Clarksville Ponytails play for district title

SoVaNow.com / June 26, 2019

The Clarksville Ponytails have had a very solid Dixie District 1 softball tournament run and were scheduled to play for the district championship on Tuesday night.

Clarksville was undefeated through Saturday but found themselves in need of another win after dropping their game Sunday. Clarksville and South Hill battled on Monday night with Clarksville getting the 8-7 win to advance. South Hill moved out to a 4-0 lead in the first inning; Clarksville would need the entire six innings to rally for the win.

The team opened the tournament with a convincing 10-0 win over Lunenburg. Clarksville’s Aliza Hatcher got the win from the circle.

Clarksville put three runners on base in the first inning but couldn’t plate a runner. Clarksville had a great second inning posting six runs. Arianna Toliver moved to first after being hit by a pitch.

With one out Hailey Vaughan singled, sending Toliver home; Addyson Faucette, Erin Cranfield and Taylor Davidson walked. With two down, three more Clarksville batters drew walks: Kensley Neal, Hatcher, and Kennedy Poole. Hatcher and Poole were left on base.

Clarksville posted one run in the third by Toliver; one in the fourth by Neal and two runs in the sixth by Toliver and Kaylin Seamans to take the 10-0 win.

Clarksville came back Saturday night and won over Dinwiddie.

The team’s title run reached a critical stage with the 8-7 win over South Hill on Monday night. Hatcher pitched for the win, with Faucette coming in to close out the SH offense.
