Bellefontaine’s softball team rallied for a 4-3 victory in eight innings over visiting Tecumseh on Monday in Central Buckeye Conference action.
The Chiefs are now 10-9 overall and 5-6 in the CBC Kenton Trail division, while the Arrows slip to 8-8, 3-8.
“Tecumseh came out strong in the top of the first scoring all three of their runs,” said BHS head coach Katie Buffkin. “It took us some time to string together some hits to manufacture the runs we needed to win. Fortunately, our defense and pitching settled down and allowed us to continue to battle without giving up anymore after the first.”
Tecumseh struck early and led 3-0 after the first inning.
Bellefontaine battled its way back, scoring two runs in the bottom of the fourth inning to cut the score to 3-2.
The Chieftains followed with another run in the bottom of the fifth inning to tie the game 3-3.
They were then able to grind out a run in the bottom of the eighth inning to pull out the 4-3 victory.
Sidney Dew recorded the win in the pitching circle and went 2-4 with a double at the plate.
Also for the BHS offense, MacKenzie Brunswick went 2-4 with a triple, Jazmyn Haley had a double and Cat Faulder went 2-4.
Bellefontaine travels to Tecumseh today for another CBC meeting.
