Bulldogs let opener slip away

INDIANAPOLIS —

Brownsburg’s softball team had the game in hand, but let it slip away.

Leading 4-0 starting the bottom of the seventh inning, the Bulldogs gave up four runs before falling 5-4 in nine innings to Southport in the sectional opener.

“I want it back,” Brownsburg coach Alyssa Huffman said. “I want a few opportunities back but I guess that’s the way it is with any loss.”

Brownsburg appeared to be headed to a meeting with rival Avon Wednesday night, only three outs away before the Cardinals roared back.

A Madison Kendall double to the fence got it started for Southport as they singled three straight time following bringing in three runs. Courtney Lockwood drove in a runner to tie the score at 4-4 after a crazy swing of momentum in the final inning.

“They got a couple of hits which I think flustered us both pitching wise and defensively and then we couldn’t quite recover and we lost the momentum,” Huffman said. “That lack of momentum carried over to our offense and we couldn’t get it going.”

Brownsburg got a single from Carlie Weaver in the eighth and a single from Kelsey Reinhardt in the ninth but the Bulldogs were unable to muster any other offense.

Southport had two outs after its first two at-bats in the ninth inning but would not go away.

Grace Clark got on first after an error fielding, then stole second and the advanced to third after a wild pitch. The next Cardinal batter was walked and Lockwood sent a hard grounder to second base that scored Clark and cued the celebration from the Southport dugout.

The postgame huddle was especially difficult for Huffman to talk with her girls.

“There’s nothing you can say especially to the seniors,” she said. “I just told them we didn’t have enough tonight, enough as a whole team to pull it out together.”
