Despite have a 4-1 lead at Pine Tree in the bottom of the third inning when rains came, the Lady Cats and the Lady Pirates will have to start from scratch when the two teams get back together in Pine Tree Monday at 5 p.m.
On KSST Radio and Cable Channel 18’s Saturday Morning Coaches Show, Lady Cats Softball Coach David Carrillo said that scenario is what the district’s softball rules call for. He also said that the rule was very likely to be changed soon so that games would pick up where they were when they were postponed. Coach Carrillo said Pine Tree scored a run in the bottom of the first and then the Lady Cats responded with a pair of runs in both the second and third innings. Sadie Stroud hit a home run that got washed away with the rest of Friday’s game.
The postponement means the Lady Cats will play three games this week. They will also host Marshall at Lady Cat Park Tuesday evening and then will travel to Texas High Friday evening. The Lady Cats are in first place by a game with a 7-1 district mark. Their season record is 20-5. Coach Carrillo said the team knows what is at stake. The Lady Cats have four district games left on the schedule and three of them take place this week as the Lady Cats try to nail down a district championship.
