”

Jessie Jameson was 3-for-3 and Kennedy Cratty was 2-for-4 to lead Youngsville.

Cratty singled home a pair of runs in the fourth and Elyssa Horn knocked in another to cut into the Rockets’ lead. Jameson brought in one with a single in the sixth and came around to score on a Katie Gustafson sacrifice fly, but the Lady Eagles couldn’t come any closer as they fall 1-4 overall and 1-3 in Region 5.

Youngsville is at Sheffield tomorrow in a non-region game.
