The Lexington fast-pitch softball team won an important District game on Monday.
The ‘Dawgs beat the Prague Red Devils, 6-4, and showed how they are still competing hard despite injuries to key players.
“We are still not playing our best ball right now,” said Lexington head coach Kayla Stewart. “I’m hoping we can figure it out for later in the season when it matters the most.”
Lexington scored all of its runs in the bottom of the second inning.
Third baseman Emilee Jenks went 2-for-3 with a triple and three runs batted in against the Red Devils.
Maddy Pack hit a solo home run in the contest for the ‘Dawgs.
Shortstop Lauren Beason had a hit as did Hannah Robbins. Kaylee Fink (the starting pitcher) contributed two hits to the Lexington attack.
Fink was effective within the circle as she scattered nine hits and allowed two walks while striking out six Prague hitters.
Lexington might be hurting at the moment but the ‘Dawgs are still in good shape in the District 3A-3 standings.
Through Tuesday, the Washington Warriors were in first in the District with a 19-4 overall record and a district record of 8-0. Prague was next at 17-7 overall and 5-2 in district play.
Lexington is now 7-9 overall and 3-2 in district play. They will play again at 5 p.m. today (Thursday) against district opponent Meeker before playing at Washington at 5:30 p.m. on Monday.
