WILMINGTON — An early 1-0 lead for Wilmington didn’t stand as Clinton-Massie rallied for a 5-1 win Friday in SBAAC American Division play.
The win lifts Massie to 2-2 in league play, 7-3 overall.
Wilmington falls to 1-5 in the American and 2-7 in all games.
Kayla Drake had four hits, including a homerun for the Falcons. Sydney Doyle and Laila Davis had two hits each.
“It was really good to see Laila come up with a big hit in the fourth to help kick-start our offense,” CM manager Brandon Lewis said. “Much improved as well on the defensive side, as well as making some really good plays in the infield and outfield.”
Clinton-Massie was credited with 14 errors in a loss to Western Brown earlier in the week.
Kiera Brightman picked up the win in the circle for Clinton-Massie.
“She did a really good job pitching ahead and throwing strikes,” Lewis said. “Her control was really good.”
Toria Willis, WHS pitcher, gave up just three earned runs. Wilmington led 1-0 through four complete innings with Willis in control.
