Lincoln grabbed the upper hand in the Talladega County Softball Tournament Saturday, moving into the winner’s bracket through some superb pitching before inclement weather suspended play to a yet-to-be-determined date.

The Lady Golden Bears have won three games in the tournament – 7-0 over Lincoln, 10-0 over Sylacauga and 10-0 over Fayetteville – giving up zero runs and only two hits. Ray Powell three a four-inning perfect game against Sylacauga.

At the plate, Taylor Houck went 5-for-7 with two doubles, Ashley Williams went 3-for-5 with six RBIs, Carlee Mullinax went 3-for-7 with a homer and four RBIs and Stay Curry is 4-for-8 with two RBIs.

“It was a total team effort; pitching, hitting and defense were all great this weekend,” Lincoln coach Shea Monroe said. “Our coaches (Chad Mullinax, Louis Williams and Kodi Doty) did a phenomenal job putting people in position to execute.

“Our kids are resilient and a lot of fun to be around. As a coach it’s very easy to be around these girls. I love them and I hope they continue to just be themselves and play as hard as they can.”

Munford, Sylacauga and Fayetteville remain in the loser’s bracket. The coaches are expected to meet Monday to determine a suitable date to resume.
