FORT DEFIANCE – Gabrella Michael was solid on the mound and the Lady Indians put up a steady string of runs to top Harrisonburg 6-1 in softball Friday.
Fort only had a 2-1 lead heading into the bottom of the fifth when Mantha Smith hit a two run home run followed by a solo shot from Kyrsten Wood to put the game away for the Indians. Wood finished 2-3 from the plate.
Michael scattered only three hits and had eight strikeouts with the complete game effort.
Fort improves to 6-10 and heads to East Rockingham on Monday.
