PEDRO, Ohio — Its always tough to defeat good teams on the the road.

The Gallia Academy softball team dropped a 5-2 decision to non-conference host Rock Hill, Tuesday night in a non-conference tilt in Lawrence County.

The Blue Angels got on the board first with a run in the top of the fourth but the Redwomen of Rock Hill answered with three runs in the bottom of the inning. RHHS pushed the lead to 5-1 with two runs in the sixth and GAHS had one chance left. Gallia Academy marked one run in the seventh but couldn’t rally back and Rock Hill claimed the 5-2 win.

The winning pitcher of record was Sami Nixon with a complete game effort, allowing two runs on seven hits. Nixon struck out seven Blue Angles and did not surrender a base on balls.

Violet Pelfrey suffered the loss after giving up five runs on six hits and a walk, while striking out four in six innings.

Pelfrey and Hannah Roach each marked a solo homerun to lead GAHS, while Micah Curfman was 2-for-3 at the plate. Kendra Barnes marked a triple, while Makenzie Barr and Kiersten Stanley each added a hit in the loss.

Rock Hill’s offense was led by Kenzie Harrah with two hits, followed by Brooke Hanshaw, Riann Keating, Kaci Russell and Brooklynn Massie with a hit apiece.

This is the lone scheduled meeting between RHHS and GAHS this season.
