Varsity Drops Pair to Lake Orion

On a beautiful summer like night the Dragons took on the Dragons of Lake Orion in a non-conference double header.  It would be a rough night for the Swartz Creek pitching staff.

Creek only managed 5 hits in the game.  Carah Pletscher singled and scored on another single by her sister Lauren Pletscher.  Abby Stringer singled and scored on a ground out by Kara Manier.  Daniel Heron and Hailey Fox also had hits in the game, but did not score.


Lake Orion pounded out 12 hits including 3 home runs, one which was a grand slam and 4 doubles.  The Dragons defense played solid in both games.

The Dragons only managed 5 hits in the nightcap as well.  Hanna Sayles and Fox led off with back to back singles.  Sayles scored on a wild pitch and Fox scored on an RBI single by Carah Pletscher.  That would be all the scoring the Dragons would do.  Sayles had another hit and Carah Pletscher doubled, but neither would score.


Lake Orion added 15 more hits including several doubles and a home run.  Even the outs they made were hard hits.  The Dragons defense got quite a workout tonight.


Swartz Creek will host Lapeer West in a Flint Metro League double header on Wednesday night.
