After being washed out by an early spring thunderstorm on Thursday, the lady Cougars and Panthers finally got their chances to claw it out on the softball field at Logan County High School on Friday.

The first softball meeting between the two local teams went to Logan County, 1-0. The LCHS ladies came away with their 3rd win to run their record to 3-5 on the 2016 season. The Russellville lady Panthers are now 5-7.

Throughout most of the game, defense and solid pitching seemed to control the flow. Both teams looked sharp in the field, making several outstanding defensive plays. Logan County 7th grader, Abby Hinton tossed a 5 hit shutout, while striking out 5 lady Panthers. Tara Gilbert picked up the loss for the lady Panthers, but threw a solid game as well. Gilbert struck out 3 while only allowing one run on 7 hits through 6 innings. Brea Croslin got the hitting game started to lead off the bottom of the 1st for the lady Cougars with a single to left. Croslin was tagged out by Russellville’s Cierra Collins while trying to steal second base on the next play. The game’s lone run came in the bottom of the 4th inning when Logan County freshman, Jillian McLellan doubled in Rosie Kerchenski. Brea Croslin led the lady cougars with 2 hits, while Tara Gilbert matched her total for the lady Panthers.

Coming up next for the Russellville team is a trip to Clarksville, Tenn. on Friday, April 8 to face a 5-5 LaRue County team. The Lady Cougars will get a long break before facing the ladies from Todd County (6-6) at home on Tuesday, April 12.
