Elise Smith leads Potters

EAST LIVERPOOL – Elise Smith made an impact for East Liverpool Saturday in its doubleheader with Wellsville.

Smith struck out 17 as allowed just two hits as the Potters beat the Tigers 5-1 in the first game. Smith also had a single, double and a home run, along with Chelsea Possage’s two doubles and Lindsay Baker’s two singles.

Domenica Cartwright had a single, and struck out seven on the mound.

Smith struck out six more in the second game and hit two singles and a triple as the Potters shutout the Tigers 17-7 in five innings.

Possage also had four singles in the game along with Baker’s three singles.

Mystic Beatty had a single and two doubles for the Tigers, and struck out four on the mound.

“Today we had Baker, Possage and Smith step up in a big way especially with the bat where they had a combined 19 hits in the double header,” Potters coach Erik Adkins said. “The coaching staff couldn’t have been happier with the two game performance.”

The Potters are now 8-5 on the season.
