Lady Indians slip at Red Lion, 4-2

In just their second loss of a season with an unforgiving schedule, the Indian River High School softball team drew the short straw in an error-filled match against Red Lion last Thursday, April 17, falling 4-2.

“The two runs we scored were unearned, and the four runs they scored were unearned,” said senior pitcher Rachel Hudson. “All around, it was just not our best game. It was not my best game pitching.”

Despite trailing for five and a half innings, Red Lion scored three runs in the bottom of the sixth inning, to take a 4-2 lead that they would cling to for the rest of the game. Notably, freshman outfielder Samantha Mumford hit a double, and freshman first-baseman Madi McGee tallied two hits in the loss.

At 7-2, the Lady Indians are still well-positioned for a DIAA playoff run and potential Henlopen South championship, as they have still yet to face current division leader Laurel (5-1) after the game originally scheduled for Wednesday, April 16, was postponed.

After spring break, the team will hit the road to face Smyrna (1-6) on Tuesday, April 29, before returning home to take on Cape Henlopen on Thursday, May 1, at 4:15 p.m.
