Lady Trojans survive John Glenn rally
John Glenn plated two runs in the top of the seventh, but it wasn’t enough to crawl back from an early five-run deficit, and Triton escaped the Falcons in a 7-6 Northern State Conference thriller in Bourbon Wednesday.
Glenn scored on a single by Holly Adams and an error in the fourth inning, a groundout by Brittany Snodgrass in the fifth inning, and a two-run error in the seventh inning. Still, Glenn couldn’t catch the Trojans.
Krystal Sellers went 2-for-2 officially at the plate to pace the Trojans, singling in the first inning and doubling in the sixth inning. She also drew another two walks at the game and finished with two runs and an RBI.
Although the Falcons plated six runs for the game, only one was earned as the Trojans finished with seven errors in the win.
Mallorie Jennings struck out five, while surrendering three walks and six hits for the complete-game win.
The Trojans never trailed after scoring two runs in the first on an RBI double by Brycelyn Garbison and an error.
A one-run second inning helped bring the Falcons within one, but the threat came to an end when Jennings finally got Nicole Dombek to ground out to preserve a 2-1 Triton lead.
The Trojans broke the game open with four runs in the third. Jennings got Triton started with a double, scoring Sellers and Hannah Jennings. Allyson Brown followed with another double, plating Mallorie Jennings to push the advantage out to 6-1.
