Effingham St. Anthony fell to Cumberland in the Class 1A Moweaqua Central A&M Sectional championship game Monday. The game was postponed from Saturday due to rain.

And rain didn't stay away in this one either. But this time around it came in the seventh inning and ended the contest. Cumberland was leading 16-10 in the top of the seventh but when the game was called, the score reverts back to the previous inning and the Pirates were 14-10 winners.

Cumberland took a 1-0 first inning lead then had a four-run third. The Bulldogs clawed back with four runs to pull within 5-4 in the fourth. Cumberland then brought home five runs in the top of the fifth to lead 10-4. But here came the Bulldogs again.

This time around St. Anthony tallied six runs to knot the score at 10-10. Then the Pirates scored four more in the top of the sixth.

Cumberland had 14 hits in the game led by Audrey Casey with three singles, Kyla Thornton with two singles and an RBI, Taylor Layton with two singles and an RBI, Olivia Titus with a single, double, home run and three RBI and Jasie McMechan with a single, double and four RBI.

St. Anthony had 11 hits in the game but served up four errors. Meghan Woltman had a single, double and five RBI, Morgan Gardewine a double, Makayla Walsh a triple and three RBI, Kate Richards a double and Paige Koester two singles and an RBI.

Class 2A Ina Super-Sectional

Maci Ingram proved to be just too much for Teutopolis High School as the Nashville sophomore pitcher no-hit the Wooden Shoes, striking out 16 for a 3-0 victory Monday.

And that's not to say Kadi Borries didn't have a good game on the mound for the Shoes. Borries pitched a four-hitter with six strikeouts.

Nashville tallied a run in the second as Hannah Yung lifted one over the left field fence to start the inning. Borries toughened up and got the next two on strikeouts and the final out on a ground out.

The Shoes got the bat on the ball in the opening inning when Anni Borries hit a pop up to first base. Danielle Repking hit a fly ball to centerfield in the third. A. Borries finished the game as the only Wooden Shoe player not to strike out. She had two pop flies and a ground out.
