GOSTOMSKY'S HOMER SPARKS LADY BUCCS...
Makenna Gostomsky's two-run home run sealed a 7-3 win over Franklin Monroe in a game where the Lady Buccs made key plays at critical times.

MARCH 26, 2019 - COVINGTON
Both Covington and Franklin Monroe started their seasons on Tuesday less than at full strength due each team playing without a key player in the lineup. Franklin Monroe, who run-ruled Covington a year ago, was without senior standout Kennedy Morris due to an injury suffered during basketball season and Covington was without versatile junior Layklyn Kemp.

And both teams felt the affects, but Covington was able to make enough plays in key situations to pull out a thrilling 7-3 win.

After jumping out to a 3-0 lead after one inning of play, Covington found itself in a battle as Franklin Monroe scored a pair of runs in the third and then had bases loaded with no outs in the top of the fifth.

But junior hurler Kenzie Long was able to pitch her team out of the jam by recording outs on three straight batters to preserve the 3-2 lead.

Covington followed by scoring a run in the bottom of the fifth and then Franklin Monroe cut the margin to 4-3 with a run of its own in the top of the sixth - which likely would have been more if it wasn't for a great play by center fielder Makenna Gostomsky, who was able to chase down a fly ball and make a perfect throw to the plate to hold a Lady Jet runner at third.

Gostomsky would then put the game away with one swing of the bat in the bottom of the sixth on a two-run home run to dead center field. Covington followed with an insurance run to make the score 7-3 entering the seventh inning.

In the top of the seventh, Kenzie Long struck out the first batter and then forced a pop up to right field that was hauled in by Krystal Latimer. Then after a single kept Franklin Monroe alive, Long recorded a strikeout to end matters.

Long pitched all 7 innings giving up 3 runs on 9 hits, 2 walks, and 8 strikeouts.

Nine Covington batters contributed toward 14 hits as a team with Gostomsky leading the way with three hits in four at bats - 2 singles, a home run, 2 RBI and one stolen base.

Long helped out her cause at the plate by connecting on two doubles and driving in a couple of runs.

Covington (1-0 overall and 1-0 in the CCC) looks to keep the early-season momentum going on Thursday at Mississinawa Valley.
