A couple of Lady Yoe errors and a two-run single from Madison Stefek gave the Lady Eagles a 3-0 lead before Cameron had a chance to bat.

The Yoe got one run back as their leadoff hitter homered on the first pitch of the game from the Lady Eagles’ Kylie Hobbs. The next batter got a single. That was about it; the next Yoe hit came with one out in the sixth inning. Hobbs limited the Yoe to three hits, while striking out seven.

The Lady Eagle attack was stymied in the second inning. The third inning featured a scoreboard clearing home run by Hobbs as the Lexington lead was extended to 4-1. The fourth inning spelled Waterloo for Cameron. Heaven Von Rosenberg started the inning with a one-by-out single. Patschke singled, Courtney Strain had a single, and Hobbs walked to force in a run, setting the stage for an unfortunate incident.

Instead, the ball missed her glove allowing the ball to hit the young lady near the eye with the full, downward force. It knocked her to the ground immediately with blood coming from the eye area. A concussion is probable and unknown procedures related to the bleeding were anticipated. Play was stopped as soon as the young lady hit the ground.

When play resumed, Johnson was awarded first base and an RBI. Stefek reached on an error as another run scored. Alexis Gonzales singled home two more runs, Amanda Zgabay reached on an error, Kynslie Meyer reached on a fielder’s choice, Von Rosenberg singled for the second time in the inning. When the dust had cleared, Lexington had posted six runs making the score 10-1 Lexington.

With Hobbs posting zeros on the Cameron side of the score board, Lexington put an end to the game in the sixth-inning. Brittany Krenek was hit by a pitch. Von Rosenberg smacked a liner down the third base line and into the corner of the field. As the Yoe fielder tried to gather the ball, it hit something, bouncing away as Krenek sped toward home. Krenek scored just before Von Rosenberg was tagged out at third trying to stretch the double into a triple.

The Lady Eagles are now 10-2 in district play and will host Rockdale Thursday night in their final, scheduled home game of the season.
