Kori Gutheridge got the start in the circle and went the distance for the win, her 8th of the year. She pitched a great game and didn’t get rattled even when Tusky changed the momentum for a few innings.
The offensive side of the game was led by Zoe Johnson with 2 hits with a home run, Kori Gutheridge with 2 hits and Cassy Donaldson with 2 hits. Sarah Billman had a hit which was a home run. The 2 home runs gives the Lady P’s 36 on the season with Johnson nabbing her 14th and Billman her 5th. Jocelyn Troyer, Emma Gee and Chelsi Rothacher rounded out the hits with 1 each.
Billman ended the day with 4 RBI followed by Johnson with 3. Gutheridge drove in 2 while Donaldson, Troyer, Petitte and Mya Gee each had 1.
Johnson ties the school record with 42 runs scored and Rothacher is right behind her with 40.
The Lady Pirates now wait to see who wins the other District Semi-Final game Wednesday between Newcomerstown and Martin’s Ferry.
Way to go Ladies!
