Manual holds off Fern Creek 2-0, following a great performance by their pitcher Emilia Clemons (#18, 10).

“Our pitcher Emilia Clemons did a great job for us yesterday. She threw a lot of strikes and let her defense work behind her. Our catcher Caroline Carmony called a great game behind the plate,” coach Hundley said.

“We want to continue with our great pitching and defense. We would like to see our offense get back on track soon,” coach Hundley said.

Their next game will be on Saturday as they host Spencer County at 11.
