Lady Mavs beat Beavers

(Continued)

LINDSIDE — PikeView 10, Bluefield 0

In the opening game of the sectional playoffs the PikeView Lady Panthers rolled to a victory over Bluefield.

A trio of PikeView pitchers,  Haleigh Compton, Samantha Meadows and Kristen Worrell combined for the four-hit shutout.

Brooke Baker, Lyndsay Hatfield and Worrell each had a pair of hits for  PikeView, who got 11 hits off Lucado.

PikeView head coach Steve Compton said, “We played well. When we needed to make a play, we made a play. When we needed a hit or a bunt we did what we needed to do. Our pitching was really well. We started out with Haleigh, she pitched two (innings). Her arm has been bothering her a little bit, we just let her pitch a couple of innings, then we brought in Sam (Meadows) who did an exceptional job, and then Kristen (Worrell) did a really good job.”

James Monroe took both games from PikeView during the regular season, 6-0 and 3-2, and the teams are coached by cousins and both teams have a lot of respect for each other.

“We lost here in the opening game of the season and then when they came to PikeView we had runners on second and third in the bottom of the seventh, so we played them well,” Compton said. “They’ve got some really good pitching. They’re a tremendous team all the way around. In order for us to do something we have got to play a solid game all around. We can’t give them nothing. We can’t give them nothing. It should be a good game.”
