 In a game that included plenty of offense with a combined 23 runs on 24 hits between the two teams, the Parkway Lady Panthers defeated Van Wert 15-8 in non-conference action on Wednesday night.

Parkway scored one run in the top of the first, then added two runs over each of the next three frames, but truly put the back-breaker on the Lady Cougars with a six-run fifth.

Paige Stephenson went 3-for-5 at the plate with three RBI and three runs scored. Maddie Jacobs also collected three RBI, Meah Suzuki went 2-for-4 and Meg Henkle reached the base-paths four times on two hits and two walks.

Danielle Huff picked up the win inside the circle in relief of starter Madison Louth. Huff took over in the third inning and pitched four frames, gave up six runs (four earned) on eight hits and struck out one batter.

The Lady Panthers did the majority of their damage off of starter Marissa Mottinger who took the loss after letting 13 runs (eight earned) cross the plate on 12 hits in 4.1 innings. Emilee Phillips finished the game in relief.

At the plate, Van Wert went for nine hits as team, two of them from Emma Kennedy and two from Alexa Gearhart. Both Kennedy and Sydnee Savage drove in two runs and Savage scored three times.

Van Wert plated two runs in the third and fifth innings, then put together a four-run rally in the fourth inning for their total of eight.

Parkway (7-11, 0-5 MAC) resumes conference play on Thursday night at home against St. Henry. Van Wert (5-10, 5-3 WBL) is also back in action on Thursday for a WBL tilt against Kenton.
