Orioles edge Raiders

AVON — After taking a one run lead in the bottom of the first inning, the Avon Orioles softball team held off visiting Hoosier Crossroads Conference rival Harrison Thursday night.

Avon (12-4, 4-0 conf.) had a few hiccups along the way that might have cost them the victory, but instead, the Orioles focused in when necessary and came away with a 1-0 win over the Raiders.

“We’ll take it,” Avon coach Jenny Shayotovich said with a smile. “We made some mistakes, but the team made plays when they had to.”

After shutting down the Raiders in the top of the first, leadoff hitter Hannah Reeser singled for the Orioles. Hannah Goddard grounded out but advanced Reeser to second.

Harrison pitcher Kalyn Revord walked Taylar Kelso and Reeser then advanced to third on a passed ball, putting runners at the corners. Lizzy Snodgrass’ single brought Reeser home for the lone run of the game.

The Orioles would not get another hit until the bottom of the fifth as Revord was pitching pretty well with good movement on the ball.

“(Revord) has struggled a bit and we were really hoping for this to happen with the ball moving and her throwing hard,” Harrison coach Dick Mitchell said.

Harrison also played well defensively, completing two double plays and produced some timely defensive stops when Avon looked to open up a larger lead.

“We’re really young with only two seniors in the defense and we make great plays, but sometimes boot the easy ones,” Mitchell said.

Avon started with junior Alexandria Anderson on the mound and she went five innings with four Ks before Snodgrass closed the door on Harrison.

“Alex did a great job and has been very effective hitting her spots,” Shayotovich said. “Anytime you can give hitters a different look a couple of times in the lineup it helps. They’re really getting into a rhythm and make a nice balance.”
