Storm puts West Vigo game on hold

Edgewood ousts Northview

NASHVILLE, Ind. — West Vigo’s bid to reach the championship game of the Class 3A Brown County Sectional will have to wait until today as a storm south of Nashville on Wednesday postponed the action with the Vikings trailing 3-1 to Owen Valley after three innings.

Northview lost in the first semifinal by a score of 12-0 in five innings to Edgewood. The Mustangs (16-10) punched their ticket to the championship game behind junior shortstop Steffi Farkas, who had two home runs, a double and six RBI.

Farkas’ three-run home run off the left-field foul pole capped a nine-run fifth inning for Edgewood. Northview also committed three of its five errors during the fifth inning.

The Knights, who finished the season with two wins, showed signs of offense early in the game, leaving the bases loaded in the first inning.

But Edgewood scored two unearned runs in the second and made it 3-0 on an RBI double by Farkas in the third.

“We were in it until the fifth,” Northview coach Kathy Vossmer said. “That’s kind of the story of our year. We play a good three or four innings and start to fall off the wagon a little bit.”

Northview freshman Stacy Payton had one hit and Whitney Halfhill had the Knights’ other hit.

“We didn’t have timely hits either and if you don’t have timely hits you can’t score runs. Need runs to win games,” Vossmer said.

It’s a young Knights squad with many returnees for 2015.

“We’ll start building toward next year,” Vossmer said. “We had a pretty young team. We asked a lot of our freshmen to step up and jump into some different varsity positions. I’m proud of them for doing what they’ve done this year. We’ll use it as a building season and just move forward.”

West Vigo will look to get a rally started today against Owen Valley, a team they defeated by the 10-run rule during the regular season.

Starting pitcher Hannah Harden gave up three runs in the third inning as Owen Valley used its speed to spark its offense.

Leadoff hitter Jennifer Morgan singled to start the inning, and Kati Lowe dropped a bunt down for another base hit. A sacrifice bunt by Katrina Dayhuff loaded the bases for the Patriots when the Vikings failed to get the lead runner at third base on a bang-bang play.

An RBI groundout by Grace Terrell plated the Patriots’ first run. Despite an outstanding effort by left fielder Mary Curley, Samaritan Lighter’s smash to the fence dropped in for a two-run double.

The action will resume at 6:30 p.m. today in the top of the fourth inning.

The championship game will be played at 6:30 p.m. Friday.

Edgewood    021    09    —    12

Northview    000    00    —    0

Highlights — For Northview, Stacy Payton and Whitney Halfhill had singles.

Next — Northview finished its season with two wins. Edgewood (16-10) plays at 6:30 p.m. Friday in the championship game against the winner of West Vigo and Owen Valley.
