The season ended on Wednesday for the Silver Creek softball team as the Dragons stumbled in the semifinal of the Class 3A Corydon Sectional to the host Panthers, 11-1.

Corydon plated four runs in the top of the third inning off of Dragons pitcher Danielle Fleming and cruised from there to advance to today’s championship game.

The Dragons were limited to two hits, with Rachel Everage clubbing a triple for the lone extra-base hit in the contest for Creek.

Samantha Kitner had a two-run double in the win for Corydon.


• Pirates rebound against Borden: Class 2A No. 5 Charlestown bounced back after losing to Austin Monday with a 12-2 victory over Borden at Pirate Park.

Four Pirates (20-5) got two hits apiece in Matt Wyatt, Bruce Oldham, Damon Vest and Chad Brady.

Ethan Jones was the winning pitcher, staying undefeated at 5-0. He gave up two runs on five hits, striking six and walking two.

Charlestown head coach Ricky Romans was proud to see his team reach 20 wins, a goal the Pirates set at the start of the season.

“It was nice to see that goal come to fruition,” Romans said. “It was nice to bounce back. Offensively, everyone contributed.”

For Borden (8-15), Drake Potts went 2-for-3 and pitcher Jeremy Blandford got the loss.

The Pirates will visit Jeffersonville tonight. The Braves will travel to Pekin Eastern Thursday.

• Tipton shuts out Scottsburg: Jeffersonville freshman Hunter Tipton struck out nine batters in five innings and Cody Poole and Brian Mendenhall both had home runs as Jeff rolled past Scottsburg 14-0 at Don Poole Field.

Tipton evened his record at 4-4 as the Red Devils improved to .500 at 13-13 with the victory.

“He threw very well,” said Jeff coach Al Rabe. “From start to finish, he threw strikes and he just had a nice ballgame. Offensively, we swung the bats well, too.”

Sam Burke had two doubles and Mendenhall also added a two-base hit in the win for Jeff.

• Tell City upends Highlanders: Host Tell City scored three times in the bottom of the sixth inning to hand Floyd Central a 7-5 defeat.

The Highlanders trailed 4-1 after four but rallied to take the lead with three runs in the fifth and another in the top half of the sixth only to have the home team rally.

Craig Kirchgessner and Bryce Fitzgerald each doubled in the loss for Floyd (13-12). The Highlanders will be at Forest Park on Thursday before hosting their last home game on Friday against Columbus North on Friday.

• Mustangs boot Crothersville: New Washington prepared for its regular-season finale by scoring runs in the last four innings en route to an 11-2 triumph over visiting Crothersville.

Jared Kinder doubled and tripled for the Mustangs (4-17), in support of pitcher Todd Harbin, who improved to 4-7 on the season. New Washington committed three errors for the game, a figure that coach Darren Floyd thinks is a good start if his team is going to make some noise in this weekend’s sectionals.

“We can’t seem to hit and keep the errors down in the same game,” Floyd said. “We just hope to keep a little momentum into the last game of the season and into the sectional.”

New Washington will host Southwestern Thursday.
