Late-game push nets win for Seymour

SEYMOUR — The Seymour Warriorettes recorded a 6-5 win over the Moulton-Udell Lady Eagles on Monday. The victory wasn’t without some late-game heroics from Seymour in the final inning of the contest.

A two-out rally netted three runs for Seymour in the bottom of the seventh inning, giving them a walk off win.

The Warriorettes climbed to a two-run lead after the first inning. However, Moulton-Udell took control and led 4-2 after three innings of play. Seymour added a run in the fifth while Moulton responded with a run of their own in the sixth to make the score 5-3 heading into the final six outs of the game.

When it came down to the end of the game, it was a freshman and an eighth grader who helped drive in two of the three seventh inning runs to win.

“We played scared until the seventh inning,” Seymour head softball coach Krista Tuttle said. “I was so proud of Maggie [Helmick] and Faye [Bland], that’s a lot of pressure for a freshman and eighth grader.”

Freshman Jocey Parham picked up the win from the pitching circle, throwing the final four innings allowing four hits and just one run. Parham also led from the offensive side, going 2-for-4 with a double and three RBIs.

Helmick ended the day with a 3-for-4 plate performance with two RBIs.

For Moulton-Udell, freshman Addison Westercamp was 2-for-4 with two RBIS, while Maddie Newland, Katie Selvy and Jessie Simons all had a double and an RBI in the game.

On Thursday, May 29, Seymour won their opening game 8-0 over Mormon Trail.

Parham also earned the win in that game, going all seven innings allowing just three hits, throwing five strikeouts and allowing no walks or runs.

Mitchell was 3-for-3 with a double while Parhman and Enright both had a double and knocked in two runs each.
