Warren Central played a complete game for a change, beating Madison Central 10-3 Tuesday night at Lady Vikes Field.

Coach Lucy Young’s team belted out 15 hits, had a pair of big outfield assists to stop a Lady Jaguar rally in the sixth inning and then ended the game with a double play.

&#8220It was one of our better games,” Young said as her team improved to 12-4 on the season. &#8220I was real excited about our hitting. We had good base hits that would’ve worked in any kind of game. The Madison pitcher (Britnee Hobson) was trying to pitch us inside but we did a good job of adjusting to it.”

All 10 regulars in the Lady Vikes’ lineup had either a hit or a run scored.

&#8220We hit the ball a lot better today, I guess because we saw the ball better,” said WC outfielder Tiffany Fuller, who had two hits and scored three runs. &#8220We played more as a team today.”

Madison Central (8-5) got a run in the first when it appeared Kaitlyn Carmody had been tagged out at third base before Ashley Norman had touched home plate. Normally, that run is disallowed.

No bother, the Lady Vikes simply scored six in their half of the first off four hits and four Lady Jaguar errors.

In the fourth, Mandy Fuller blasted a triple down the left-field line, scoring Tay Wince and Tiffany Fuller for an 8-1 lead. Shawn Johnson, who had three hits, singled up the middle to score Mandy Fuller for a 9-1 lead.

Bridget Dillon also had three hits while Mandy Fuller had two and knocked in two.

Madison Central was led by Norman‘s two runs and a hit.

The WC JV team played three games at the Clinton Tournament Monday, going 1-2. They lost to Brandon and Pearl but beat Clinton 9-6. Keke Prentiss led the team with five hits.

The Lady Vikes host Clinton’s varsity on Thursday.
