Prairie Heights Senior Trinity Pratt gets congratulated by her teammates. She scored two home runs in their win over Churubusco.
BRUSHY PRAIRIE, IN - It was a nail biter softball win for the varsity Lady Prairie Heights Panthers Tuesday night as they played host to the Churubusco Eagles.
Prairie Heights sealed the deal 5-4 in the 7th inning.
Panther Senior Trinity Pratt had a bat of fire hitting 2 home runs in the game. She had an opportunity for a third home run in the 6th inning stretch, but the Busco Eagles didn’t take a chance and opted to automatically walk her to first base.
A game changing moment on defense for the Panthers was when third baseman Ella Coney caught a fly ball and then hurled it to first base that was being backed up by second baseman Olivia Boots for a double out.
Stats for the Panthers include:
-Trinity Pratt, 2/2 with 2 HRs, 4 RBIs, 1 SB, 5 IP with 0 ER and 5 Ks
-Emily McCrea 1/4 with a double and 1 SB, 2 IP with 0 ER and 3 Ks
-Savana Phares 2/2 and 1 SB
-Olivia Boots 1/3 with a triple
-Lilli Howe 1/3
The Lady Panthers will be at home again on Thursday night as they host another NECC team, the Fairfield Falcons.
