A four-run inning by Ashford led to a 4-3 loss for the Goshen Lady Eagles in game one of the Wicksburg High School Invitational.
The Lady Eagles (5-5) held 2-0 in the top of the third, but a four-run bottom of the third was too much to overcome in the four-inning contest.
Hannah Calhoun got the start in game one and pitched a complete game, while allowing the four runs on six hits and a walk.
The Eagles began the scoring in the first with a Madison Campbell double, driving in Calhoun.
Calhoun and Campbell were back at it in the top of the third inning. Calhoun began the inning with a walk and came around to score on a two-run home run off the bat of Campbell to put Goshen up 3-0.
In the next half-inning, Ashford took the lead when they scored four runs on four hits, including a three-run home run to center to give them the lead at 4-3.
Campbell finished the contest with the only two hits for the Goshen Eagles.
The eagles allowed a five-run second inning in their 6-5 loss to Pleasant Home in game two on Friday night.
Brooke Bennett got the start. Bennett pitched one inning and allowed four earned runs, five total on three hits. Mary-Kate Mills pitched the remaining three innings. She allowed one unearned run on eight hits and four walks. She struck out three.
The Eagles finished with three hits by Bennett, Lexi McLendon and and Lydia Harrison.
