Devilettes fare well crossing state line

A trip out of state did nothing to slow down South Fulton.
The Devilettes ran their winning streak to eight and improved their already-impressive mark to 27-4 with a 10-0 whitewash of homestanding Ballard Memorial at LaCenter.
In other games involving local teams from Tuesday, Obion Central dropped a 3-1 decision at Covington, while Union City lost by the same score to visiting Huntingdon.
Details are as follows:
SF 10, Ballard Mem. 0
South Fulton enjoyed a pleasant ride home from Kentucky after scoring seven runs in the third to continue its winning ways.
Kacie Daugherty had two hits, two stolen bases and an RBI to pace SF’s 11-hit attack. Haley McKinney had a single, a triple and drove in three runs, while Macey Maxwell singled twice and had a ribbie.
McKinney is now 15-2 after twirling a three-hit shutout. She fanned six and walked three.
South Fulton will host Greenfield for a twinbill on Thursday, then welcome Union City for a single game Friday.
Covington 3, OC 1
The Lady Rebels dropped their first District 13AA game after seven victories in their regular season finale.
OC (30-11 overall) will not play again until the league tournament begins next week.
Covington scored all its runs in the bottom of the first and limited Central to just a third-inning tally and four total hits in avenging an earlier setback vs. the county locals.
Payton Robertson had the Lady Rebels’ lone extra-base hit, a two-bagger. Rachel Jones had Obion Central’s only RBI, while she, Carly Whipple and Kayla Bramlett had singles.
Macy Allison (17-8) was saddled with the pitching loss. She struck out three, did not walk a batter and gave up six hits.
Huntingdon 3, UC 1
The Fillies scored a run in the second inning and two more in the fifth while limiting Union City to just four hits Tuesday afternoon at Eddlemon Hawks Field.
UC’s lone run came in the sixth frame when Tory Reedy drove in Brittany Parker.
Parker had two of Union City’s four hits with a double and single, while both Reedy and Ashley Faught singled.
The Lady Tornadoes (17-9) host Gibson County today.
