Hebron Christian walks past Oak Hill

PHEBA — Hebron Christian School will be happy to get better from this game. Oak Hill Academy will just want to find a win soon – no matter the circumstances.
As both teams combined for 14 walks, nine hit batters and 15 wild pitches, the Lady Eagles crawled out of the intra-county fray with a season opening victory over the Lady Raiders. Victoria Ferguson’s run on a wild pitch and Jana White’s smart base running in the fourth inning gave Hebron an 11-9 win Tuesday at HCS in Pheba.
“All I can say is that we won,” Hebron head coach Cass Tapley said. “It wasn’t pretty, but we won.”
Oak Hill head coach Nathan Ellis was at a loss for words as his Lady Raiders fell short of their goal to tie its win total from last season. Oak Hill has lost three consecutive games to open the season by an average of two runs, including two losses in the final inning of a game.
“We battle, we battle, we battle and we just came up short,” Ellis said. “I really don’t even know what to say. We’re fighting so hard, it’s going to happen.”
Lady Eagle sophomore pitcher Brooke Griffin grabbed her first win of the season inside the pitching circle. Griffin retired four Lady Raiders on strikes and surrendered four runs on four hits in three innings of work. Rebekah Falkner struck out two in her inning of relief, giving up five runs.
