Momentum is everything in sports, especially when you’re heading into post-season play. After reeling off three straight wins, the Washington County Commanderettes have dropped their last four games, including a 13-7 loss to Danville last Tuesday and a 6-5 home loss to E-Town on Thursday.
The WC girls got the early lead against the Lady Admirals, scoring twice in the top of the second to jump out to a 2-0 lead. The Commanderettes added another pair in the fourth to take a 4-0 advantage.
In the bottom of the fourth, the Lady Ads plated seven runs to take the lead.
Danville added one run in the fifth to go up 8-4.
Three runs for Washington County crossed the plate in the top of the sixth, but Danville put the game away with five more runs in the bottom of the frame to take a 13-7 lead into the WC seventh.
The Commanderettes were held scoreless in the seventh and they left Danville with the loss.
The Commanderettes hosted the Elizabethtown Panthers on Thursday, and once again, despite taking an early lead, WC fell to E-Town, 6-5.
In the bottom of the second, WC got on the board with a sacrifice by Olivia Thompson that scored Kelly Hill who reached on a single. The second run in the inning came on a fielder’s choice by Zana Yocum to knock in Meagan Spalding, who also reached on a single.
