H.S. softball: Parker fans 15 in Warrior Run's quarterfinal win


Clemens had two hits, an RBI, and three runs scored on the afternoon.

"(Clemens) is really seeing the ball," Watson said. "She tore the ball up the last week."

The Defenders took the lead for good on an RBI triple by Shrawder in the second. Warrior Run got one more in the third for a 3-1 lead, but it was still a two-run game heading to the bottom of the fifth.

In the fourth, the Rams' Kasey DeVoir and Crystal Shirk each singled to put two on, but Parker fanned Makenzie Martin to get out of the jam.

"Their first four hitters ... are pretty good sticks," Watson said of the Rams. "Those girls have produced most of their runs all year."

Warrior Run finally broke open the game in its final two at-bats. In the fifth, Lynn Vermilya and Laura Bastian sandwiched RBI hits around a Carra Rishel sacrifice.

In the sixth, four hits and an RBI groundout produced three more runs.

Parker then struck out the side in the top of the seventh to end the game.
