The Jefferson Davis Community College Lady Warhawk softball team continued their recent dominance of teams Wednesday afternoon at home as they picked up their ninth straight win with a sweep of Alabama Southern.
The Lady Warhawks improved to 23-20 overall and to 11-7 in conference play with a 6-2 win in game one and a 7-5 come-from-behind win in game two.
JDCC quite possibly could have not got the second game win against Alabama Southern had it not been for Tiffany Jean (TJ) Duncan’s three-run homerun in the bottom of the fifth inning with the Lady Warhawks trailing 5-3. Duncan also had a homerun against Bishop State on Monday.
Game one: JDCC 6, ASCC 2
Aleah Payne led JDCC at the plate, as she was 3-for-4 with four RBIs and a double. Ashleigh Allgood was 3-for-4 with two RBIs and CaSandra Yarbrough was 2-for-4 with one RBI.
Jessica Morris was 1-for-4 with one RBI and a double in the win and Duncan, Sarah Vardeman and Candice Lawrence were all 1-for-3.
Allgood picked up the win as she went seven innings allowing two runs on three hits, struck out seven and walked three.
Game two: JDCC 7, ASCC 5
In the bottom of the fifth, JDCC scored four runs thanks to a three-run homerun by Duncan to take a 6-5 lead and win 7-5 for their ninth straight win as they improved to 23-20 overall and to 11-7 in conference play.
Duncan was 2-for-2 with three RBIs to lead JDCC and Morris was 1-for-4 with two RBIs and a double.
Payne was 3-for-4 with one RBI and Amber Wilson was 2-for-3 with one RBI in the win.
Kayla McKnight took the win on the mound for JDCC. McKnight went 3 1/3 inning allowing four hits, and struck out one. Allgood picked up the save in 2/3 of an inning allowing one strikeout.
Game one: JDCC 2, WSD 0
Needing at least one win Thursday at home against Wallace State Dothan to make the state tournament, the JDCC Lady Warhawks pulled out a 2-0 win to improve to 24-20 overall and 12-7 in conference with their 10th straight win.
JDCC scored the only two runs of the game in the first inning and picked up the two-run win.
