TELLICO - Tellico and Midway squared off in a district softball matchup Tuesday afternoon. The Lady Bears couldn't get the bats going in this contest and fall to the Lady Green Wave 11-1 in five innings.
It was a pitchers' duel for three innings, as both teams would go scoreless until the fourth inning. In the top of the fourth Midway scored four runs to make it 4-0. Three of those runs came on a three-run home run to center field, and one came on a wild pitch. Tellico got its only run of the game in the bottom of the fourth to make it 4-1.
In the top of the fifth the Midway Lady Green Wave scored seven runs and broke the game wide open. Two of the seven runs came on a two run home run down the left field line. The score was 11-1 heading into the bottom of the fifth with the 10-run rule in effect.
Tellico got one more chance in the bottom of the fifth to continue the game. The Lady Bears got a single by Hannah Burrell to lead off the inning, but that was all they got.
Tellico will host Greenback on Tuesday April 16 and Loudon on Thursday April 18.
