Amanda Kantzler struck out 12 of the 31 batters she faced in Gadsden City’s 6-2 victory over Fort Payne in girls softball last Tuesday (Apr. 17) in Gadsden.
“This was a good win against a good team,” said Gadsden City head coach Corbin Holland. “Kantzler pitched a heck of a game.”
The Lady Titans (9-12-2) jumped out to a 3-0 lead in the bottom of the first inning and never looked back.
Gadsden City scored three runs on four hits and led 4-0 after four innings of play.
Fort Payne (20-13-1) cut the lead to 4-2 with single runs in the fourth and fifth innings, but a two-run sixth inning provided the Lady Titans with the margin of victory.
Makayla Brown drove in a pair of runs in the sixth inning with a two-out double.
Auburn Dupree led the GCHS at the plate with three hits.
Playing with torn quadriceps, Carson Gray caught the entire seven innings for the Lady Titans.
