Six-run sixth inning sends Blair Oaks past Centralia
Monday, August 27, 2012
WARDSVILLE, Mo. — How quickly things can change.
The Blair Oaks softball team managed just one baserunner through five innings. The Lady Falcons then plated six runs in the sixth inning to turn a two-run deficit into a four-run advantage.
The turn of events prevented Blair Oaks from losing its third straight game to open the season and dealt the defending Class 3 state champions their first loss of the year as the Lady Falcons defeated Centralia 6-2 on Monday night at the Falcon Athletic Complex.
“To be honest with you, for us I just think any win (would be a confidence boost), but any time you beat a quality team like Centralia, it’s even a bigger boost,” Blair Oaks coach Sharon Buschjost said. “Without a doubt, I think, and I think the girls think and feel, that it was that first win, just to get it and move on.”
