Westport 15, Keene 14

KEENE — In a high-scoring affair, the Eagles had a big first inning and were able to hold onto the lead against the Beavers in a Mountain and Valley Athletic Conference game.

The Eagles got 10 runs in the first inning and never relinquished the lead. Keene made it a close game but couldn’t come out on top.

“The girls did a great job,” Keene coach Lynn Dewalt said. “Being down in the game 10-0, you would think it would be over, but they showed some perseverance and we nearly took it.”

Brendee Russell got the win for the Eagles. They only manage to get two hits in the game, but took advantage of the huge first inning they had drawing 11 walks.

Taylor Geiger started in the pitching circle for the Beavers, and Tucker Geiger relieved her in the first inning. Tucker Geiger hit a three-run triple in the game to bring the Beavers closer. They scored five runs in the sixth and four runs in the seventh.
