McKENZIE (August 30) — The McKenzie Middle School Lady Rebels hosted Huntingdon Thursday for a thrilling rivalry game. It would take an unlikely comeback for McKenzie to claim an 11-10 victory.
The contest seemed to be over quickly as the Fillies plated ten runs in the top of the first, capped by a three-run homer by Kelby Crossno. The Lady Rebels were undaunted, though, rallying for five-run innings in the second and third after scoring a lone run in the bottom of the first. Briley Auvenshine threw four-and-a-third scoreless innings of relief to keep Huntingdon in check and make the comeback possible.
Lady Rebel Kassidy Brown was 3-for-3 with two doubles, four RBIs and a run scored. Payton Ognibene was 3-for-3 with three RBIs. Savannah Davis was 3-for-4 with an RBI, two runs scored and two stolen bases. Briley Auvenshine was 1-for-3 with a walk and three runs scored. Belle O’Brien was 1-for-2 with a walk and a run scored. Katie Prather was 0-for-2 with two walks, two runs scored and a stolen base. Mikaela Reynolds was 0-for-1 with a walk, two runs scored and a stolen base.
