Late rally pushes Cats past ChargersMarch 24, 2019
From Herald Staff Reports
The Jasper softball team sure has had their fair share of dramatic finishes lately.
After walking off winners last Thursday with a hit by pitch against Owensboro Apollo (Ky.), the Cats had themselves another thrilling victory on Saturday afternoon against Pike Central.
The Chargers and Wildcats were tied 3-3 entering the 7th inning when Jasper freshman Megan Matheis came into the game to pinch hit. She sent a ball over the wall to give Jasper a 5-3 lead and the Cats wouldn’t relinquish the lead again.
Jasper tacked on two more runs to make it 7-3 and Mia Werner set the Chargers down in the bottom of the seventh inning to help the Cats improve to 3-1 on the young season.
Werner is now 3-1 for the season on the mound as she gave up just six hits while striking out three and walking none. Grace Colvin, Lexie Jerger, Hannah Schwenk and Werner all had multiple hits for the Cats while Colvin went 3-for-4 at the plate to help pace the Jasper offense.
