Eagles’ shortstop Kylee Lammers made an amazing running catch behind third base in foul territory in the sixth inning and right fielder Jayden Wren went back on a ball and made a running catch in the second inning for the spectacular plays of the game. But the rest of the game, the Eagles were just simply solid in the field.

That defense, and timely hitting, led the Eagles to a 5-3 win over a talented Hickman Kewpies team.

The Eagles are now 5-0 on the season and play at South Callaway and California next week.

SoBoCo posted two first inning runs on a lead-off double by Courtney Phillips and Hickman’s error on Kate Ponder’s sacrifice bunt. Ponder then scored on a wild pitch after Bril Volle bunted her to third.

SoBoCo got two more runs in the second when Carrie Ponder reached on an error, Courtney Phillips walked and Lammers got a two-out hit to score both of them.
