SHS netters drop match to Cape Central

EAST PRAIRIE -- In varsity softball the East Prairie Lady Eagles knocked off the Scott City Lady Rams by a score of 5-2 on Tuesday. The win improves East Prairie's record to 4-6 on the season.

Adalyn Woodard pitched all seven innings for the Lady Eagles, receiving the win after giving up just two runs on eight hits. She walked one and struck out three in the victory.

Scott City jumped out 2-1 in the fourth inning but the Lady Eagles came right back and put up two runs of their own in the fifth to make the score 3-2.

East Prairie chipped in two more runs in the top of the seventh off the bat of Woodard who plated two runs on a double with the bases loaded. Woodard supported her own cause as she finished the day with three RBIs on a handful of hits.

Blair Peters finished the game 2-for-3 with a single, a double, a run scored and an RBI. Hannah Lemons added one run and an RBI in the victory.

"I was very proud of our effort today," said East Prairie head coach Steve Stokes. "We put together seven solid innings of pitching and defense and hit the ball when we needed to. It was probably the most complete game we've played all season."
