The Medina U14 Fillies earned a split over the weekend in Metro Girls Softball League action at Vets Park defeating the Amherst Thunder 11-10 on Sunday after dropping a narrow 7-5 decision to Cambria on Saturday.

Amherst grabbed an early 2-0 lead in the season contest but the Fillies answered with 6 runs in the second sparked by hits from Camri King, Ryenn Oliver,  Lacey Kenward, Tessa Boyce, and Grace Cook.

The teams traded runs in the 4th and the Thunder took the lead in the top of the 5th scoring 4 times.

However, the Fillies again answered back in the home half of the frame to retie the contest at 9-9. A triple by Morgan Allis ignited that rally which also included an RBI single by Kenward and a double by Abi Neuman.

The Fillies defence was stout in the 6th blanking the Thunder.

The Fillies then regained the lead for good in the home half of the sixth by scoring twice with two outs on a home run by Micaela Erway and a double by King.

Amherst scored 1 more in the seventh, but the Fillies got the final win clinching out at third base on a relay by Libby Cook, Brandi Guild and Camri King as a Thunder runner tried to stretch a double.
