7-run third powers Hurricane to 15-8 win over Falcons


WILMINGTON — Jaydin Applegate, Allie Martin and Lauren Diels drove in three runs each Monday as Wilmington defeated Clinton-Massie 15-8 in SBAAC American Division softball on the WHS diamond.

Diels, the winning WHS pitcher, belted a three-run homer in the first inning to get WHS off to a flying start. But it was a seven-run third inning that gave the Hurricane some breathing room.

Martin had the first key hit, a two-run single to make it 6-4 WHS. Later in the inning, Applegate roped a double to right that cleared the bases and gave Wilmington a 10-4 lead.

Alyssa Sandlin hit the first high school homerun of her career in the sixth for Clinton-Massie. Karley Goodin had homered in the second for the Falcons.

”I was happy with the way the ladies battled a good Wilmington team,” Massie manager Brandon Lewis said. “We allowed another big inning in the third, giving up seven runs. We have to work to eliminate letting our opponents (have) the big innings. Wilmington has a very good job hitting team and we knew we would have to hit with them, and we know Diels does a good job on the mound.”

Despite the loss, Lewis saw positives at the plate.

“We had some girls hit the ball which was a good thing for us moving forward with our confidence,” he said.
