Lady Rebels crash Ripley system with road rout

Lady Rebels crash Ripley system with road rout
If the local baseball and softball fields were computers, there might have been a system overload on Wednesday due to the sheer volume of runs scored.
The Obion Central softball team routed Ripley 13-1.
Casey Russell smacked a grand slam, while Brandi Goodman knocked a three-run homer during that win.
Meanwhile, Dresden was a run better than the South Fulton baseball team in a 21-20 slugfest.
Today’s prep slate (weather permitting) has SF at Obion Central for a 4:30 game.
The only softball game of the evening has OC on the road at Gibson County.
OC 13, Ripley 1
Aside from the homers from Russell and Goodman, Central (16-10) had other big bats.
Olivia Grady and Meaghen Strayhorn both were 2-for-3 for the Lady Rebels. Grady doubled as did Mandi McDaniel and Laura Beth Shelton.
Winning pitcher Emily Taylor struck out eight.
Dresden 21, SF 20
South Fulton (6-14-1) reached a season-high in the runs department, but the Red Devils also committed seven errors.
Red Devil Chance Hamlin was a home run short of the cycle with a 3-for-4 outing and five RBI.
Ryan Prince was 2-for-4 with four ribbies, while Sam Curtis and Caleb Turner each had two hits as well. Curtis drove in a pair, while Turner plated one.
Harrison Hawks and Kendall Greer both drove in two.
Josh Clement was the losing pitcher.
