BERNE—The Lady Starfires continue to improve this season as their win total is now three times higher than last year's season mark.
On Saturday, South Adams hosted the always tough Bellmont Squaws for an inner-county rivalry game where the host Stars defeated their visitors, 6-2 improving to 9-11 on the season.
"It was nice to come back and win game two after the let down of game one," SA coach Jessie O'Dell commented after the game. South Adams played conference rival Garrett in the first game of the double-header on Saturday losing, 4-1.
Against the Squaws, the Starfires posted eight hits in the ball game and benefited from three Bellmont miscues. SA jumped out front, 3-0 after the first and added a fourth run in the second inning to set the tone early. Bellmont would get one in the fifth and one in the sixth off of nine hits in the game as South Adams held their ground defensively.
"Lily (Taing) threw strikes and we played well on defense," noted coach O'Dell.
