April 20, 2017

PERKINSTON – The Co-Lin Lady Wolves dropped a pair of games to Mississippi Gulf Coast Wednesday, as an early deficit hurt the team and game one and a walkoff single ended game two. The Lady Wolves move to 17-21 on the year and 12-14 in MACJC play. Gulf Coast moves to 33-10 on the season and 22-4 in league play.

“These were tough losses against a No. 7 ranked Gulf Coast,” said Co-Lin head coach Allen Kent. “ We ran up against two really good pitchers today.”

Co-Lin is in action Friday, April 21 as Itawamba Community College travels to Wesson. First pitch is slated for 2 p.m. Watch the game live at colinathletics.com.

Gulf Coast 5, Co-Lin 0

The Lady Bulldogs took an early lead in the bottom of the second after three singles plated three runs.

In the bottom of the third, Gulf Coast pushed two more runs across. One run came on a sacrifice fly to left, and another on a single.  

Co-Lin racked up six hits in the contest, led by Alexsundria Thomas with two. Alex Anthony, Dianna Hobgood, Logan Deroche, and Kamryn Vanlandingham added one each.

Gulf Coast was led by Brittney Triplet with two hits and one RBI. Camry Griffith, Molly Murphy, and Aidan Nichols added one RBI each.

Nora Keehn earned the win for Gulf Coast. She went seven innings, giving up zero runs, six hits, striking out six, and walking zero. Bailey Root took the loss for the Lady Wolves. She threw six innings, giving up five runs, seven hits, and striking out four.

“Root threw well, but they had one good inning that really did us in,” said Kent.

Gulf Coast 2, Co-Lin 1

Action was slow in game two as neither team plated a run until the sixth inning.

Vanlandingham lit up the scoreboard for the Lady Wolves in the top of the sixth with a solo homer to left field.

The Lady Bulldogs answered in the bottom of the seventh with a sacrifice fly to center to knot the game at one all.

The defensive battle continued into extra innings until a single in the bottom of the ninth inning from Gulf Coast’s Molly Murphy scored the go ahead run.

Vanlandingham got the Lady Wolves’ only two hits in the contest and drove in Co-Lin’s only run.

Kristen Sexton led the Lady Bulldogs with three hits, while Murphy and Paige Dill posted one RBI.

Aidan Nichols earned the win for MGCCC. She pitched nine innings, surrendering one run, two hits, and striking out 16. Christian Black took the loss for Co-Lin. She went eight and two-thirds innings, allowing two runs, eight hits, and striking out seven.

“This was a classic pitchers duel, as Christian Black threw one of her best games of the year,” said Kent. “We pushed them to the limit, but came up just short.”
