EC win over BHS gives Lady Astros 2nd place


News Journal



LEES CREEK – Mackenzie Campbell had a bases clearing double in the sixth inning to break open a close game and give East Clinton an 8-2 win over Blanchester in SBAAC National Division softball action.

The win gives East Clinton sole possession of second place in the National Division.

Blanchester is 7-10 overall and 7-5 in the league.

Campbell’s three-run double plated three unearned runs for the Lady Astros.

“Another game where errors cost us,” BHS coach Jamey Grogg said. “When you play a team that puts the as many balls in play as East Clinton does, you have to make plays when you have a chance. I have to give them credit for putting a lot of pressure on us defensively.”
