LEE’S SUMMIT WEST 4, BLUE SPRINGS SOUTH 1: The Jaguars offense sputtered in their third Suburban Big Seven game of the year as they fell to the Titans Thursday.
West pitcher Jordan Weber struck out 12 South batters and Savannah Everhart drove in South’s only run with a single in the sixth inning.
"Gotta hand it to (Weber), she used the zone and got us swinging," said head coach Kristi Williams, whose team fell to 9-3 overall and 1-2 in the Big Seven. "We just needed to string more contact hits together. We left 4 on base the first two innings. We needed to capitalize on those opportunities.”
Madison Crosslin was 2-for-3 with two singles and Haley Woolf had a base hit for the Jaguars.
Sydney Righi picked up the loss as she surrendered four runs on seven hits and struck out six.
