Hawks clip Orioles for championship

INDIANAPOLIS — Friday evening’s sectional final contest with Decatur Central just wasn’t the Avon Orioles softball team’s night. The Orioles made uncharacteristic errors that put them in too big of a hole to climb out of and the Hawks took advantage, winning 8-3.

“We just didn’t have our best stuff tonight, we really didn’t,” Avon coach Jenny Shayotovich said. “We still fought. We still tried to get back in it. (Decatur) played a great, flawless game and made some really great plays. That’s what you have to do win.”

Avon started off in a precarious position as the Hawks loaded up the bases with two outs before Cassidy Larkin pulled in a long fly ball to center, ending the top of the first.

Decatur tacked two runs on in the second thanks in part to two errors by the Orioles’ defense and never relinquished the lead.

The Hawks added two more runs in the third and led 4-0 before Avon was able to respond.

The Orioles put up four hits in the third and scored three runs to pull within one of the Hawks.

Sophomore Hannah Goddard was the first Avon batter to record a hit. Avon freshman Brittany Whiteside reached first on an error during the next at-bat and Goddard advanced to second.

Avon’s Sadie Foster and Mackenzie Johnston plated the two base runners on their ensuing at-bats and Avon began to rally. Hannah Reeser’s double brought home Johnston before the Hawks could close the door on the third and Avon trailed by one, 4-3.

That was a close at the Orioles would get.

“We just didn’t seem to be in sync the whole game,” Shayotovich said. “Sometimes you can recover from that and sometimes you can’t and we just couldn’t really get over the hump. I thought when we got the three runs we were going to come right back and we just had some other breaks not go our way.”
