    LYNNVILLE—Wood Memorial scored 13 runs in the first inning en route to a 19-0 win over Cannelton in the first round of the Class A girls softball sectional Monday.
    “We just got off to a horrendous start,” said Cannelton Coach Brian Garrett. “The (strike) zone was a little tight early and Sammie (James, Cannelton’s pitcher) got a little frustrated. And we had some plays we should’ve made but didn’t.
    “When you’re chasing 13 (runs), that’s hard to overcome.”
    Wood Memorial had six hits, including a long three-run homer by Allie Minton, in that inning.

    BRETZVILLE—Tell City had only one hit in a 10-1 first-round Class 2A girls softball sectional loss to North Posey Tuesday.
    “We’ve struggled hitting for a while,” said Tell City Coach John Hayes. “Hana (Reed) obviously hit .458, so she’s going to put the ball in play. But we couldn’t put anything together.”
    The game started well for the Marksmen, as they scored the game’s first run in the bottom of the first inning.
    Reed reached base on an error by the third baseman and advanced to third on Julie Lindauer’s double over the center fielder’s head.
