DISTRICT 5 ROUNDUP: New Albany 11s storm back, clinch finals spot

Silver Creek 9-10 softball into championship

CLARKSVILLE — New Albany’s 11-year-old All-Stars trailed unbeaten Jeff/GRC 8-0 after three innings Friday before scoring 17 unanswered to clinch a spot in Tuesday’s championship game.

New Albany (2-1) will meet Jeff (3-1) for the title at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday after facing off against Highlander Youth Recreation (0-3) in today’s final pool game.

“We finally learned how to not give up,” New Albany manager Kurt Meyer said. “I told the players, if you have a better attitude, good things will happen.”

Down 8-0, New Albany scored twice in the third, 12 in the fourth and three more in the sixth. Jackson Murphy and Mitchell Meyer each had four hits, while Nick Sexton, Ray Reisinger and Jameson Miller-Embry had three apiece for New Albany.

Meyer took the mound with New Albany down 6-0. He allowed two inherited baserunners to score but shut down Jeff the rest of the way. He gave up two hits and struck out three.

“He came in in a tight spot and found the strike zone,” his father and manager said. “He got guys to ground out and fly out and he good great defense behind him.”
