South Hill Ponytails get so close to title

SoVaNow.com / July 03, 2013


The All-Star Ponytails of South Hill came within one run of winning the District 1 championship in Clarksville this week — surrendering a late lead to Crewe-Burkeville to lose to the eventual champs Tuesday night by a 3-2 score.

The game was hard-fought and marked by a willingness by both teams to do whatever it took to capture the crown in the Ponytails division (ages 11-12). For a while, it looked as though the odds favored South Hill.

The All-Stars scored two runs in the first inning behind a Madison Ezell single and Asia Tanner being hit by a pitch.

The count remained 2-0 until the fourth inning, when Crewe-Burkeville scored three runs as Regan Ware, Destiny Jones and Ginny Rainey got on base. After Ware came home, Amaya Meekins’ blast to left field drove in Jones and Rainey and gave Crewe-Burkeville all the runs it would need to take home a stunning victory.

The Crewe-Burkeville All-St ars will go on to compete in the Ponytails state championship in Goochland starting July 12.

South Hill finished as tournament runners-up.
