Softball: Conway aces CF; MB rallies past Socastee

consoft-huddleThe Conway High softball team kept rival Carolina Forest from capturing a playoff bid Monday night by shutting out the Lady Panthers 2-0 in the Region 6-4A finale for both teams.

conway’s Chelsea Mitchell and Neci Hemingway combined to pitch a three-hit shutout as they alternated innings on the mound throughout the game. Mitchell got the win for the Lady Tigers (9-7), who claimed the No. 3 seed in the upcoming district tournaments.

Mitchell also contributed at the plate with a big RBI double in the fourth inning to score Ashley Rowell. The other big blow by Conway came two batters earlier, as Taylor Richardson hit a solo home run to left field to give Conway the only run it needed. Hemingway had the other hit for the Lady Tigers.

Leading hitters for Carolina Forest were Riley McTiernan (1-for-3), Carolina Barker (1-for-3), and Rachel Lindenberry (1-for-3) as the Lady Panthers will miss out on the playoffs while Conway will travel to Summerville to open the postseason on Wednesday at 6 p.m.

* Myrtle Beach 9, Socastee 7: The Lady Seahawks rallied to win their playoff tuneup with a big victory over the Lady Braves.

Myrtle Beach opened up with an early 4-0 lead but Socastee fought back to tie it in the third inning. Abby Dugan hit a three-run home run to give the Lady Braves a 7-4 lead.

The Lady Seahawks closed the gap with one run in the fifth and sixth, then they added three runs on RBIs by Morgan Compton and Carly Grace Bodge, who picked up another win on the mound.

Compton went 2 for 4 with three runs scored and two RBIs. and Bodge was 2 for 4 with two doubles and three RBIs.  Mckenzie Coble and Leah Belack scored two runs a piece.

The Lady Seahawks will be the No. 4 seed and will likely face Hartsville in the first round of playoffs on Friday. Socastee, also a No. 4 seed, will open postseason play on the road Thursday.
