FPS staff report

Jenna Metz started for the Warriors last Tuesday night at Minerva.

An excellent season came to a disappointing end for the Carrollton varsity softball team last week as they dropped their final three games.

The Warriors end with an overall record of 19-9 and 9-5 in the Northeastern Buckeye Conference.

Carrollton played Dover in the Carrollton Division II sectional championship game last Wednesday at the Field of Dreams.

The Tornadoes completely dominated the contest, winning 10-0 in five innings.

The Warriors were held to just three hits, singles by Bethany Sevek and Jenna Metz and a double by Morgan Hepner.

Metz took the loss in going the distance. She struck out four and walked five. The Warriors had six errors in the game.

In regular season action, the Warriors were on the road at Minerva last Tuesday where they fell to the Lions 5-4.

Carrollton got on the board first. Tanner Owens reached on an error by the catcher, stole second and scored on a double by Taylor Lowdermilk.

Minerva took the lead on senior night, scoring three times in the bottom of the first inning.

In the fourth, the Warriors scored twice to tie the game at 3-3. Monica Starre led off the inning with a single and went to second on a pass ball. Sevek doubled with one out to score Starre. Boo Turkovich entered as a pinch runner for Sevek. Destinee Stidom then doubled to score Turkovich.

Minerva took the lead for good in the fifth with a pair of runs.

Carrollton tried to come back in the seventh.  With two outs, Owens doubled and scored on a single by Lowdermilk.

Lowdermilk finished with a pair of doubles and two RBI, while Stidom had a double, single and RBI and Sevek a double and RBI.

The Lady Warriors ended their season Friday night at home against Canton South.

The Warriors fell to the Wildcats 3-1.

Carrollton’s only run came in the fifth inning.

Lowdermilk and Metz each had two hits for the Warriors.

The Wildcats scored single runs in the fourth, sixth and seventh innings.
