The Lady Tigers got it on Tuesday night at Herbert Hoover with a 1-0 victory over the Huskies at Falling Rock.
The win snapped a four-game losing skid as Class AA No. 1-ranked Chapmanville improved to 13-5 overall and 7-2 in the Cardinal Conference.
It was the third win this season over Hoover. The Lady Tigers also beat the Huskies 10-2 in the Best of the Best tourney and took a 6-0 victory over Hoover at home on April 13.
Chapmanville hadn’t won a game since an April 15 victory over Spring Valley at the Cabell Midland Sluggerfest. CRHS had since lost four straight to Lincoln County, Scott twice and Logan.
Allison Evans pitched the complete game win for the Lady Tigers on Tuesday night. She allowed three hits and three walks while striking out 10.
Haley McCann led the Chapmanville offense with two hits.
Evans, Heather Nagy and Brandi Broom had one hit each.
“We needed to get a win,” CRHS coach Ronnie Ooten said. “We’re aren’t hitting the ball that well but we played well enough to win.”
Chapmanville is scheduled to play at Tolsia today at 5:30 p.m., weather permitting. The Lady Tigers then travel to Wayne on Thursday and then to Poca on Friday. Chapmanville closes out the regular season on Monday at Wayne.
CRHS had originally been slated to host Wayne on Thursday and go to Wayne next Monday but Ooten said the games were switched.
Next Tuesday, Chapmanville is set to begin play in the best-of-three sectional series with Scott.
The Lady Tigers are 1-2 against the Skyhawks this season.
n An error was made in last Thursday’s sports section in the Chapmanville-Logan game story. In a collision between Chapmanville shortstop Jenna Evans and left fielder Brandi Broom, Evans was given credit with the catch on a fly ball.
Actually, it was Broom who made the grab in foul territory.
