The fighting Bucks softball team tried to play two games this last week. The first game of the week saw the Bucks hosting the Fighting Scots of Scotland County. Neither offense could get anything going as the starting pitchers handcuffed all the batters keeping the game scoreless into the fifth inning. Mother Nature stepped in and the rains moved in forcing the suspension of the game. The game will be completed on Friday, April 1 when the Fighting Bucks visit Scotland County. The game will be picked up with the top of the 6th inning and the score is still 0 - 0. Bucks starting pitcher Tam Lowery recorded 9 strikeouts and had given up one hit when play was suspended. In the Bucks first road conference game of the season, the Fighting Bucks visited the Lee County Yellowjackets. Both teams put up runs in the first inning and the Bucks faced a 3 - 2 deficit going into the second inning. From this point on it was all Bucks on offense and Tam Lowery shut down the Yellowjackets recording 14 strikeouts while surrendering three walks. The Bucks would score five runs in the second and fifth innings to blow the game wide open. The Bucks offense was led by Junior Alaina Goins going 3 for 4 with 5 RBI. Starting pitcher Tam Lowery would help herself at the plate going 3 for 4 with 3 RBI. As a team, the Bucks would record 12 hits including 6 doubles and one triple along with 5 stolen bases leading to the Buck’s 13 - 3 victory over Lee County High School.
