Some games can be fun to watch and others can get uglier than a mud fence. That was the case in Johnson County’s 14-4 win over Happy Valley on Monday.
There wasn’t anything ugly about Johnson County’s performance, only the game itself.
The Warriors banged out nine hits and took advantage of 10 walks to walk away with an easy win.
Head coach Greg Reece was happy with his team’s play. He’s hoping that it carries over this week to Cloudland where the two squads will meet for the league championship.
“We have two huge conference games next week with Unaka and at Cloudland,” said Reece. “We played pretty well against Happy Valley and we need to be playing our best from here on out. I think our play carried over from the Grandview Tournament. The kids showed a lot of heart by winning the thing.”
They showed some power hitting abilities against the Tribe too.
Abby Cornett had a triple and two RBIs. She was 1-for-1 with two runs scored. Alexis Headley had a run scoring triple which led to a three-run inning.
Hannah Brooks slapped a double going 1-for-2 with two runs scored.
The big bat belonged to Serena Leonard who went 2-for-2 with three runs scored. Natalie Winters was 1-for-3 with two runs scored and an RBI. Emmy Miller drove in a pair with a solid single. Adrian Hall provided a base hit and scored twice. Tiffany Price was 1-for-2 with an RB. Maddie Edington drove in a run as well.
