Mt. Vernon takes two from Lady Lancers

MOUNT VERNON, Ohio – Grace’s softball team could not earn a win at Mt. Vernon Nazarene on Friday.

The Lady Lancers were muted in the doubleheader, losing 8-2 and 3-0. Grace’s offense could only produce seven hits combined in the two games.

In the opening game, Grace scored both of its runs early. The Lady Lancers (8-14, 2-6 Crossroads League) plated twice in the top of the first inning.

Hannah Herbster and Abby Mozingo both reached base to lead off the game. Morgan Tapscott then drove in both runners with a timely single to put Grace ahead 2-0.

The Cougars (12-4, 4-0 CL) responded by scoring at least a run in the second, third, fourth, fifth and sixth innings.

Tapscott, Herbster and Chandler Elliott were the only Lady Lancers to notch a hit in the first game.

In the second game, Grace was unable to get on the scoreboard in a 3-0 defeat. The Lady Lancers had four hits in the game, including a double by Hannah Harless and a triple by Britney Young.

Harless was a perfect 2-for-2 from the plate. Elliott pitched five innings, allowing three runs against MVNU, and Herbster tossed the final inning of relief.

The Lady Lancers are on the road next week, starting with a league doubleheader at Spring Arbor on Monday.
