Red Devils beat MV 9-6 in semifinals




PENDLETON — Mt. Vernon went into Tuesday night’s sectional matchup with Richmond 9-16, but perhaps playing its best softball of the season.

The Marauders kept their momentum going by striking for five early runs against the 19-11 Red Devils and had chances to add more.

But after the second inning, it was almost all Richmond.

The Red Devils outscored MV 7-1 from the top of the third on, and defeated the Marauders 9-6 in a Class 4A-Sectional 9 semifinal at Pendleton Heights’ Legends Field.

Two-time reigning Class 3A sectional champ MV looked to duplicate its Monday win over Greenfield-Central in its 4A postseason debut, but found Richmond to be too strong on this night.

“(Richmond’s) a good team, a little bit better than I thought they were,” MV coach Mike McGill said. “We played them pretty well, but we made a couple of mistakes that cost us a little bit, and I think that’s been going on with our program pretty much all year.”
