Whitfield, Stephens County drops season-opener in pitcher’s duel

It was hard to see Emma Whitfield earn a loss on Monday evening at East Hall, especially when she had electric stuff in the circle. Unfortunately, the one run she allowed in the bottom of the sixth was not enough for the Stephens County offense to overcome.

The Lady Indians’ senior and Clemson commit tossed a complete game (six innings), allowing the one run on just four hits and no walks, while striking out nine. Whitfield also added a hit as one of five in the game for the Lady Indians.

Junior Tyra Hunter had two hits, and sophomore Jasmine Lowery had one as did Kayley Sellers. Lowery and Sellers both had doubles.

It was East Hall’s Macy Banks who dueled Whitfield, allowing no runs in her complete game (seven inning) gem. She also walked nobody, so no one got a free pass in the contest. Banks allowed five hits to Whitfield’s four, and but collected a pair of hits herself.

The loss drops Stephens County to 0-1 on the young season, as it looks to rebound at home against Habersham Central in a non-region game on Wednesday.
