Liberty came into Friday’s Carroll County Athletic League softball matchup with South Carroll trying to keep its success going, after starting the season 0-5 but winning back-to-back county games over the last week.
The host Cavaliers entered play hoping to end a three-game losing streak and get back on track, with six defeats in their last seven games.
The rivals will have to wait a little longer to settle things — Friday’s contest got through 2 ½ innings before umpires halted play because field conditions were becoming unsafe amid soggy conditions in Winfield.
When the schools can agree on a makeup date, the contest will resume with South Carroll leading 8-5 coming up to bat in the third inning.
Statistics won’t become official until the game is completed, but the Cavaliers (2-7, 2-5 CCAL) batted around in the second and led 8-0 behind a three-run double from junior Allysah Davis. Hailey Wolfrey tripled in the second and drove in a run, and fellow freshman Stephanie Zirkenbach added a double for SC.
Davis laced an RBI triple in the first inning and later scored on a wild pitch, giving South Carroll a 2-0 lead.
Liberty (2-5, 2-3) didn’t wilt despite an early deficit. The Lions sent 11 batters to the plate in the third inning and collected five runs. Jordan Nastos drilled her second triple in the inning, and Liberty took advantage of four Cavs errors.
