By Kenny Varner

REEDSVILLE – A very young MC Eagles 10U softball team went up against a very seasoned Prospect team from Centre County Saturday morning in their own tournament Saturday morning.

Though the group consisting of mostly all 9-year olds battled through the contest by the Prospects proved to be too much on the day winning 10-0 in four.

Prospects pitcher Abby Herr finished with a no-hit shut out on the day, while striking out nine.

Leading the way offensively for the Prospects were Klohie Brown and Marissa Yetter.

Brown went 3-for-3, 3RBIs and 3 runs while finishing with a triple and two singles.

Yetter battled for a 2-for-3 effort, scoring just once.

Mifflin County hurler Braylin Walters finished with a 4-strike out performance.

In the first, the Prospects led with a 3-run effort. The inning was highlighted by 2-RBI single by Brown.

But in the second, Mifflin County and the Prospects defenses stood strong refusing to allow a run on either side.

In the top of the third, with one out Mifflin County used strong patience at the plate as they were able to get walks from Gracelyn Rider, Abby Wray and Addie Westover, loading the bases.

However, Herr struck out the next two, keeping the 3-0 lead in tact for her team.

In the bottom of the inning, the Prospects added five more runs as it was highlighted by a triple and a run scored by Brown.

When the dust settled, the Prospects upped its lead to 8-0.

In the top of the fourth, Bella Yoder reached on a walk and quickly moved up to third via a stolen base and an error, putting her in scoring position.

But again, Herr got back into control and stranded Yoder, keeping the shut out in tact.

The Prospects added two in the bottom of the fourth to clinch the contest.

In the second contest, the Eagles fell to Bellatrix 15-1.
picking up hits for Mifflin County were Bella Yoder and Ava Krepps.
