Park View girls one game away from VHSL state tourney

SoVaNow.com / June 05, 2014
The Park View Lady Dragons softball team defeated Kettle Run, 3-2 on Wednesday in VHSL Region 3A-East semi-final tourney action in Spotsylvania.

The win over Kettle Run means the girls will play Brentsville High School on Friday, June 6 at Park View High School for the Region 3A-East championship.

Game time is yet undetermined but Park View Athletic Director Julia McInturf said she expects the game to start at 4:30 or 5 p.m.

The win assures the Park View girls a place in the VHSL 3A State Softball Tournament, which starts next Friday at Liberty University in Lynchburg.

In Wednesday’s game Park View was up 1-0 entering the seventh inning. Kettle Run held the Lady Dragons scoreless before going on to tie the score in the bottom of the seventh.

Kettle Run’s Debbie Stuart and Shelby Stegmaier each drew walks. Two wild and uncharacteristic pitches by Park View lead hurler, Odicci Alexander allowed Kettle Run to score to tie the game and send it to extra innings.

In the eighth inning, Alexander doubled and advanced to third on a sacrifice bunt. Madison Tucker reached first on an infield error.

Amanda Crutchfield blasted a triple, scoring Alexander and Tucker for the 3-1 lead.

Kettle Run made a final push to win the game but came up just a little short. Kendell Penn drew a walk after which a misplayed ball in the outfield allowed her to reach home for the 3-2 score.

With two outs, Stuart hit a popup to end the game.

Park View began quarterfinal region play on Monday in South Hill, besting Petersburg High School in a 17-0 rout and entered the tournament as the one-seed.
