Cape Fear Christian Academy’s varsity softball team posted its second five-inning Sandhills Athletic Conference win in as many days with an 11-1 victory at Freedom Christian on Tuesday.
The Eagles continue a busy week as they host Fayetteville Christian today at 4 p.m. and play Freedom at home on Thursday at 4:30 p.m. in a pair of make-up games from March. The demands of the schedule were reduced as a tournament at Wayne Christian on Friday and Saturday did not materialize.
CFCA faced a 1-0 deficit on a home run by Victoria Bryant in the first inning. The Eagles took the lead in a 3-run, inside-the-park home run by Mariah Bell that brought in Cailee Ray and Rhyleigh Horne.
CFCA extended the lead to 6-1 as Ray, Horne and Aarin Marlow scored in the fourth.
A five-run fifth inning included runs from Anslee McLamb, Marlow, Ray, Bell and Kim Bordeaux.
Ray finished 4-for-4, Bell was 3-for-4, Bekah Ennis went 1-for-1 with two walks and Marlow was 1-for-2.
Claire Parker started and pitched three innings with one hit, one walk and six strikeouts.
Horne finished in the circle, allowing one hit and one walk while striking out three.
