Creek Wood Wins Rivalry Game over Dickson County
After being blown out 10-0 in game one of this season, the Lady Red Hawks showed significant improvement on Thursday hosting Dickson County.
Creek Wood would jump on the Lady Cougars early with four runs through two innings and never look back.
A 4-2 victory they did it in every aspect.
At the plate, Creek Wood put the pressure on Alexia Hoskins in the circle.
Three singles in the first four batters she faced and they bunted for multiple singles throughout.
The Lady Red Hawks also stole five-plus bases and ran smartly on the base paths.
In the field, they did not commit mistakes, unlike their five errors in the first matchup, and even took advantage of base running mistakes by Dickson County.
Lastly, while Raegan Albert started the game, Elizabeth Martin was its MVP.
Martin entered in a no-outs, bases loaded, situation and held the Lady Cougars to just one run in the inning.
She would only give up one more through 3 or 4 innings of work and struck out four-plus batters.
Creek Wood will now try and use this as a jumping-off point in the back half of their season.
They will have multiple district games next week they need to win.
Meanwhile, the Lady Cougars will have to re-evaluate again how they can better find timely hits and not strand runners.
They will face off with strong players and programs in Summitt and Waverly next week before beginning district play the following week.
