The Williamstown Demons competed for six innings, before eventually falling to Pendleton County 8-2, April 2 at Williamstown High School.

“Overall it was our best game this year,” Demons coach A.J. Mason said. “We did nothing to beat ourselves. Pendleton County hit the ball when they needed to. Right now our biggest struggle is hitting.”

The Demons weren’t able to get any rallies going and were unable to get key hits to break the game wide open.

“We are not sitting on the curveball and still have the tendency to swing at bad pitches,” Mason said.
Demons senior Austin Caudill was effective up until the final two innings of the game, when the Wildcats managed to break a 2-2 tie and score six runs.

“Caudill’s performance was great,” Mason said. “He didn’t walk anyone and he let the defense play.

Caudill was happy with his performance until then, but wants to continue improving.

“I felt pretty good,” Caudill said. “At the end, I was throwing the ball too much down the middle, but overall, it was a nice outing.”

Caudill even made a good defensive play, catching a line drive back to the mound.

“Thankfully he didn’t hit his hardest,” Caudill said. “I was just glad I put my glove where it was suppose to be.

With the loss, the Demons now move to a record of 0-4 on the season, but Mason said team is moving in the right direction.

“We will keep working on our hitting and build off of this game,” Mason said.

Their next game will be on April 7 at Frankfort. First pitch is set for 1 p.m.
