Mackenzie Forney and Sadie Seney home runs propel DW to sweep over DeSales


DAYTON-Sat., April 30, the DW softball team played a doubleheader against DeSales. In game one, errors by DW led to a big four-run inning in the 2nd by DeSales. DeSales would lead 9-5 going into the bottom of the 6th before DW's bats would break out.

With two outs and two runners on in the sixth, Sadie Seney would step to the plate already having hit two doubles in three at bats. BAM! She slammed a three-run home run that cut the lead to 9-8. DeSales seemed to lose their composure after that, allowing the next four batters all to single, pushing in three more runs and completing the comeback and a 11-9 win.

Game two would also require heroics as DW committed seven errors to put themselves in a 10-2 hole after three innings. After finally holding DeSales scoreless in the top of the 3rd, DW put together a great rally.

Mackenzie Forney already had a single to lead off the 4th inning, and DW would bat around to give her another attempt. This time with a 2-0 count, she absolutely crushed a pitch over the left field fence for a three-run home run and the lead. You know that sound your driver makes when you hit it clean off the tee? It sounded like that.

DW would score eight more runs over the next two innings winning 21-13. The sweep puts them at 12-2 in the league and 13-3 overall in 2nd place going into a doubleheader at Liberty Christian.

"We struggled with errors in both games, but the girls stayed positive and with good base running and timely hits were able to pull off the victories. Sadie Seney had a three-run home run in the first game to give us momentum. Mackenzie Forney also had a three-run home run in the second game, which finally gave us a lead in the 4th inning," said Coach Shane Robins.
