Franklin County’s Junior Varsity fell on the road Thursday night by a final score of 16-1. The Wildcats struggled to get anything going on offense as the pitching of South Dearborn’s Alley Lunsford kept the hitters at bay. Franklin County also had issues fielding the ball as well, making 4 errors in the field.
One of the highlights on offense for the Wildcats was in the top of the first when the Wildcats took an early lead. Kylie Lea lead off the game for the Wildcats with a walk and then advanced to second on a wild pitch. She would then come into score off of the bat of Emily Wendel who hit a long double into the left center gap to score Lea.
With the loss, the Junior Varsity’s record falls to 8-3 on the year and 6-2 in EIAC play. Franklin County will be back on the diamond on Monday night when they take on Cambridge City in the final home game of the season. First pitch is scheduled to immediately follow the varsity game which begins at 5pm.
