Softball Roundup- Camdenton, Eldon, Versailles and Macks Creek
Camdenton comes up short against Lebanon
Lebanon did most of its damage in the first inning Monday night and Camdenton could not quite recover as the Lakers fell to the Yellowjackets 4-2.
Lebanon scored three of its four runs in the first inning and added an insurance run in the seventh. Camdenton put together both of its runs in the third as Zoe Lockhert drove in two runs with one of Camdenton’s three hits on the night. Jamiee Hendrix and Kylee More provided the other two hits for the Lakers.
In the circle, Gracie Coffelt got the start and went all seven innings allowing four runs, two earned, on six hits with a trio of strikeouts and four walks. The Laker defense had four errors in the contest.
Camdenton (2-12, 0-4 Ozark Conference) will host Hillcrest Wednesday at 4:30 p.m.
Eldon falls at Capital City
It has been a busy time for the Eldon Mustangs.
After missing a couple of weeks due to COVID-19 quarantine, the Mustangs have made up some missed games with the Branson Tournament and another battle at Capital City Monday night. Eldon finished 2-2 in the Branson Tournament with wins over Hillcrest and Aurora and losses to Lebanon and Seneca and the Mustangs ran into a tough Cavaliers team Monday night with a 12-1 defeat.
Capital City was simply consistent with the bats on the offensive end with seven hits and managed to take advantage of seven Eldon errors. Savanha Holder provided Eldon’s lone hit of the evening and also started in the circle where she went four innings and recorded a single strikeout.
Eldon (3-8, 0-1 Tri-County Conference) was scheduled to host Smith-Cotton on Tuesday and will stay busy hosting Southern Boone on Wednesday at 5 p.m.
Versailles shut out by Blair Oaks
After displaying plenty of offense in the Weaubleau Tournament over the weekend, the Versailles bats were a little cold Monday night as the Tigers fell to Blair Oaks 7-0.
Versailles finished the weekend tournament 2-1 with an 8-7 loss to Marion C. Early, a 20-1 win over Macks Creek and a 24-4 win over Wheatland, totaling 51 total runs in three games.
