SOFTBALL

PORTAGEVILLE -- After a scoreless first inning the Portageville Lady Bulldogs bats caught fire in the bottom of the second and the Portageville team was on it's way to a 11-0 five inning blowout of the previously undefeated Kennett Lady Indians.

Rebecca Cayton lead the hitting barrage for the Lady Bulldogs in the second with a single to center. Lauren Kellams advanced her with a single of her own. Mary Hannah Fisher loaded the bases with a single through the infield. Nicole Branch collected 2 RBIs with another single to right field.

Katlyn Underwood hit another sharp single to center and plated another Portageville run. With the bases still loaded DeAnna Deere plated three more runs with a screamer to left field. That ran the score to 6-0 after 2 inning. That would be more than enough for the Bulldogs who would add five in the fifth to enforce the ten run rule. Portageville was victorious, 11 - 0.

PERRYVILLE -- The Sikeston Lady Bulldogs soccer team fell on the road at Perryville Tuesday night, 2-0 to the Lady Pirates.

After a scoreless first half, Perryville's Amber Hacker scored the first goal of the game at 62:00 on a free kick.

The Lady Pirates put the game out of reach at the 71:00 mark on a goal by Chelsea Marr, assisted by Hacker.

Sikeston was only outshot by two, 18-16 in the contest. Paige Silverthorn was back in goal for the Lady Bulldogs and recorded 16 saves.

"It's the third time we've played them and our third loss to them," said Sikeston head coach Derrick Long. "But each game has been close. We had some chances, but didn't finish. Towards the end of the game we started getting a little lazy and they capitalized on our mistakes."

In the junior varsity game, Sikeston and Perryville ended in a 0-0 tie. The JV Lady Bulldogs have a record of 2-2-1.

Sikeston (7-10) hosts Notre Dame today at 5 p.m.
