SLIPPERY ROCK — The Grove City and Slippery Rock softball game had more hills and valleys than a roller coaster at Cedar Point.
The Lady Eagles sandwiched the first 12 and the final 4 runs in a 16-8 Region 5 victory over their chief rivals at Slippery Rock High School Thursday afternoon.
Grove City coach Dave Gatewood said: “We got up on them early and I wasn’t on them as much as I probably should have been (in the middle innings) to keep the gas pedal down. We gave up 8 runs after we were up 12-0, but we came back to score (4) more runs to put it away.”
Jordyn Anderson, Jordan Malczak, Lauren Wentz and Gabby Herald ripped consecutive doubles as Grove City eased to a 5-0 lead in the first inning. The Lady Eagles extended their cushion to 8 runs in the second inning behind singles from Anderson, Malczak, Wentz and Kelly McClearn.
Grove City took what appeared to be an insurmountable 12-0 lead in its next at bat after McClearn’s huge two-out, 3-run single. “We batted around in the first inning, so that’s good,” Gatewood said. “It was a good game for us. We’re seeing the ball real well. The girls are hitting the ball very hard and good things happen when you do that.”
The Lady Rockets started their comeback in the bottom of the third with RBI singles from Julianna Hutchinson and JoElla Neal. Taylor Balint’s 2-run single in the fourth cut the deficit to 12-4.
Slippery Rock got within a reasonable striking distance in the fifth by putting up a 4-spot with 2 runs coming off an errant pitch.
“I liked the girls’ fight,” Slippery Rock coach Dan Hindman said. “That’s something we’ve been talking about a lot over the course of our season. I was pretty pleased with how they didn’t turtle up and give up. As disappointing of a loss as it was, there were some positives to take out it as well.”
After loading the bases with 2 outs in the sixth, Grove City took control of the game when the throw off an Anderson grounder was high and wide, allowing McClearn, Morgan Shingledecker and Camryn Billig to score.
“Seven runs instead of 4 makes a huge difference,” Hindman said. “We didn’t have a lot of time to make that up, but that play definitely wasn’t the difference in the game. At the end of the day, you have to be able to field routine balls and we weren’t able to do that tonight.
“No matter how you look at it, we had several average to above-average plays that we’re capable of making that we didn’t. We had to make the routine plays and it cost us the game.”
The Lady Eagles tacked on an insurance run in the top of the seventh.
“I think they got a little tense there for a while, but they’re fighters,” Gatewood said. “They came back and that’s all that matters to me. I think Jordyn beat the throw because she’s so fast, but the throw allowed everyone to come around to score.”
After multiple members of the Lady Eagles had seen typical SR starting pitcher Cheyenne Hindman at least 4 times over their careers, Dan Hindman decided to go with Aislynn Duffy in her stead inside the circle, but Duffy lasted just 4 outs against the red-hot Grove City bats.
Cheyenne Hindman and Duffy combined to allow 17 hits, 4 walks and struck out 5.
“Grove City is a team has seen ‘Chey’ several times,” Dan Hindman said. “It was my hope to get through their lineup at least once with Aislynn. If you take away that first inning, chances are we get through that one round of their lineup and get to ‘Chey’ to finish it out, but it didn’t work out. We wanted to roll the dice and see what we came up with.”
For the game, Grove City belted 9 doubles and all 9 starters collected at least one hit.
“I did not know that,” Gatewood said. “Nine doubles is good. We’re doing that real well right now as you can see.”
Gatewood was pleased with how his club has handled adversity through a little more than half the season.
“We’ve faced a lot of adversity this year already,” he said. “It’s truly prepared us for games like this where things aren’t going our way and we’re creating our own adversity. When we lost Lizzie Malczak to a broken arm up at Saegertown, that was adversity. When one of my players’ parent died, that’s adversity. We’ve overcome a lot of adversity to get to where we’re at and that only makes us stronger.”

Billig, Malczak and Herald singled and doubled, while McClearn whacked 2 singles. ... McClearn had 4 RBIs and Wentz and Herald each drove in 3 runs. ...
