Woodrow 5

Bluefield 3

BLUEFIELD — In spite of timely home runs from Bluefield's Grace Richardson and Maddie Lawson, Lady Flying Eagles relief pitcher Aubrey Smallwood bought Beckley the opportunity to get ahead and stay there for a tense 5-3 win at Bluefield on Wednesday.

Smallwood came on for starter Taylor Scott in the fifth to keep a Lady Beavers rally from raging out of control, confining it to two runs. Smallwood was one of two Woodrow baserunners who scored on Brooke Bird's sixth inning double for the 4-3 go ahead. Kacie Fraley, who went 2-for-3 with a two-run blast in the second frame, plated Bird for the extra cushion.

Smallwood did her part to maintain the status quo and collect the victory in relief, but Lady Beavers pitcher Izzy Smith kept her own foot in the door in the seventh.

Smith struck out eight and walked one for the Lady Beavers, but allowed five earned runs off six hits.

Bird finished 2-for-4 for the Flying Eagles.
