Pike Central downs Marksmen

-A A +A

PETERSBURG—Tell City’s hitting is better than it was early in the season but the Marksmen still lost to Pike Central 8-1 in PAC softball Wednesday.
Jessie Wheatley and Brenee Leibering each went 2 for 3 and Shannon Bryant hit a triple to lead Tell City’s six-hit attack.
Bryant hit her triple to right field in the third inning and scored on Leibering’s single to center.
Making better contact has helped Tell City’s hitting, as the Marksmen struck out only three times in this game.
Pike Central had 12 hits, though, and also took advantage of six walks and four Tell City errors.
Sydney Goffinet pitched the first three innings for Tell City to take the loss.
She gave up eight runs on 10 hits and five walks and struck out none.
Bryant pitched the last three innings, giving up no runs on two hits and one walk and striking out none.
Tell City is 0-18 overall and 0-8 in the PAC.
