The Clarksville Angels X-Play All-Stars bested Blackstone 5-2 on Saturday in a closely-contested opening round district tournament game.

Clarksville’s Kensley Neal blasted a double to start the top of the first. The next three batters for Clarksville were not as fortunate and closed out the top of the first with two strikeouts and a put-out at first base.

Clarksville picked up its offense in the second inning, posting three runs. Neah Tucker reached base on a hit and error and Kennedy Poole drew a walk.

Clarksville’s next two batters went down on strikes but Addyson Faucette followed with a walk. Ketonna Terry stroked a single; Tucker, Poole and Faucette went on to score for the 3-0 lead.

In the bottom of the inning, Blackstone picked up a run after getting the leadoff batter on base and the next three batters were walked for the 3-1 score.

Iyana Tinsdale scored in the third after drawing the walk to get on base. Neal popped out to the pitcher, Aubree Wilbourne and Alizoa Hatcher were walked and Tucker hit into a fielder’s choice.

Blackstone posted its final run in the bottom of the third for the 4-2 score in Clarksville’s favor.

In the fourth inning Hayley Vaughan hit a single, while Faucette drew the walk. Vaughan made it to third base and Faucette to second but both were left on base.

Clarksville posted its final run of the game in the fifth inning. Erin Cranfill scored after gaining the walk. Clarksville’s next three batters — Tinsdale, Neal and Wilbourne — were also walked to plate Cranfill for the 5-2 win.

Clarksville moved on to play Prince Edward-Farmville, winner over Crewe-Burkeville, 14-11, in the opening round.
