Lady Maroons blank Lady Panthers

One inning was enough to propel Robinson High School's softball team past county rival Oblong in the first meeting between the two teams as conference opponents.

The Lady Maroons used a three-run third inning to take control of what was a scoreless game to that point and went on to win the Little Illini Conference contest, 4-0.

The three-run outburst in the third inning put Robinson in front to stay, while the Lady Maroons tacked on an insurance run in fifth inning on their way to their third straight victory. The game was the first of the season for the Lady Panthers after several postponements.

"Our defense played yet another great game today with no errors," RHS head coach Larry Hilderbrand said. "I can't say enough when you have only had one day of practice on the field and the rest in-game situations. It's tough being in the gym because you can only do so much, but they are staying focused on what they need to do."

"It was good to play against somebody for a change and it was a nice day to play," OHS head coach Galen Slover said. "The mistakes we made can be fixed. The kids gave a good effort and played with a lot of heart and enthusiasm and that is what we ask of them."

Jasmine Brooks led RHS at the plate with two doubles, two runs batted in and a run scored, while Kyndal Mendenhall singled and scored two runs. Madison Bayless posted a base hit and a run batted in, Olivia Hickey singled and scored a run and Ashlyn Sullivan added a base hit.

"We came out swinging the bats today," Hilderbrand said. "Jasmine had a great day at the plate."

Parker Corder earned the win on the mound, allowing just three hits and one walk while striking out seven in seven innings.

All three of Oblong's hits were singles, as Christy Kirkham, Kelsie Harper and Baylee Sparks had one apiece.

Ashlei Tuel took the loss on the mound, giving up three runs on five hits in two and one-third innings, while Sparks allowed one run on one hit with one walk and two strikeouts in three and two-thirds innings of relief.
