West Point softball rallies to remain unbeaten

| Sunday, Aug. 7, 2011

The West Point Junior girls softball team improved to 3-0 in the Little League Eastern Regional in West Haven, Conn, by rallying to defeat Milford, Del., 5-1.

The trio of Nicole Adisey, Amber Reeping and Shelby Noel combined to throw a one-hitter. Reeping was the winning pitcher, working three scoreless, hitless innings in relief of Adisey, who left trailing, 1-0.

Kellie Hutchinson continued her hot hitting, going 2 for 3 with two RBI. She had a two-run double in a three-run fourth inning.

Adisey, who went 3 for 3, drove in the first run of the inning with a single.

"We were a little off," West Point manager Tom Appleby said. "We didn't hit like we have. It wasn't one of our most impressive games. But our pitchers did another nice job, and falling behind didn't seem to faze the girls."

West Point added two insurance runs in the sixth inning on a throwing error when Hutchinson and Julie Fiedor were attempting a double steal.

West Point plays another doubleheader Sunday. It will battle Westerly National, R.I., at 10:30 a.m., and then play the only other remaining unbeaten team in the tournament, West Haven, Conn. at 2:30 p.m.
