The Harrison County Fillies traveled to Clarksville, Tenn., last weekend and won three straight games before falling to Macon County, Tenn., 6-2 in the second game on Saturday.
The Fillies opened the tournament by playing Ohio County, Ky., (2-6) and edging the Lady Eagles by a 2-1 score.  
Senior Ashley Coppage drove in both Fillies runs in the game with a double and a sacrifice fly.  
Ohio County’s pitching limited the Fillies to only two hits, the Coppage double and a single by Sydney Motell.  
The Fillies played error-free ball in the five-inning game shortened by the time limit.  
Jami Davis struck out nine and did not walk anyone to pick up the victory.  Davis gave up four hits in the five innings.
The Fillies finished Friday’s play with a 4-1 win over Clarksville Academy of Tennessee.  
Morgan Grose drove in two runs in the game for the Fillies while Coppage drove in one with her fifth home run of the season.  
Haley Powers drove in the fourth Harrison County run.  Motell and Powers each scored a run with Coppage scoring twice.  
Davis was again the winning pitcher allowing two hits and one run in the five-inning game. She struck out eight and walked one while her teammates again played error free.
Hume Fogg Academy, Tennessee, was the first Saturday opponent for the Fillies and Coach Christine Garnett handed the ball to sixth grader Bailey Conley to pitch for Harrison County.  
Conley responded by picking up her first high school victory with a six-strike-out, one-walk effort.  
Conley allowed six hits in six innings and again Harrison County was error free.  
Jami Davis had three hits to lead the Fillies while Motell continued her good hitting with two more hits, two stolen bases and two runs.  
Morgan Grose had the lone Fillies extra base hit with a double and Grose also scored twice.  
Macon County took advantage of a fielding lapse by Harrison County to pull out the 6 to 2 win for Harrison County’s first loss of the season leaving the Fillies with a 7-1 record.  
Davis pitched for Harrison County and allowed seven hits in five innings and her fielders made three errors behind her.  
In fact, only one of the Macon County runs was earned.  
Macon County broke the game open in the top of the fourth when they turned a 2-2 game into a 6-2 affair scoring four times.   
The Fillies only managed three hits for the game with Davis, Grose and Macy Martin each with one.  
Gross scored both Harrison County runs.  
“We won some games even though we didn’t hit,” noted Coach Garnett. “Our defense and pitching stepped up in this tournament, which was important.”  
The Fillies were to host Bourbon County Tuesday night on the Hilltop before traveling to Corbin for the Lady Red Hound Classic on Friday and Saturday.
