Davis County edges Lady Mohawks

After holding an early 5-0 lead on Tuesday, the Moravia Lady Mohawks fell 9-8 against the Davis County Lady Mustangs.

The game was played at Redette Field in Centerville instead of the originally scheduled location in Bloomfield. After Davis County’s game with the Redettes was suspended due to lightning on Monday, they moved the remainder of the game to Tuesday.

Instead of canceling the varsity game between Davis County and Moravia, the intent was to bring all three teams together for a triangular at Redette Field. Moravia ended up deciding against playing Centerville. So instead, Centerville finished up their game against Davis County and then Davis County ended the night playing Moravia.

A lead-off walk drawn by Sam Williams would lead to Moravia’s first run of the game. After Cheyenne Maddy walked, they would both score on an error by the centerfielder.

In the top of the third inning, Wenger drew in Autumn McDanel with a single to centerfield. Sam Williams and Wenger would score Moravia’s fourth and fifth runs of the game when DeEtta Waybill reached base on an error by the Davis County short stop.

Davis County would narrow the deficit down to just one run with a four-run third inning. After a scoreless top of the fourth for Moravia, Davis County took the lead for the first time with a two-run half inning, giving them a 6-5 lead after four innings.

In the top of the sixth, the Lady Mohawks would regain the lead. Maddy was hit-by-a-pitch to start the inning while Waybill drew a walk. A single to left field by Payton Rogers would score Maddy to tie the game at 6-6.

After a groundout, Maddy hit a one-out single to left field to score Waybill. Emma McDanel’s two-out single would score Rogers to give Moravia an 8-6 lead.
