May 16—PLYMOUTH — Another tight one went to the Monroeville softball team on Friday.

The Eagles again edged host Plymouth by a single run, this time a 3-2 final score in a rescheduled Firelands Conference game.

Monroeville (22-5) claimed a 5-4 walk-off win over the Big Red (18-8) on May 1 at home, then held them off on the road Friday.

The Big Red tied it in the bottom of the fourth, as Jaylin Branham singled after Kaela Plank reached on an error, which set up Ariel Plank for an RBI groundout.

Monroeville then scored in the top of the fifth and sixth innings.

Three straight singles in the fifth by Adelynn Kradlak, Sydney Meisler and Lydia Landoll loaded the bases.Ariel Plank minimized the damage, allowing just one run on an RB single by Rosser that gave the Eagles a 2-1 lead.

Kradlak singled and scored on an RBI single by Meisler in the sixth to make it 3-1, then an RBI single by Mackenzie Back scored Branham to make it 3-2 through six.

Both sides were retired in order in the seventh.

In the circle, Payton Scheid allowed two unearned runs on three hits with six strikeouts and no walks in seven innings. Ariel Plank countered with three runs (two earned) on seven hits with nine strikeouts and no walks in her seven innings.
