Major Injuries Hurt Cards Chances at Macon

It was a tough night for the South Shelby Cardinals as they lost more than the 32-12 decision to Macon. The Cardinals lost four key players to injuries Friday night at Macon.
   Playing without starting quarterback and defensive back Chase Morrow, who suffered a rib injury a couple of weeks earlier at Palmyra, the Cardinals counted on sophomore Cody McKenzie to run the offense. McKenzie did a good job for someone making their first varsity start at the position.
   After the Cardinals punted on their first possession, it was Macon who struck first. The Tigers went 59 yards on four plays, scoring on a 53 yard touchdown pass to Jace Glover down the left sideline. The point after made it 7-0 Macon with 8:05 to play in the opening quarter.
   Both teams traded possessions and the Cardinals trailed 7-0 after one quarter of play.
   Macon was able to block a South Shelby punt which gave the Tigers the ball on the Cardinal 10 yard line. South Shelby’s defense stepped up and was able to hold the Tigers, who were penalized three straight plays, twice for holding and once for facemask. The Tigers were then sacked on third down and faced fourth and goal from the South Shelby 34 yard line, and were forced to punt.

The South Shelby Lady Birds traveled to Westran on Tuesday, September 22, and came away with a 5-3 win to give South Shelby its 15th win of the season, which is the most wins in a single season for the Lady Birds.
   After a scoreless first inning, Alex Fenton singled in the top of second inning with one out. Courtesy runner Lily Wegman later came around to score on an RBI single by Kyliee Lanpher. The Lady Birds led 1-0 heading to the bottom of the second inning.
   The score remained 1-0 until the top of the fifth inning. Rachelle Chinn singled to lead off the fifth inning. Ebony Teter followed with a single, putting runners on the corners with no outs. Kenzie Kendrick followed with a double to centerfield that scored both Chinn and Teter to give the Lady Birds a 3-0 lead. South Shelby had a chance for more in the inning, loading the bases with one out, but a strikeout and groundout ended the threat.
   Whitney Fountain doubled with one out in the top of the sixth inning, which was followed by an RBI single by Chinn to give South Shelby a 4-0 lead. Teter followed with a walk and Kendrick grounded out to score Chinn and push the lead to 5-0, which was the score after five and a half innings.
   Westran scored once in the bottom of the sixth inning and two runs in the bottom of the seventh inning to cut the lead to 5-3, which was the final.
   Chinn led the Lady Birds going 3-for-4, two runs scored, and one RBI. Kendrick added two hits, including a double, and finished with three RBIs. Fenton and Lanpher also added two hits.
   Fenton pitched seven innings, allowing two earned runs on seven hits to notch the win. She walked two and struck out seven batters.
