In a lopsided loss last week, the Washington County Commanderette softball team (6-13, 2-3) fell by a score of 16-2 against the Bethlehem Banshees (18-6, 6-0)., dropping WC to third place in the 19th District while clinching  the top seed in next month’s tournament for the Banshees.

The 14-run WC loss occurred only a week after Bethlehem defeated the Commanderettes by just four. Bethlehem put the game out of reach early, building a nine-run lead in the first two innings. The Banshees also exploded for 17 total hits in the five-inning contest.The loss to

Bethlehem was the only contest of the week for WC, who will play their next game on Thursday at Bardstown.

Nelson County currently holds second place in the district standings, but if WC were to win its final two district contests of the season, it would equal Nelson’s 4-3 district record. And since WC won the most recent contest between the two teams, it would own the tiebreaker and would move into the No. 2 seed for the tournament.
