It was a nail bitter, but the Panthers managed to pick up a road win in Spring Valley on Monday by a 12-11 score. EP held a 12-7 lead going into the bottom of the 7th when the Red Devils added 4, but allowed no more to eek out the 1 run win.
EP showed some serious power as Corrie Remley hit 2 home runs and collected 4 RBIs and Ady Scott had a round-tripper and added 2 RBIs. Olivia-Hope Toppert had 3 hits and scored a run with Erica Thulen getting 2 knocks and swiping 2 bases.
The teams were tied at 2 after the third, but Hall erupted for 5 runs in the 4th after the Panther added 2 in their half of the inning to trail 7-4. EP then exploded for 8 runs in the 5th, which led to the dramatic bottom of the 7th.
Corrie Remley started in the circle for EP going 3.2 innings giving up 4 hits, 7 runs, but just 2 earned as the Panthers committed a few errors behind her. She had some control issues walking 7 and striking out 3. Calisa Steel came on in relief to pitch the final 3.1 innings allowing 5 hits, 4 runs (3 earned), 1 BB and 1 K.
"We had a lot of great hits including 3 home runs, but gave up some timely errors and walks that hurt us. I had all the faith in the girls that we were going to keep on scoring though, and that's what we did," said coach Kerrie Tenboer
The Panthers stand at 15-7 overall and 7-2 in conference play. They host Rockridge on Wednesday.
