Roundup: Pirates advance to Section 3 finals

MEADOW BRIDGE — Fayetteville 9, Montcalm 6

Fayetteville 8, Valley 0, 5 innings

Morgan Wheeler fired a one-hitter and Jessica Brown backed her with two hits as Fayetteville downed Valley 8-0 in five innings Friday at Meadow Bridge High School.

The win evened the count with the Greyhounds, who had beaten the Pirates 4-3 Wednesday. The squads will square off at 1 p.m. today at Meadow Bridge for the Class A Region 3, Section 2 crown. The winner will meet host Richwood Thursday in the Region 3 semifinals.

Wheeler struck out six batters and walked three in scoring the win. She also had two hits and an RBI. Brown drove in two runs.

Fayetteville (9-18) jumped to a 5-0 lead in the bottom of the first inning. Kaitlyn Sisler walked, Taren Bone was hit by a pitch and Wheeler followed with a run-scoring single.

Jessica Brown and Jamie Spearen also had hits for RBIs, and Chelbe Dorsey singled home two runners.

Danyen Thomas had the only hit for Valley.

Earlier in the day, Wheeler and Sisler stopped Montcalm on two hits in a game that had been halted by darkness Thursday night. The contest was resumed in the sixth inning with Fayetteville leading 9-4.

Wheeler struck out 11 batters through the first five innings, but was plagued by wildness. She walked eight batters. Reliever Sisler fanned five Generals and walked three.

Both Wheeler and Sisler helped their own cause with two hits.

Autumn Repass and April Lewis had the sole Montcalm hits. Repass, who pitched for the Generals, allowed five hits and was victimized by six errors.
