The bats were quiet for the Pleasantville Trojans as the calendar flipped from June to a very hot and muggy July 1.

The Trojans had a doubleheader slated for July 1. The first game of the day was a makeup contest at Truro against Interstate-35 in WCAC action.

The Trojans were flat offensively as they had five hits, but failed to score in a 6-0 setback to the Roadrunners.

Later that evening in a non-conference affair the Trojans faced No. 9 ranked East Marshall. Again the bats were taking a day off as the Trojans were held to four hits, only one of them coming after the second inning in another 6-0 setback.


The Roadrunners scored three runs in the third and three more in the fourth for the 6-0 win.

The big blast in the game was a two-run home run by Lilly Miller in the third.

Abby DeJoode took the loss in the circle for PHS. She gave up six runs, three of them earned on 10 hits.

Adi Adreon hurled the final two innings of shutout ball for the Trojans.

Josie Sowers was the only Trojan with two hits in the game.

East Marshall

The Mustangs improved to 27-3 with the win in Pleasantville.

The win was also the 24th straight for the Mustangs since a setback on May 29.

The daily double losses put the Trojans at 23-9 overall.

The Trojans gave up six runs in the first two innings of play as Faith Vander Hart took the loss. She gave up six runs on seven hits in 1.1 innings of work. DeJoode finished the final 5.2 innings without allowing a run.

The Trojans had chances early but left two runners on base in each of the first two innings.

Pleasantville had only four hits, one each from Mackenzie McGriff, DeJoode, Sydnee McKinney and Bridgette McKinney.
