North softball wins 17-4

Thursday, April 17, 2008

BAINBRIDGE -- Nine first-inning runs from North Putnam put freshman pitcher Lauran Green at ease, as she cruised to a 17-4 five-inning win in her first varsity start Wednesday night.

Greenc went five innings, allowing three runs on five hits and four walks. She also struck out two Mounties.

Cougar coach Jim Brothers was pleased for his pitcher and for his squad in general, as Green's outing gave fellow freshman Taylor Judy a break from pitching.

"It was big for us to rest Taylor," Brothers said. "Lauran did a really good job. She got ahead of most hitters. Our defense made plays behind her.

"Our offense was also a big boost. Nine runs in the first inning allowed Lauran to relax," he added.

Carlye McGaughey was big in the effort with a two-run homer. Elsiana and Leah Crosby also each had a double and three RBI. Ashley Curry, Judy and Ashley Doyle also added doubles.

In all, eight Cougar starters collected hits as they totaled 14 for the evening.

In the field, Brothers said he moved some people around and they responded.

The junior varsity defeated the Mounties 10-3.
