Central Slides By Northeast In Season Opener
August 19, 2010Northeast High School
The Northeast Raiderette softball team narrowly lost its first game to Central with a score of 15-14. The Raiderettes were the first to score and Central quickly came back to tie the score at 1. The Raiders went up by two more runs to lead Central 3-1 midway through the 3rd inning. Central had a strong showing at the bottom of the 3rd and took the lead with a score of 7-3. Thanks to some strong hitting and an exhausted Central pitcher, The Raiderettes scored 11 runs in the 4th inning to bring the score to 14-7. Samyra Mallard scored a home run with several teammates scoring and stealing bases. Central returned the favor quickly and the score was 14-13 until the bottom of the 7th inning. With two runners on base and one out, Central was able to tie the game and score the winning run after a marathon game. The Raiderettes were not victorious this time, but hungrily await our rematch on September 7th!
