BLUFF CITY— Like kids watching kites fly high, things are looking up for Johnson County. The Lady Longhorns picked up another conference road win by knocking off Sullivan East 5-0 on Monday.

The ‘Horns (3-1, 2-1) got a stellar pitching performance from Cindi Edington who went the distance. The “sizzling slinger” allowed four
hits with 10 strikeouts and one walk. She also went 2-for-3 with an RBI and a run scored.

“Cindy pitched a great game today,” said head coach Dana Smith. “She hit her spots and kept them off balance. We also played good defensively behind her. We did well except for leaving the bases
loaded twice. We’ve got to try and correct that.”

It was Edington who helped produce their first run.
She doubled in the first inning, then scored on another two-bagger by Abby Reece.

They would up their advantage at 2-0 in the second frame. Hope Nelson singled but was cut down on the base path. Kelli Sluder,
Michala Cretsinger and Kelsey Duperry would all reach to load the bases. Edington had a sac fly before East could escape the inning.

Johnson County would put the game away in the fifth by scoring three times.
Demi Blevins ignited the fire with a solid single. Nelson’s sacrifice bunt got misplayed putting runners at second and third. Duperry cleaned the bases with a two-run double increasing the margin at 4-0.
