Softball Showdown Goes To Patriots

It was a unique set of circumstances that faced Lee-Davis and Patrick Henry as they took to the diamond Thursday afternoon in Ashland.

The Patriots were 4-0 and looking to do, again, what no other team was able to do in 2011, defeat Lee-Davis, who went on to win the state title.

The Confederates were taking the field for the first time in 2012, with their first two games postponed due to the death of Head Coach Jackie Davis' father. On top of that, they were missing star pitcher Kelly Heinz, out for the year after arm surgery.

With all that playing against Lee-Davis, they held their own against Patrick Henry for most of the game, until the Patriots broke open for four runs in the bottom of the sixth to go on to win 6-1.

Emma Mitchell scattered five hits and struck out eight, giving up her first earned run of the year in the top of the seventh, but by then, the game was in hand. Mitchell worked hard for the victory, throwing 120 pitches.

Sam Moore homered in the sixth, while Allison Tingler went four for four and scored two runs.

The Patriots (3-0, 5-0) return to Colonial District action Friday afternoon at 4:30pm against John Marshall. Lee-Davis (0-1) hosts Deep Run in another tough out-of-district test Monday at 6pm.

Prince George Nips Hanover

The Hanover Hawks softball team lost leads of 1-0 and 3-1 as Prince George defeated them Wednesday night, 5-3. The game was shortened to six innings due to weather conditions.

It was Hanover's first loss of the season, bringing their record to 2-1. Their victories were over Cosby and J.R. Tucker. Hanover begins Capital District play at home Tuesday night against Glen Allen.

PH Sweeps Hermitage and Tuesday Scores!

Paige Mitchell hit a bases loaded triple to break open a tight game, giving Patrick Henry an 8-0 win over Hermitage Tuesday evening, raising the Patriots softball record to 3-0 in the Colonial District, 4-0 overall. Madison Gilman had three hits for the Patriots, while Emma Mitchell struck out 12 Panthers en route to her fourth shutout in as many games.

The Patriots welcome Lee-Davis to Ashland Thursday afternoon. Patrick Henry is the only team to defeat Lee-Davis during the Confederates' 2011 State Championship season. Without pitcher Kelly Heinz, out for the season due to surgery on her pitching arm, Lee-Davis still returns with tremendous potency at the plate and pitching promise. This will be their first game of the year, having already had two games postponed (Matoaca and Hermitage) to later in the season.

Meanwhile, Kyle Palmer pitched a shutout gem leading Patrick Henry baseball to an important 3-0 win at Hermitage. The Patriots are now 2-1 in the Colonial, 3-1 overall. As several prognosticators had seen Patrick Henry battling with Hermitage in the middle of the Colonial District in 2012, the road victory is crucial for the Patriots if they want to challenge the upper echelon teams such as Deep Run and Douglas Freeman.



Atlee 2, Clover Hill 1 (Raiders score winning run in the bottom of the 7th to go to 3-0! Jessica Holte had two hits and was the winning pitcher)

Atlee 8, Clover Hill 0 (Cam Maxey struck out five and only allowed two hits over six innings. Atlee is now 2-0)

Hanover 10, Dinwiddie 0 (5 innings; Chris Childress hit a two-run homer while Bryant Lowry had three hits. Hawks are now 2-0!)

Maggie Walker Gov School 2, Patrick Henry 1 (Patriots are 1-2 in Colonial and overall)
Atlee 1, Clover Hill 1 (season opener for Atlee, now 0-0-1)

Hanover 7, Colonial Heights 0 (Hawks now 1-1)

The Lee-Davis baseball team got a gutty performance by pitcher Michael Thomas, who struck out 14 and got out of a bases-loaded 4th inning jam with three straight K's, leading the C-Feds to a 3-0 win on the road at Hermitage Friday night in their season opener!

Patriots Girls, Boys Sweep Jaguars....

Emma Mitchell struck out 15 batters and allowed only two hits as Patrick Henry got a road shutout over Glen Allen in softball Wednesday evening, 7-0.

Cody Crawley's sacrifice fly in the top of the sixth inning scored the winning run and the Patriots struck out the side in the bottom of the seventh to hold on for an 8-6 baseball victory over Glen Allen.

Mitchell Pitches Patriots To Opening Win

Emma Mitchell struck out ten and came within two strikes of a perfect game as the Patrick Henry softball team began the 2012 season with a 6-0 shutout on the road against Maggie Walker Governors School Tuesday afternoon.

The game was scoreless until the Patriots broke open for two runs in the sixth and four in the seventh. Madison Gilman had two hits, including a double, and Sam Moore belted a two-run triple in the seventh inning offensive outburst.

An infield single and a runner reaching by error were the only two blemishes on Mitchell's 89-pitch performance, both of which came with two outs in the seventh inning. Both runners were stranded as the Patriots go to 1-0 in the Colonial and overall.

They go out-of-district tomorrow at 6pm at Glen Allen.

Mills Godwin 4, Patrick Henry 1

Lee-Davis 7, Armstrong 2
