Kelsey Ogden hit the Lady Panthers’ first varsity homerun of the season against the North Oldham Lady Mustangs Thursday. Unfortunately, it did not come in a victory for the home team, as Carroll fell 10-6. Carroll put up 11 hits on the visitors, but also committed eight errors in the game.

“We’re hitting the ball well enough to win,” head coach Ken Blair said. “We’ve gotta get rid of our Jekyll and Hyde fielding.”

The Lady Mustangs jumped out to an early 2-1 lead after the first inning. They scored four more in the second on two hits and three errors committed by the Lady Panthers.

Down 7-2 in the fourth, Brittany Yocum reached base on an error. With two out and one on, Ogden hit a two-run homer to pull the Lady Panthers within three runs.

The Lady Mustangs scored three more runs going into the bottom of the final inning. Carroll responded by scoring two more runs off of an RBI single from Kayla Williamson and a Lady Mustang error.

“We’ve kind of been like a roller coaster, and you know what, I hate roller coasters,” Blair said. “... We can’t put seven innings together right now. … We could play with that team, no doubt in my mind.”

Carroll wins over Trimble

Carroll and Trimble picked up where they left off in the top of the fourth with Trimble up 1-0 following a rain delay.

The Lady Panthers (4-14) scored 7 runs on six hits in the top of the fourth to put the game out of reach. Haley Damron and Kayley Perry each hit two RBI singles, while Kelsey Ogden hit a two RBI double and Mackenzie Ogden hit an RBI double.

Perry struck out seven in the win.
