CORYDON—Corydon had 19 hits in a 15-run second inning en route to beating Perry Central 25-0 in girls softball Wednesday.

Perry Central also committed three errors in that 40-minute inning.

Perry Central starting pitcher Kristi Brumfield gave up three runs, including a home run, in the first inning.

Then she left the game with a pulled muscle in her arm and was relieved by Cassie Wilgus.

Corydon, 4-0 and ranked 11th in the state in Class 3A, had 24 hits for the game.

“They were hitting shots—line drives,” said Perry Central Coach Mark Rothgerber.

Perry Central collected its only hits, back-to-back singles by Hilarie Hahus and Morgan Gibson, in the fifth inning.

Hahus stole third base and continued home when the catcher’s throw went into left field. But the left fielder threw her out at the plate.

Corydon senior pitcher Jenna Keinsley struck out eight in the five-inning game.

Perry Central, 0-3, will host Tell City today at 4:30 p.m.
