For the first time this season, the Princeton Community Lady Tigers Softball team is in the win column as Wednesday they run-ruled Vincennes Lincoln on the road 15-5.

The Lady Tigers fell behind 3-0 after one inning but quickly began to chip away at the Lady Alices lead.

In the top of the second, the Lady Tigers cut the lead to 2-1 as sophomore Brilley Vela laid down a sacrifice bunt to score Kylie Lake.

An inning later, the Lady Tigers not only tied the game but took a massive lead. Raegan Etolen smashed an RBI double to cut the lead to 3-2 and then scored on an error, tying the game.

Later in the inning, Jade Christy, Like and Hailey Shadwick all hit RBI singles to put PCHS in front 6-3. They’d continue to tack on runs after the three clutch singles as Lake scored on a wild pitch, Jordyn Stackhouse plated a run with a sac-fly, Kasey Wood hit a two-run double and Christy hit another RBI single as the Lady Tigers put up 11 runs to take an 11-3 lead.

With the score 11-5, the Lady Tigers added three runs in the top of the fourth as Lake scored on an error, Stackhouse hit a ground ball to scored Shadwick and Etolen singled home Ryha McIntrye.

PCHS added another run in the top of the fifth as Lake singled home Ashton Cox, allowing them to close out the Lady Alices two-innings early.

On the mound, Karson McGraw earned the win for the Lady Tigers with a complete game that saw her allow just six hits, five runs with only two earned, one walk and strikeout one.

The Lady Tigers will look for a second straight win Monday when they travel to South Knox.
