Guerin Catholic 4, New Castle 2

The Trojans went on the road Friday evening to face the Golden Eagles, who ended their season in the sectional last year, and lost by a pair of runs to drop to 5-2-1 for the season.

New Castle fell behind 3-0 before plating two runs in the top of the fourth inning. But the Trojans couldn’t score any more and Guerin Catholic added an insurance run in the last of the fifth to account for the final score.

New Castle had four hits in the contest, two by Rylan Huntley and one apiece from Dakota Durick and Corbin Malott. The Trojans’ runs were scored by Triston Chesher andDrew Barber.

Malott started on the mound for New Castle and absorbed the loss, hurling five innings and giving up five hits and four runs (three earned), walked two and struck out one batter. Jacob Lucas pitched one inning of relief for the Trojans and gave up a hit and a walk while fanning two Golden Eagle batters.

New Castle played a doubleheader at Richmond Saturday and travels to Noblesville Tuesday.

Boys Golf

Muncie Central 155, Shenandoah 177, Anderson 216

The Raiders hosted the Bearcats and Indians, two teams from the North Central Conference, Thursday evening at Tri-County Golf Club and finished second in the three-way meet.

“Muncie brought nine golfers, Anderson brought eight, and we had 12 golfers,” Shenandoah Coach Thomas Zimmer stated. That’s a lot of young golfers on nine holes at one time. To top it off, it was the windiest night of the year. Aside from looking for one lost ball, pace of play was pretty good. With that being said, we lowered our team score and improved on a couple of skills, with plenty to still work on.”

Shenandoah was led by senior Daniel Chapman, who kept pace with the golfers from Muncie Central and shot a 40 with one birdie and 17 putts. Freshman Jordan Myers shot a 44, junior Peyton Starks had a 46, but only 14 putts (the goal is 15 or below), and junior Tommy Deley shot a 47 and nearly chipped in for birdie on hole No. 9 from the back side of the green with 40 people watching (and talking).

“Rome wasn’t built in a day,” Zimmer added. “Muncie Central has a very senior-heavy team, who all seem to be able to crush their drivers, as the low score was 36. We lowered our overall score this week by 17 strokes, and now let’s see what we can do with our first 18 holes on Saturday.”

The Raiders competed in the Monroe Central Invitational on Saturday.

Softball

New Castle 16, Cowan 6

The Trojans made the trek to southern Delaware County Thursday evening and defeated the host Blackhawks in a game that ended after six innings of play on the 10-run rule. New Castle improved to 3-2 for the season.

Both pitching staffs had their hands full in the high-scoring game. Madie Harter got the win for the Trojans in the circle, as she went the distance and surrendered six runs on seven hits over six innings, striking out ten and walking no one.

H. Covington started the game in the circle for Cowan. She lasted three innings, allowing six hits and eight runs while striking out one. A. Adams took the loss for Cowan. She surrendered eight runs on six hits over the final three innings.

New Castle had 12 hits in the game, and was led by Kelsie Patton, who went 4-for-5 from the plate. Jaliya Harris and Allicen Burris also collected multiple hits apiece for the Trojans.

In the first inning, New Castle got its offense started as Harter grounded out and plated a run. The Trojans notched four runs in the top of the fifth inning, some scoring on a single by Lexi Lane.

K. Kear led Cowan with two hits in three at-bats.

New Castle played a doubleheader at Southport Saturday and returns home to face Mt. Vernon (Fortville) Monday evening at Baker Park.

Cambridge City Lincoln 15, Knightstown 6

The Panthers hosted the undefeated Class A No. 4 Golden Eagles Thursday evening, who lived up to that lofty ranking, but the visitors had to rally in the late innings for the win.

Knightstown led 5-2 after five innings as Sidney Vise kept Lincoln off-balance consistently. The Golden Eagle hitters finally got patient and exploded for nine runs in the sixth inning and four more in the seventh.

The final stat line and final score don’t show it, but the Panthers dominated a state championship contender for five innings. However, a couple of bloop hits and errors led to bigger hits and lots of runs for Cambridge City.

Knightstown was led on offense by Cara Mullen with three hits and Paige Personnett and Alyssa Northern with two apiece.

The Panthers fell to 1-3 and played at Blue River Valley Saturday.
