Late scores give Lewistown victory over Tyrone girls

The Tyrone girls softball team was in a battle with visiting Lewistown at the Harry K. Sickler Athletic Complex on Wednesday afternoon, trailing just 2-1 after four innings. Lewistown rallied for three runs in the top of the fifth however, and two more in the seventh and the Lady Eagles couldn’t come up with an answer to drop the 7-1 decision.
Ashley Pennabaker and Kim Cherry each had a pair of base hits with Pennabaker driving in the only Tyrone tally.
Brooke Garbinsky went the distance for the Lady Eagles, striking out one and walking five.
“We are playing better. We have made some defensive changes and are starting to trust each other,” explained Tyrone softball coach Lois Loncher. “We still have a few areas that we need to improve in and will be doing that over the next few days. We hit better today and hope that continues.”
Lauver, Henry and Snyder led the Lewistown girls with two hits each. Ronnie Gearhart picked up the victory with seven strikeouts and five walks.
Both teams committed three errors.
