    The Washington County Commanderettes used a nine-run rally to come from behind to beat the Bethlehem Banshees 11-9 Monday night to advance to the district finals on Tuesday.

    The win also assures them of a slot in the regional tournament.

    The Banshees took the early lead, going up 4-1 in the second inning. The Commanderettes added a run in the fourth as Meagan Spalding scored on a sacrifice by Olivia Thompson.

  • Season over for Commanders

    The season came to an end Tuesday night for the Washington County Commanders as they fell 7-4 to Nelson County in the first round of 19th District Playoffs.

    The Cardinals struck first with three runs in the top of the first, but WC answered with three of their own to tie it up after one inning.

    The game quieted down until the bottom of the third, when the Commanders loaded the bases and Fergus McCain scored the go ahead run on a passed ball.

    Last Tuesday, Washington County pitcher Kelly Hill no-hit the Marion County Lady Knights. But some costly errors allowed the Lady Knights to win 5-4 at Idle Hour Park.

    The Commanderettes got off to a 3-0 start through the first two innings, but errors plagued WC in the third, allowing Marion County to plate four on a series of passed balls.

    WC tied it up in the fifth on a pair of hits, but Marion took a 5-4 lead in the top of the sixth and held on for the win.

    The Washington County Commanders are finding themselves in a tough spot. A 12-2 win over Bardstown in six innings last Tuesday improved their district record to 4-3, slightly ahead of 3-3 Nelson County.

    That sets up a first-round district tournament game against the Cardinals, who have beaten WC 14 out of their last 15 meetings. WC beat Nelson 10-2 on May 1.

    Commander pitcher Joseph Hamilton got the win and senior shortstop Joe Joe Simms went four-for-four.
